My car's GPS led me to Bobo's. You see, my 2013 toyota did not recognize my sister's new home address and it took me to Somers. I had been traveling from Maryland and, coming off the exit, I saw Bobo's sign. Coffee, i thought. Coffee and a break would help me get to my sister's in Baldwin Place. I walked in to a happy, crowded cafe that smelled like warm sugar and toasted bread, soaked in espresso. Place was poppin'. All tables taken with coffee and happiness enthusists. Waiting in line, I noticed the offerings in the case. A fruit laden topped parfait caught my eye. I picked it up and saw the bottom, and curiously and frighteningly asked the server, " Is this tunafish?" (#tunaiscatfoodtome) He smiled and said, "No, overnight oats." I placed an order of a red eye coffee and the oats and waited. A table opened and when my order came, my overnight oats obsession officially began. Berries to chopped walnuts to soft granola ratio was mathematical genius. Subtle hint of cinnamon joined with earthy flavored grains. My spoon dove to last layer. It was a creamy blend of oatmeal that had the texture of a pudding. Almost a rice pudding feel to it. It was absolutely delicious. It was one of the best things I have eaten in a long time. The red eye espresso paired well with the oats in front of me. That Bobo's plastic container will now serve as a water dish for my dog, Max, when he travels with me in the car. I found my way to Baldwin place with a happy tummy. The next day, I took my sister and my niece to Bobo's again. I couldn't stop talking about my oats. While we were researching Bobo's, we found out that soon they will be coming to Baldwin Place. Cheers erupted. The snow was about to fall in that small town in New York that Saturday. All was warm and cozy inside Bobo's as I had another oatmeal dish, this time with bananas. An avocado toast for my niece and for my sister, Moe's sandwich. To think, a lack of an update from a Toyota Venza led me to find Bobo's. I am now addicted. And so are the people I love who live in Baldwin Place.
