It's surprising how much cream you can get from a cat, isn't it?

Tescos often have a half decent cafe
Marks and Sparks likewise
if I am going off someplace I check google maps to see whats about
garden centres are another one that have nice little cafes as well
in my town the two small old fashioned cafes have closed to allow the property developers to make even more money ( cant stand them) and one of the two decent ones in the middle of town has gone upmarket and yuppified

Yuppie...?

Now there's a word I've not used/heard for 30 years!

This forum is endlessly nostalgic.

What's your favourite tea supplier?
Assam only, loose leaf of course. Sometimes from Waitrose (Currently on special offer) and sometimes Tesco. We usually mix both together.

I find some of the best High Street teas are to be bought in France!

If the French can be bothered they brew some glorious tea. I take every opportunity to drink in their Salons du Thé - which invariably offer a first class selection of teas with the bonus of fabulous cakes.


Tony
Now in all my trips to France, I have never had what I would call a decent cup of tea. I take UK tea with me. They don't even understand that you need boiling water.
Yes you can now get English tea bags there, but they are the special export weak version sold at a high price.LOL

A tip for travellers, in Italy you sometimes come across baristas calling a Cappuccino by its short-name form, "cappuccio". Pronounced " Ka-pooch-O" with emphasis on the u (ooo).

Fortunately I had read about this trending name a few weeks prior to it being used on me in Italy.

The hazards of foreign travel !

Tony

In Italy it’s not done to drink cappuccino after 11am.

It's tough to see how removing a single 'n' from a 10 letter word, reducing it to a 9 letter word, makes it a 'short name form' (o;

Love coffee, have a Tassimo machine at home so don’t drink it out often, but try to use independent coffee shops. Less Americanised. Also, I drink plain black coffee, as god intended, so that simplifies things.

For my coffee, and this fact still astounds me... I go to the local railway station.  Best cup of coffee for miles around.

And. You'll want to be sitting down for this:   they do really good sandwiches.

And you can take as long as you like to enjoy them due to the decrepitude of the 'service'. So win, win, win really then.

Actually, not. Chiltern line. They run a train service, apparently unlike those other outfits, and endeavour to do so efficiently, and politely.  I know - startling, isn't it? It's really just like an old-fashioned local line.

As far as I know, they are one of the few lines that didn't shut everything down in advance of a snowfall, a couple of weeks back. And they even managed, somehow, to deal with the fact that the snow was also falling on the station platforms, which was the excuse for closing Paddington. 

I'm sure they have their disruptions, but compared to what I hear about other lines, it's as nothing.

I drink coffee only black so not an issue. In Italy the cappuccinos I've seen are not like British ones - in Italy they're small: espresso with a layer of froth. Not the foamy things sold here. And no chocolate on top. Very civilised.
