Thanks to a couple of really nice PMs the cafe is reopening until and including Xmas.

For the regulars

The kitten bees are inside for winter, please watch out for them getting stuck in jam.

F and F seem to be slightly more than friends.

The water feature has become an ice rink.

To anyone new:

This virtual cafe is a covid free zone. There are a number of seats / sofas / wing back chairs.

It opened in the first lockdown, it is an escape from isolating, home ed, mask wearing. It is a happy place, it is the opposite of AIBU.

A different breakfast is served every day and sometime packing up to take to work.

Florence is a French pastry chef, Fernando is a cocktail waiter.

Dogs and children are welcome. Babies can be handed over to regulars to give you a break and we also have cots for them to sleep.

Outside is a cat amusement area with catnip bush and toys.

Kitten bees are kittens the size of bees with wings and their tails can transform into tiny umbrellas.

I’d bring my cat in for cuddles but she’s a hunter.

Morning all.

Well to get us back in to the swing of things Fernando has a tray of bucks fizz ready and is manning the coffee machine.

Florence has been busy making yummy pastries.

I've fired up the plancher for full English.

@MinnieMountain I'll throw some sausage pices in the garden so you cat can hunt wild sausage.

Coffee and delicious pastries for me please. Buck’s Fizz is probably not for a work day.

Thanks @sashh. She’ll enjoy that when she gets off my lap.

Morning Minnie and Mog.

Enjoy the pastries, @mogloveseggs full English for you?

Ooh definitely thanks!

@NoGravyForYou talk of snow here Thursday/Friday! It was a bloody harsh frost this morning so I wouldn't be surprised

Dancingtomusic Tue 01-Dec-20 22:36:42

Hiiii Sashh! I missed your cafe!

Nomnomarrgh Tue 01-Dec-20 23:31:32

Hi, Buck’s fizz for me. Is there a table I can sit at with my newspaper?

mogloveseggs Wed 02-Dec-20 05:55:14

Not as cold today thank goodness
Mind if I put the kettle on sashh?

sashh Wed 02-Dec-20 06:02:05

Morning all.

It seems a little colder this morning so I made porridge. Florence has baked some fresh baguettes and while we were closed some lovely apricot jam.

@Nomnomarrgh for paper reading I recommend the wing back chairs by the fire.

@mogloveseggs no problem with the kettle but Fernando is itching to use the posh coffee machine.

I'll let him get on with it then grin and wait for a delicious latte
Please can I have porridge with apple and cinnamon?
How are you this morning?

Dancingtomusic Wed 02-Dec-20 06:11:03

Morning everyone, I thought it was extra cold this morning as my house feels cold.

Porridge will definately warm me up. Good idea Sashh.

NewtoHolland Wed 02-Dec-20 06:16:07

You had me at kitten bees!
I think I will lounge on a sofa this morning and enjoy my porridge under a comfy throw.
Fernando, a large latte with oat milk and vanilla and almond syrup please 😊

mogloveseggs Wed 02-Dec-20 06:43:00

I'm on my own thinking it's warmer grin
We had a harsh frost yesterday and none today. Snow tomorrow though apparently.

sashh Wed 02-Dec-20 07:00:59

Does anyone want a jaffle?

It's an Australian thing, free jaffle to anyone who knows what it is.

Morning all

I’m another keen customer of Fernando’s. A white americano please.

The apricot jam sounds very tasty, especially when snuggled up in a big chair.

We have had a frost but it seems warmer today too.

mogloveseggs Wed 02-Dec-20 07:10:52

I have no idea @sashh

MinnieMountain Wed 02-Dec-20 07:16:50

Does looking it up count @sashh? grin

Frownette Wed 02-Dec-20 07:29:07

I'm another one who wants fernando.

Strong coffee with triple shots of brandy please.

Bloody hell last week was stressful.
