Café Adagio, Croydon 

Soup and bread roll

My partner and I love a trip to Café Adagio on Lower Addiscombe Road here in Croydon. It is our very most local independent cafe and happens to be run by a really love guy. In fact my partner likes it so much he sometimes goes there without me to sit and read his book! There […]

Dum Dum, Boxpark Croydon

Nutella cronuts with sugar, chocolate and hazelnut topping

A little while ago I was sitting in Croydon’s Boxpark, a venue that has been sitting next to East Croydon station for just over a year now, and decided that enough was enough.

Village Bistro Cafe, Beckenham

Traditional English cooked breakfast near Beckenham Junction
