Staying there for one night, means in my calculation: Two times breakfast is possible! Well, that’s what we did. The always friendly hubby was kind enough, not to ask questions, why we have to go especially to this place, etc etc and were just helpful to find it! The first morning we went by bus to the “Tina we salute you” cafe in Dalston. The food was great, (nice idea to poach the eggs with a plastic bag), nice staff, we left quite satisfied. However, I am not sure if I really need to go back there again next time?! It is not that special to me.
Our highlight on the next breakfast was “Lantana”. Underground station is Goodge Street. and this is like heaven there, well, for me! mixed guests, all ages and kinds, great food, great staff, great athmosphere, so relaxed…,fantastic place! if you go to London. go there, it will make you happy! I can recommend the banana bread, or, no, maybe more the french toast, or the scrambled eggs, or….?! I like everything!!
Afterwards I wanted to check out the Columbia Road, not for the flower market, bec it was saturday, no just for the shops there. I love it! I want to life there. It was great. All those tiny, colourful shops! with handmade things (j&b the shop), the best shop with fabrics i have ever seen (beyond fabrics), vintage heaven with cakehole cafe, just to mention a few of them!, every shop has their own bench standing on the street, so the hubby was very pleased to get a break every 20 minutes when I changed shops. columbia street, we will be coming back soon! promised!
