Thank you so much for following me on Babyhedgehogs Blog for the past few years. BHH was fun, but I’m a little bit more grown up now (kinda), and I think it’s time I make that change more evident. So…I am moving to a new blog. The content will be the same, but it will now be under THREE HOUR BRUNCH FRIEND. Rather than deleting BHH or export my old content to Three Hour Brunch Friend, I’m going to leave BHH as an archive of sorts.
I’ve just posted a very easy recipe for profiteroles (aka cream puffs). There will be more recipes and more travel photos — did I mention I went to Scotland, Italy, and Iceland? It’s all gonna be on THREE HOUR BRUNCH FRIEND. :)
Visiting the British Museum is an overwhelming experience in and out of itself. At some point before or after your visit, you will most definitely need some caffeine. Avoid the mediocre museum stuff and head outside. Here’s my top 3 recommendations for Bloomsbury.
Store Street Espresso
40 Store Street | Website
A mere 5 minutes away from the British Museum, Store Street Espresso exudes New York coolness and delivers the best cappuccino I’ve had in London thus far. Their pastries can be hit or miss; I’ve had some fantastic blondies from them, but subpar croissants and muffins.
Bloomsbury Coffee House
20 Tavistock Place | Website
A weekly joint for my classmates and me, on account of the student discount and the splendid homemade baked goods. There are quaintly mismatched furniture and plates and a lovely window herb garden that adds to the homeliness. The pumpkin pie is a must, if seen, grab it fast.
TAP Coffee, No. 114
114 Tottenham Court Road | Website
TAP Coffee is an indie chain with three locations all within a 15-20 minutes walk of each other. They roast their own beans and make very good sandwiches. The interior is pretty sleek. (For those hailing from Toronto, TAP Coffee is the equivalent to Dark Horse Espresso Bar.)
It finally looks like winter over here! And nothing feels quite as good as salvaging enough rolled oats, cereal, and instant oatmeal to make a porridge to go with the morning. Topped with dried cranberries, raisins, and walnuts, a drizzle of orange blossom honey. Sweet, yet, seemingly healthy and high in fibre, right?
Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
