Either that or watch too much Grand Designs.
A friend took me for lunch at BBM today. I had a tea which was perfectly fine but he had an espresso which he said tasted stale. I had some kind of brioche with vegetables and goats cheese, which was nice but it left me feeling very hungry, I think it's fair to say that if you've paid a fiver for lunch you shouldn't leave hungrier than you went in.
We originally sat down in the sun lounge but had to move as my head started burning through my parting. The front of the shop was nice and cool though.
@therattle: Tapped and Packed > Milk Bar.
And probably a quarter of a mile closer to Stroud Green.
Google Green lanes and any godfather related term you want and youll start to work it out
The veggie breakfast is ample.
Been to a few different places for breakfast/lunch this week, jacket potatoes in Sunshine cafe are huge and I had one with a very tasty Bolognese and salad the other day, which cost about £3. The staff in there are lovely and you can listen in on a lot of the local gossip. My favourite seat is by the window but it can get a bit hot when it's sunny. Coffee is very good too, they do proper coffee not just instant, which they make very well.
Had a latte and pain au chocolat in Dream River yesterday, I got a large latte for £2 which came in a huge cup, it was very nice. The girls in there are very friendly too, and they have free wifi which seems to be very popular. It's a bit shaded on that side of the street but nice if you want to cool down and get out of the sun.
Does anyone know if the MIND cafe's still doing the £4 lunch on a Friday at the community centre? Haven't been for months and nobody's posted on here for a while.
Dream River do lovely smoothies.
Nice write-up in Time Out
If you are a bit picky about it (as I am) and want a decent cup of coffee, try Coffee Circus on Crouch Hill.
and what about Frank Dobson and his council house
This is an interesting background on Bob.
Reading it brings back memories of afternoon locks in on Friday afternoons at the Price of Wales Feathers in Warren St drinking with Jimmy Nap and Mick McGahey.
He fibs a bit about using Trains to get around the UK, I sat behind him once on flight to Dundee. He must have been going to Perth to the Stagecoach HQ. He sat in business class I was in economy all there was between the class was small curtain and he got glass of orange juice. He also had on this really bad taste shiny grey suite.
