Friday indulgence

{See Godzilla? Hint: It's atop a light} 
Small World cafe (in fun "Lomo effect") roasts its own coffee, hosts art shows and serves addictive chocolate chip cookies.

Cafe-ish news: 60 years ago this week, tea rationing ended in Britain - enjoy a cuppa!

Anywhere that roasts its own coffee and serves cakes is my kind of place.
Rationing finally only came to an end the year before I was born. I well recall a tin of dried egg in the pantry when I was a boy, I think mother could not fave it once the ration ended, also by then we kept a few chickens.

OMG those raisin nut rolls look divine Lulu, and freshly roasted coffee..you realize it's almost midnight in Perth..what are you doing to me haha! p.s. yup I spotted that pesky wee monster.

Ah, there's Big G. Hiding from Roland Emmerich, who wants to make a sequel.

Those treats in the first pic look to die for...

Fresh roasted coffee and good cake are a magic combo (I admit, I envy you your National Trust cakes!) I recall a program about British food in WWII and how some children reportedly got so used to dried eggs they preferred them over the real deal - seems that was, luckily, not the case for you/your family!

PerthDailyPhoto - no more midnight food shots, I promise! ;-) We've blamed our post-UK move weight gain on this place, too many temptations (Godzilla notwithstanding:)

William - must make sure to keep Godzilla hidden from that sequel, haha! Those rolls are pretty good - my real weakness is those choc chip cookies!:)

As I am 'enjoying my cuppa' soon to be followed by a glass on wine :), but I feel a tad hungry. Maybe I'll skip the wine and have another cuppa and a cake, please! Super shots in a very nice website!!!!!!!!! (Maybe 'skip' should be replaced with 'delay':)). (Thanks for your comments re background. I think you have got it right. The focus is on your photos.)

LONDONLULU said...

Mmmm, glass of wine on a lovely Friday, perfect end of week repast:) I'd happily take cake anytime too. (Thanks for the site design encouragement - one of these days I'll get around to a 'makeover':))

I'm so glad I have never had my tea (or coffee) rationed. I love the Lomo effect.

Randy said...

Do they have them without raisins?

EG CameraGirl said...

Ha! I just checked in to see you still have this up and now I am very, very hungry! You are such a tease. :))

Ha, with the smell of freshly roasted coffee and all those delicious goodies in the counter, you expect someone to look up and notice godzilla?!

And one cup of coffee, please;o)

Adele said...

Yum!! I also like the lomo effect. Will have to try it out. After I have a baked good of some sort (with raisins!).

LONDONLULU said...

EG - lol, I promise, no more midnight photos from here on out (unless I get a midnight snack craving:)) Thank goodness no rationing of tea or coffee these days.

Randy - I think they do! I've seen some non-fruit versions.

Hamilton - haha, true true, poor Godzilla...ignored in favor of fresh-roasted coffee and treats!

Mildred - I find it hard to resist places like this myself:)

Adele - I use Picasa and suddenly realized there was a bunch of funky effects hiding behind a tab. Have fun experimenting!:)

Lynette said...

I like your Lomo effect on the top photo of those swell looking baked goods. The second image did not load, so I can't see it.

Thanks for visiting Portland Oregon Daily Photo.
