The ladies started off with some classic cafe drinks: Iced Coffee and a Chai Latte. Both were not much more than average flavor-wise. Both Brandy and Baranina thought the drinks tasted rather watered down, but at least the portions were fairly generous.
While they had both ordered some sandwiches, Brandy and Baranina decided to snack on some sweet treats while they waited for their lunch to be brought to the table. Brandy chose a slice of Lemon Cheese Pie, un unusual decision for her as she normally steers away from anything lemon flavored (Brandy had a tragic childhood incident with some furniture polish she has never quite recovered from). She found the pie to be quite bright and pleasant, with a creamy texture to the filling that kept the lemon from being too overpowering Even the crust had a nice flakey consistency without being too thick. Baranina picked a Red Velvet Cupcake, which was not quite as good as the pie. The cake was extremely dry and flavorless, crumbling to nothing every time a bite was taken, and the frosting was overly sweet and chalky. "This is why I usually only eat cupcakes made fresh by my personal chef," Baranina said, setting the unpleasant pastry down.
Though the prices weren't terrible, between the uninterested employees, the lackluster edibles and drinkables, and the confusing atmosphere, Brandy wasn't sorry to see the outside of Unicorn Cafe. "Perhaps the next time you visit," she said to Baranina as she hugged her goodbye, "We'll be able to find somewhere a little more promising. I've heard good things about this place called Starbucks."
