A Trip to lucettegrace


The church Dave and I attend is right in the heart of downtown Raleigh, and we love taking advantage of being in the city every Sunday by going out for brunch or coffee after Mass. I’ve been itching to try lucettegrace ever since I first spotted the yellow barstools through the window a few months ago, and when I found out that the founder is the same pastry chef I worked with on my first Southern Weddings shoot two years ago, I knew it would be amazing. Dave and I stopped by on Sunday and it immediately became one of our new favorite spots–we split a ham and cheese croissant and a chocolate croissant, and each had one of their signature iced coffees. When it comes to iced coffee, we don’t mess around, and we both loved them!
