LONDON COFFEES GOING DOWN
(the funniest scene, the kid and the smooching couple --photo by D-- + the most fabulous tea cozy I've ever seen ... It's the green embroidered hat-like object)
(delicious, malty, chocolatey coffees we enjoyed)
We stopped for a wonderful coffee at Nude Espresso, around our jaunt to the Brick Lane area. I had the 'flat white' which I guess is all the rage in Australia, now London . . . No doubt Portland will be on the caffeinated heels of our forefathers. It is essentially a stronger version of a latte. Same double shot of espresso, less milk. As a lover of all coffees -- I dabble in every variation depending on my mood-- this one was new and very nice indeed! Strong and bold, yet still creamy. I will keep my ears and eyes open for it when we get back state-side.
The small, stylish shops around and on Cheshire St were gorgeous -- so well curated and displayed. It was like walking into art galleries, one right next door to the next. Good thing we had not a pound on us after our street-food lunch, because we were sorely tempted.
