Yesterday afternoon I thought I would pop into Word of Mouth Café, somewhere I have passed by many, many times, but never ventured in ……
I have to admit, I did linger for quite a while at the said cake counter, because when it comes to choosing cake I can’t be hurried. I like to take my time with important decisions.
In the end I opted for the date,oat and raspberry slice. It was almost too wonderful for words. I would describe it as a slice of pure comfort, moist and rich, I ate it very, very slowly so as to savour all its loveliness in its entirety.
This is definitely a place to bring Hugh when he pays a State Visit, as it specializes in food for allergy sufferers, vegans, vegetarians as well us meat eaters, and as far as I could see, there wasn’t a quiche in sight, which would please Hugh immensley …. as he would say “Not all vegitareans eat quiche, darling!”And I know that Darrell and Nigel, would always be up for a “Guest Sausage Roll”
There were books all around the café and after a little mooching I discovered that they have an Honesty Book Shop where you can borrow a book and bring it back, swap one of your books for one of theirs or just buy one, with all the money received being sent to Uganda to help pay for a young boys school fees. There were a couple of titles I quite fancied, so that’s a no brainer.
The café is very homely and cosy, but sadly it’s not really big enough for us to wheel in a double buggy when we are on Baby Patrol, however in the warmer weather it would be a most excellent spot for sitting outside ……… and perhaps …… do a little people watching!http://www.wordofmouthcafe.co.uk/
