Review: City Bakery, NYC

Oh SWEET MOTHER. This hot chocolate is heaven on earth. This is what all hot chocolates should aspire to be. I have found my one true love and it comes in a little blue takeaway cup. My first City Bakery hot chocolate was on an unusually sunny February New York day when we decided to […]

Review: Este, Bristol

Look how PRETTY. A couple of weeks ago a friend and I got trapped by the rain in Este, on the way home from a walk. It was a delightful place to get trapped, filled with lovely artwork and super cheery staff. We ended up having supremely healthy veggie bowls, filled with delicious green things […]

Review: Magnolia Bakery, New York

Loads of reviews coming up from my recent trip to NYC, with some absolutely winners, but lets start with the bad. Magnolia Bakery, known for its incredible cupcakes, seemed like a great place to grab a coffee/chocolate on the way to the theatre. It was slightly terrifying inside, with tourists trying to choose the best […]

Review: The Watershed, Bristol

The Watershed in Bristol is a brilliant arts centre which specialises in film culture and digital media. Since moving to Bristol we’ve been to the Watershed so many times to catch a film but never made it to the attached cafe before. I wanted a hot chocolate (when don’t I want a hot chocolate?!) and Bruno wanted […]

Review: Cafe Nero

I’m not just reviewing plain hot chocolate today. I’m reviewing the Hot Chocolate Milano by Cafe Nero. This is the high street mother of all sweet and thick hot chocolates.

Review: Society Cafe, Bath

On Sunday my mum and I finally went to explore Bath. I’ve never been before, which is unbelievable with my love of all things Jane Austen and Georgian. It was COLD. After exploring the amazing Roman Baths (I fully recommend a visit to ‘take the waters’) and a turn around the Christmas market there was […]

Review: Harts Bakery, Bristol

This was an ultimate indulgence breakfast treat after all the trains out of Bristol were cancelled and our Saturday plans were ruined (dramatic much?). We were trying to get out to the Wiltshire countryside to meet my sister and nephews but there was some terrible signal failure, so we headed down below the station arches […]

Review: The Crafty Fox, Bristol

Tonight was celebration hot chocolate time. I passed my PRINCE2 project management foundation course #bossbitch so treated myself to a tasty drink on the way home. It’s also freeeezing in Bristol at the moment and my hour long walk requires something warm to keep me going. I popped into The Crafty Fox in the Arcade […]
