Crushed Bean, Croydon

Breakfast, cheesecake and tea from Crushed Bean

There was a lot of talk of wibbly wobbly cheesecake, otherwise known as Japanese cheesecake, amongst our group of friends in advance of a trip to Crushed Bean in Croydon actually happening. They only tend to make it on a Saturday and we heard it tends to sell out super early but we were not […]

Chicago Rib Shack, Boxpark Croydon

Dirty fries and sticky ribs from Chicago Rib Shack

There are so many reasons that I love my friends but one of them has to be that they are totally willing to entertain going to different places to eat and accepting I will whack my camera out as soon as food arrives. So when Chicago Rib Shack opened up in Boxpark, Croydon and they […]

The Big Eat, Croydon

Croydon restaurant The Big Eat

On the 27th February we made that happen and battled the snow, went on the epically long overground to take a […]

Tea and cake is pretty much always a winner in my books. It is even more of a winner when the cafe is a quiet place, the prices are decent, the portions are generous and the staff have a smile on their face. That in short is why I love Molicero a Portuguese cafe on […]

Café Adagio, Croydon 

Soup and bread roll

The Ludoquist, Croydon

Very cheesy pizza in Croydon

I was really excited about The Ludoquist opening in Croydon. I had seen about it several months before, when they launched their Kickstarter, and was looking forward to them opening up and us having a board game cafe much closer than the one in Bromley. At present it seems to be taking a more family-friendly […]
