    ... to head over to where my campus is and along the way I stopped at Caffe Scudieri's (my new favorite bakery) and got a croissant and a Caffe Americano. So today was my first experience with ordering a coffee at a bar, since it's cheaper than actually sitting down. First of all, you order the pastry, then you pay for it, and then you go pick it up.
