Do you enjoy french delights? Rendez Vous Cafe is a French Bakery that serves authentic French food and desserts. The cafe is located in Corona del Mar, California. The baked goods such as crepes, pastries, and bread are freshly made from scratch on the daily. Not only do they provide the best taste and highest quality in making all of the goodies, but they also use the finest of ingredients. The owners and staff members at Rendez Vous Cafe are friendly, generous, and kind-hearted. I've noticed they are not just kind and friendly to me, but also kind and friendly to their other patrons.

The decor of the cafe is absolutely adorable. The color combination of pink, purple, and white are very appealing to the eyes. I love the flower wall that is located by the entrance. It’s definitely Instagram worthy for sure. The flower wall is great as a backdrop for food photography or capturing moments with your loved ones. The gorgeous black, white, and beige marbling tables also adds on to the aesthetic of the cafe. The vibe and atmosphere of this cute cafe is warm and cozy (and a little girly). It is the perfect place to eat breakfast or brunch with family and friends. There are a few tables inside and outside their patio area. Too bad that indoor dining is unavailable due to these uncertain times. Currently, they have outdoor dining, take-out, and delivery services available.

My personal favorites are their fruit tarts, Raspberry Mocha, and Croque Madame. I come back for these (almost) everytime. The fruit tarts are made with dough with a firm and crumbly crust. The fruit tarts are a mix of sour and sweetness together. The pastry is like bread and the vanilla custard oozes while taking each bite. The custard smells delicious just like milk and vanilla. The fruits on top are fresh, juicy, moist, and soft. The Raspberry Mocha is a nice and warm tasty drink. The coffee-beans are not strong in the Raspberry Mocha. It has a slight tart taste from the raspberry. The best part of this drink is the raspberry whipped cream on top. This drink is very comforting and delicious to sip on a cold day and night. The Croque Madame is a dish made with melted cheese that is spread on top of a double layered toast. The options are ham or turkey and a sunny side egg on top. The Croque Madame is a warm and crunchy sandwich. The melted cheese and eggs trickle down to the side of the bread. It is full of so much flavor. This is one of my favorite French breakfast dishes to order here.

Want to spring forward to Barton Springs Pool in Austin, Texas?

(Photo by Natasha Nguyen) What to do during Spring Break? Why not go to Barton Springs Pool in Austin, Texas. The pools are open on Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Be sure to swim at your own risk. The Barton Springs Pool is about three acres in size with an average of 68-70 degrees. This temperature is ideal for year-round swimming. The pools are about 0' to 18' deep. They also have a diving board more towards the middle of the pool. There are tons of grassy area all around for the guest to sunbathe and relax. I enjoyed walking on the trails along the springs. This also leads to more grassy area or a park. Please note that there are no food, coolers, pets, and other things not allowed inside. Be sure to eat ahead of time so you won't get hangry. You can at least bring water bottles that hasn't been open. Also, please check the guidelines before entering. The springs is served to help protect the salamaders and wildlife here. Be respectful as much as possible. The Barton Springs Pool is closed every Thursdays to clean and to help maintain the pool area. There are no reservations required. However, capcity is limited and there is a 2 hour limit during this time due to COVID-19. Please make sure to follow all safety and health measures. Visiting the Barton Springs Pool was one of our most memorable experience. I've always wanted to swim in spring water and have my own form of purification.
