Long hiatus

In Uncategorized on November 28, 2010 at 10:02 pm

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted anything on here and it’s mainly due to me being away for one month and just catching up on things/life in general.  I’ve also been super busy with Thanksgiving preparation and now that Christmas is coming up I’m sure I’ll have limited time too.  However, I hope to visit some new places to keep this site updated!  Hope you’re all having a wonderful season so far.  – B.

Le Pain Quotidien ~ Covent Garden

In Cafes & bakeries, Restaurants on September 24, 2010 at 8:31 pm

If you’re in Covent Garden and are looking for a nice place to have a meal or just a pastry and coffee while you take a break, then I suggest stopping in Le Pain Quotidien.  If you’re a Londoner you know how busy Covent Garden can be and we all know that it’s not the most kid friendly area either.  We stopped in the other day and the staff was extremely pleasant and attentive.  There are two floors which means there is ample space to sit down and they also have an outside seating area.  Quotidien is located in the central, market area on the main floor.  Their lemon tart is my favorite, a must have if you’re in the mood for a treat!

The Duke’s Head

The Duke’s Head in Putney is just a few minutes from Putney High Street, making it very easy to walk to from Putney Bridge tube, Putney (overground) train and East Putney tube stations.  It’s a lovely pub with a really nice view of the river so I suggest to try to get a table nearest the window when making a reservation (which I highly recommend doing).  They have a really nice selection of starters, mains and desserts as well as a nice choice of foods like burgers and ribeye steak prepared on the grill.  If you’d like to take a stroll after your meal, head toward Putney Bridge and cross over to Bishop’s Park.
