Birthday celebration (part 1)

Walking purposelessly around one of our favorite neighborhoods to eventually meander into a cafe for lunch. Along the stroll we spotted this gangster Marilyn Monroe.

Chill lunch of kale farro salad and caramelized onions steak sandwich at Oddfellows, the cafe equivalent of the high-ceiling, exposed brick, hardwood floors type of space we dream of living in.

Dessert of haupia cake and green tea tiramisu with coffees at Hiroki. The day was slow-paced the way I like, and my fiancé planned a birthday dinner with my friends which I'll post later.
