My initial plan was to call beforehand to ensure that I would not be making a aimless trip to Bay and Dundas, but as management would have it, the listed telephone number was "currently not in service". Brilliant business strategy if you ask me. (Do you sense the sarcasm?)
As I made my way to the entrance, I was both surprised and impressed to find that only five people were spotted dwelling in the lineup outside. A sign, which was evidently a whiteboard decorated to resemble a ladybug, was propped up on a chair at the foot of the door ledge; it notified customers that the current wait time ranged between ten and fifteen minutes, and that today's batch of cheesecakes would be stamp-less (for whatever reason).
She suggested that I return after 3:00 PM, as that was when their second batch would be produced.
Having to follow a strict commuter schedule meant that obtaining the Angel Hat Cake was just not in the cards for that day, so I headed next door to the Matcha Cafe. There was no lineup whatsoever, so I was able to take my time and select three items to make the trip seem a little more worthy.
