I first discovered Three Sisters when I needed an oil change in a hurry. The East Side Shell service center said they could squeeze me in, but that I’d have to wait a few hours. Having work to do, I quickly googled for a free wifi café nearby and found Three Sisters two doors down. All I wanted was an iced tea and a place to work for a few hours. What I discovered was much more — a thick, gooey egg and cheese sandwich on an english muffin and an atmosphere that welcomed earnest laptop users and moms with strollers alike.
Today, the East Side Shell brought me back to Three Sisters since this morning we had a flat tire. I’ve been meaning to try their homemade ice cream, but keep showing up there at breakfast. In fact, I have nothing against eating an ice cream cone at 10 am, which is why I bought a pint of chocolate and some cones and took them home to eat. It’s a grittier chocolate — you can feel and taste the cocoa — but absolutely perfectly thick and creamy. Oh, and they also sell Only 8, a highly addictive frozen yogurt safe for dieters, diabetics, and those with lactose-intolerance. Yet I have the strange feeling that I won’t be getting the Only 8 next time either…
