A Picture Is Worth a Thousand...

...well, you know the rest.

At Macondo Latin Bistro -- the subject of this week's cafe review -- I was just as charmed by the fine little dining room as I was the food. I found myself lingering there far longer than was necessary and eagerly planning return visits for breakfast, my favorite time at the restaurant, especially on the weekends.

There's something about the tall ceilings, the decorative shutters on those high windows above the doors, the rich wooden bar and floors and the kaleidoscopic paint on the walls that called to mind Cuba or perhaps some of the smaller islands in the West Indies. It's enchanting.

But sometimes words alone aren't enough. Take a quick trip through Macondo for yourself in this week's slideshow, then take a trip to the restaurant itself while the weather is nice and you can enjoy a glass of maracuya on the patio.
