The Duck & Bunny: A Snuggery | Providence, Rhode Island

Boston is still trying to decide if it wants to be spring or summer. Today may be in the 50s, but on Saturday New England was glorious at a steady 75-80 degrees (and no rain, contrary to weather predictions)!

It was the perfect weather for our day trip to the adorable Providence, Rhode Island.

We spent our day shopping in the air conditioned mall and wandering the brick-lined streets of downtown Providence. When we were sufficiently all shopped-out, we ventured to the east side to grab lunch at the cutest place EVER: The Duck & Bunny: A Snuggery.

I know, I know. Even the name is ridiculously cute. Just wait until you walk in. It gets cuter.

The front room reminds me of an old Parisian cafe mixed with Old English accents. The walls were lined with ivory upholstery and feather pillows, with lace curtains keeping out the late afternoon rays. A large chandelier lights the room from the windows to the bar. 



The neighboring room contrasts the front room with its black painted walls. There's also a back patio, but we couldn't visit because there was a bridal shower there at the time.

I ordered the Eggs Bun-A-Ducks (sounds like eggs bennedict when you say it fast). The meal was simple and healthy, with two poached eggs and a side of hollandaise on Olga's rosemary focaccia. Olga's is known for it's bread in Providence. I also had a choice of black forest ham, florentine, smoked salmon, and bacon & avocado. Naturally, I chose the bacon and avocado option, and it didn't disappoint. The whole meal came with a side salad of mixed greens though it wasn't mentioned on the menu - nice surprise!

All in all I was very pleased with my bun-a-ducks. The eggs were fluffy and perfectly runny, the avocado was plentiful, and Olga's bread lived up to the hype.

I washed it all down with an iced Wild Bluberry tea that I was obsessed with. The bright pink color against the blueberries was gorgeous, and the drink didn't hold an excess of caffeine.

The Duck & Bunny is also known for its cupcakes, of which they have a variety of creative flavors each day. We went with mocha espresso and straberries -n- cream, but they sadly got squished in our final run through the mall before catching our train back to Boston. They still tasted great though!

Our trip to Providence was the perfect summer day. Warm and sunny with a breeze, plenty of shopping (and NO state sales tax!), great food, and adorable atmosphere.
