Yup, that’s my last Starbucks, breakfast muffin and WIFI time for a week or so. I’m off to the island, so prepare yourself for photos of flowers, boats, waves and doggies. Yup, cute stuff.

My version of the coffee shop’s famous Fall / Winter offering – jumbo, spicy pumpkin muffins (with a secret, very Starbucks, ingredient) stuffed with cubes of cream cheese and crowned with pumpkin seeds. They taste awesome – the only problem was that my client wanted cream cheese frosting in the centre, not just cream cheese. Hey, I’ve never eaten a Starbucks muffin, how would I know??

A friend of Mum’s gave Mum some shelled walnuts that Mum wouldn’t use, so I did the obvious thing with them, augmented with a few hazelnuts – coffee and nut muffins. Yum, TISSM…

The Café Strand in Kivik has one of the best chocolate cakes I have ever tasted so I made sure to make a visit during my brief stay. Rich, sweet and buttery, it goes great with a cup of coffee!

These were served on the first day of Eid: tray full of brownie madeleines, brownie in a cup, layer cake [kek lapis], and my favs on the top layer – Kisses, Toblerone and Crunch chocolates :)

Dessert: Jean Georges Warm Chocolate Cake

Image by ulterior epicure
This chocolate cake made Jean Georges famous – well, he was famous, this just made increased his esteem in the culinary world. This cake had a molten soft chocolate interior. Essentially, a dream in a little cup form.

The cake is not to be outdone by the vanilla bean ice cream on cacao crumbles. You know I"m a sucker for iced treats – so any icy form of cream is sure way to please me. The best combo, of course, is cold ice cream with warm chocolate cake.

You can see a better lit version of this cake here.

Coffee Cake and Wifi

I got my lovely coffee, my yummy cake and a good wifi signal at Loudon’s, one of the recently opened cafes at Fountainbridge, behind Tollcross. Been meaning to try it for a few weeks and some friends recommended it, pass it often on the way home from work. Nipped in on day off, really nice and staff were lovely too, nice space to relax. Just a shame it closes at 6, so most nights it’s no use to me for a quick java on the way home from work (if only it was 7 I could get a coffee and pause my walk home). But still a nice spot for a break on a day off and to be fair I’d guess their main business will come from surrounding offices during the day (although being so central surely they’d get folks on the way home from work too?)

I tried a similar shot in colour but it just didn’t look right, the B&W was better. Loudon’s is a much recommended spot for good coffee, tea, cake and wifi, big plate windows let in a lot of natural light even on overcast winter days, quite popular spot to do some writing too.
