If you ever happen to be in Tunbridge Wells, I highly recommend that you visit Juliets. It’s a gorgeous cafe with a great savoury menu consisting of a daily changing selection of salads and sandwiches as well as a vast selection of tempting cakes!

I was won over by their baked squid stuffed with parmesan, sourdough breadcrumbs and basil pesto, which I had with bulghar wheat pilaf with perry marinated sultanas, roasted carrot, onion, coriander and pink peppercorns and tricalore bell pepper chop salad with spring onion, rocket, sesame, Dijon and cider vinegar and of course I finished my meal off with a huuuge slice of carrot cake! 🙂

Just over a week ago I was invited to the opening party of ‘Hunt & Darton Cafe’ a pop-up cafe and live installation performance art project. It’s one of eight commissions thought up by members of  Live Art Collective East, taking advantage of unusual spaces and places in East Anglia as part of the Cultural Olympiad. I didn’t know what to expect but was very tickled by the whole project…Hunt & Darton are extremely funny ladies. I took a few photo’s of the things that had me chuckling…

It’s a fully functioning cafe with a witty, tongue in cheek twist, definitely worth a visit.

This morning I hot-footed it down to Trumpington Street to purchase some of their infamous sticky chelsea buns.

Thanks have to got to Tim Hayward and his family for bringing back a much loved place and….doing it so well! mmmm

This weekend I finally fulfilled my ambition to visit the Towpath Cafe (Regent’s Canal towpath, between Whitmore Bridge and Kingsland Road Bridge, N1 5SB). My sunny Sunday brunch consisted of zingy runner bean, red onion and Berkswell cheese salad and a plate of the most deliciously creamy mozzarella, drizzled with olive oil and a freshly sliced pile of melt in the mouth proscuitto with some sourdough bread to mop it all up with…I’m happy to confirm that the hype is well earned!

If you haven’t visited St. Ali, the new coffee shop that’s opened on the junction of Clerkenwell Road and St John Street….you should! I popped in on the way to work earlier this week and have developed a little bit of a crush on it! Gorgeous, old,  battered communal tables, a green wall, a magic coffee roasting machine standing up on a pedestal for all to see, very friendly attentive service and above all…bloody good coffee!

I finally got myself down to Foxcroft and Ginger on Berwick Street. Having just eaten an amazing brunch I forced myself to resist the delicious looking sandwiches, which they have piled up on the counter. On our 2nd round of (really good) flat whites made with Monmouth cofee, we could resist no longer and shared a piece of banana bread. I would go as far as saying…maybe the best banana bread I’ve ever had. So deliciously light and moist, served warm and sprinkled with cinnamon and icing sugar. Next time I visit I’ll go with an empty stomach!
