Dishoom

Before our latest trip to London, a few people recommended Dishoom to me and then I also spotted that they were listed in a top ten list of places to eat breakfast in London. So, the decision was made and I booked us in to the Dishoom in Shoreditch, near our hotel. What a fantastic place it is! Dishoom is styled on the Irani cafes found in Bombay and it oozes...

Catch and Sea

We had the fantastic opportunity on Saturday morning to go on the maiden Catch and Sea trip with Causeway Coast Foodie Tours.   Our morning started very early, we met at 6.15am at the Causeway Lass in Portrush Harbour and we were taken out towards the Skerries and Dunluce Castle in time for sunrise. That experience in itself was worth the cost of the trip but it got better and better....

Kiosk, York

I've been walking past Kiosk for a couple of months, every time when they are closed, intrigued.  I love food and I love ceramics so the window display and interior of Kiosk kept calling me in. Kiosk is another recent addition to Fossgate which has a growing collection of exciting and independent places to eat and drink. Finally I found a day when I was free and they were open...

Laynes Espresso

Laynes espresso is somewhere we visit anytime we go to Leeds.  Situated just round the corner from the train station, it's a great place to have coffee. Their regular espresso blend is Square Mile Red Brick and the coffee is always spot on.  Usually we treat ourselves to one of their cakes too.  We have been known to pop in our way back to the station and get cakes to...

The Barn Bistro at Burniston (again!) 

I've written about the Barn before and how much I like it.  This time we decided to go for breakfast before a long walk along the Cleveland Way. We were not disappointed!  I had Hartlepool smoked haddock with poached eggs, hollaindaise sauce and fried sliced potatoes. The haddock was really superb and the hollandaise sauce really well made. Mr Frivolitea had omelette Arnold Bennett with Hartlepool smoked haddock. Really  light...

Babushka

Babushka is exactly the sort of place you want to while away a few hours on a Saturday or on holiday. A wonderful host (George's love of coffee and Babushka is infectious) Fantastic coffee, a small but perfectly formed menu and one of the best views you could ever wish for of the beach and the sea.  Even on a bad day the view is wonderful. There isn't really much...

The Haven cafe, Edinburgh

On our latest trip to Edinburgh we decided to find somewhere for breakfast near where we were staying in Leith. A quick ask of Twitter and Brew and Brownie had found The Haven Cafe for us.   It's a great little place, full of quirky vintage items and lots of locals. Always a good sign.    Mr Frivolitea had the full breakfast and I had sausage, tattie scone ( which...

Brew and Brownie

I love this place. Everything about it. Right down to the hipster lighting ( light bulbs in jam jars ) You should go. Really you should. You might have to queue but that's ok, it's worth it. We went for breakfast today and boy was it good. I had the pancake stack with fruit compote, yoghurt and honey. Other options include salted caramel and banana. The pancakes are light and...

Homeground

We stumbled across Homeground as we walked through Windermere and I am so glad we did. Homeground has been open 3 months and Windermere is definitely the richer for it.  There is fantastic coffee for a start (we couldn't visit without having 2 flat whites)..   Then there are the doughnuts... made by the Homeground team and wonderful.  We had malteser cream and apple and cinnamon doughnuts.       Then there...
