Choc came in through the doors of the SnS bakery early in the morning, humming a tune as he walked behind the counter, checked the cash register and put on his apron. "Just great. Another day in this uptight city, and another day away from home." Choc said to himself as he checked the baked goods. "Thank Celestia. Last night's shift restocked for me. That's one less thing I have to do." He then proceeded to sit down in a chair behind the counter, to wait for the day's first customer.

Octavia Melody had never been fond of mornings. Yes, she had learned to get up whenever necessary, be it 10:00 AM or the crack of dawn, but that didn't mean she had to like it. Luckily for her, this was not a morning where she would be racing against the sun's progress past the horizon. By the time she actually got out of bed, showered, and ready for her day, it was nearly... 9:00. AM.

"Hmph. Alright, perhaps I need practice sleeping in and relaxing." She said as she took a passing glance at the clock, hoof on the door and ready to open it. She stood deep in thought on that topic for a few seconds, before finally shrugging, resettling her precious cello in its case on her back, opening the door, and stepping through it. Have an apartment on the second floor was both a blessing and a curse. She was lucky enough to have a window that overlooked the city, or at least part of it, and the view was much better then on the ground. However, the second floor meant stairs. And after a long day, climbing stairs with a heavy instrument on her back was awful. Still, there was nothing she could do about it. She trotted quickly down the stairs, making her way out of the building complex.

"First priority, breakfast." She said, with a brisk nod as though she was agreeing with herself. She often cooked meals by herself, but every one and a while she ate out somewhere, as a treat. Getting breakfast out was her favorite, since it was both the cheapest, and the biggest improvement from the food she would have made herself. She trotted down the street cheerfully, trying to decide where was calling her the most. She paused before a rather large bakery, looking up at the sign.

"The Sweet and Savory Bakery? Sounds promising. I wonder how this place has alluded my attention before; it's so close to my apartment." She stopped, trying to think if she had even seen the bakery in passing previously. Nothing came to mind, but that didn't mean much, she had been known to miss rather obvious things before. Another shrug, another cello resettling, and she walked in. The first that came to mind was quaint, more like something you would see in a town like Ponyville, but not in a bad way. Off to the left there were a few small tables, only one of which was occupied, and to the back was the counter, menu, and display. Octavia walked up to the counter, throwing a quick smile in the direction of the brown-coated unicorn behind the counter before looking in the display case.

"Hmm... I have never been here before, so I am not sure what's good. What would you recommend?" She asked, finally making steady eye contact with the stallion. Given his cutie mark, she decided she probably knew what answer was coming, but she had to give him a chance anyway.
An eternal night will come.
