Wickenden Street in Providence is lined with cute little shops, coffee shops, cafes, and restaurants, wedged between Brown University and India Point Park. The cutest of these is The Duck and Bunny, hard to miss as it's a pale pink house with old windows lined with flower beds, and centrally located. They call themselves a 'snuggery', and everything about the interior, including the menu, is as sweet.

A and I spent our warm and sunny Friday afternoon here, enjoying each other's company, music by The Smiths, and a delicious afternoon tea spread. For under $20, we were served five finger sandwiches, a scone, miniature baked goods, cream and jams, and a pot of tea (I chose white peony). A also ordered a couple IPAs, and the truffled pomme frites which are a must. The Duck and Bunny also do crepes, and crepzzas (crepe pizzas) in the evenings. My favorite dish was their nachos, but they unfortunately removed it from their menu. Of course, you can't leave a snuggery without a cupcake (or two) - I recommend the honey lavender or the mocha espresso. We had miniature red velvet and carrot cake cupcakes with our afternoon tea, which were also delectable.

The decor is airy and whimsical. Every painting has a duck or bunny (or both) - you can spot Vincent van Bunny and the Duck with a Pearl Earring in the photos. There are other famous paintings in which the duck and bunny aren't so easy to spot, but it's fun to try! The walls are painted in pastels with white trims, and chandeliers hang from the ceiling. The windows are draped with muted blue and white striped curtains, the tables have marble tops, and the silver chairs are like ones you would see in a Pinterest wedding. Whoever came up with the design concept did not miss a detail!

We may have attempted British accents that afternoon... :)
