I've been to the restaurant Paparazzi three times now. I plan to go back. My favorite thing is the gelato shop. I'm already addicted to Henry's "Buster Brown" flavor (chocolate/peanut butter).

BTW, I'm over at Brier Creek. We have some decent restaurants but nothing I'd call fancy. I also get tired of eating at the same places in my neighborhood. It's nice to have something like Lafayette Village that is a bit more upscale and only about a 10-15 minute drive away.

Looks like the Crepe place called "Simply Crepes" has now opened. They are located next to the Savory Spice Shop.

Ahhh....time to go back!

On our second trip we visited the Spice shop. What a lovely experience that was for the senses!

Nice! I remember trying their sample during the Lafayette Village opening weekend, but was disappointed they weren't actually opening for several months. I'm excited to go back. I love crepes...

Edit: Wow, that lady coming out of the door totally ruins the ambiance...

Many crepe-lovers suffer the same fate but, oh, what a way to go!

What an amazing shop is Savory Spice I just hope we get something like Lafayette Village in West Cary when the developers at Parkside Town Commons and the other planned commercial developments get under way. The developers have been smart by only leasing to speciality shops and restaurants which are not national chains.

I ate at Paparazzi earlier in the week. Great food at prices that were lower than what I expected. The Prosciutto di Parma sandwich was wonderful. The sandwich with two sides was $10 for lunch.

I went back to Lafayette Village to day and took her to Jubala Coffee. The process of them making a cup of coffee was like watching a professor in a Chemistry lab. It was also neat to see that there is a video camera that shows the guy making your espresso drink.

It is a bit strange though, that many of the stores are Italian-inspired and the facade looks like a villa, yet it uses the French-inspired name of Lafayette.
