Menu - March 22nd

Hello all, we went to the fabulous Columbia Road market on Sunday and it was amazing (and reassuring) to see all the spring flowers on sale down there. We love Columbia road and though it gets packed from 10 am onwards, it's great to get there either at the start or at the end of the day. Finish that off with a breakfast baguette and flat white at the excellent Taste of Bitter Love on Hackney road and the day is sorted. Sundays? Done.

Lamingtons are an Australia/New Zealand traditional cake. Perfect in the afternoon with a pot of tea or perhaps a latte, they are two pieces of sponge, covered in chocolate, or maybe raspberry jelly crystals and then coated with coconut. Two pieces are then sandwiched together with cream in the middle. We make them fresh every day, so limited amounts available. Get them while you can.
