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.
Delicious lunch at Massaro’s, Regent Street, Cambridge…ciabatta filled with fennel salami, fresh tomato, rocket and chunky homemade basil pesto!
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!
