Ellen's Ice Cream
Taylor Books
Rick Lee's Photoblog
The Boulevard
Dan Kehde, Mark Scarpelli and the Contemporary Youth Arts Company
The 200 block of Capitol Street
First Watch
Capitol Roaster's Cafe

I work on the 200 block of Capitol Street and live not too far from First Watch. I agree with your list.

Rick Lee said...

Thanks dude... I like all of those places too. I like Delish an awful lot.

Left out "The Blossom"... The crowds are a little tough sometimes at lunch, but the food is great!

Rick, Delish is great as well!

Yes, Delish was a huge oversight on my part. Definitely a treasure.

Can't say Blossom makes my cut. Great restaurant, yes, but lacking the "simple pleasure" kind of intangible I was thinking of.

Now back in the days of my youth when it was a "dairy" first and foremost it would have made my list. A Saturday visit to downtown always included a shake at the Blossom. (That gives me an idea for my next post!)
