First Day

Girasol re-opened yesterday lunchtime. I had a late breakfast there, and watched a steady stream of regulars returning after the month-long renovation. A happy scene. I had no thought of taking out my camera. Though I'll confess to liking the look of the place just the way it was before , it's now very bright and open, with room for a few tables. You can pull up a stool to sit at the counter at right, and watch the griddle action (my favorite kind of spot), or perch at a counter at back of the bakery. There are smaller, less sociable, ledges to sit at by the wall on the other side of the room, & taking up most of the wall there, there's a bold, beautiful, traditional mural.
Still open 24 hours. Still a menu to love. Still a pleasure to visit.  We're lucky to have it still around. Welcome back.
