Aside from all those good resolutions for the sake of being a better person (more on that later this month), one of them is to visit more cafes. Especially local ones that can’t really be found anywhere else. It seems a bit pricier than my usual Tesco’s £3 meal deal (that I’ll never give up, ever) but it’s probably money better spent, compared to, say, makeup.
But yeah, I’ve been harbouring a longing to be a coffee shop hipster for a long while but never mustered up the willpower to go. So on a day out with my siblings before the holiday feeling wore off, I suggested we all go to one together. The original cafe of choice was Damascena but it looked sort of busy? Although later I found out that they sort of have more space than what I saw… One other day, okay?
So we headed around the corner and down the road to Javalounge. It has a really warm atmosphere with the lights and decor. I wanted to sit at one of the enticing window booths but it seemed some filming was happening there and the free booth was within shot… maybe next time!
My brother and I ordered the special coffee eggnog. I’m not sure what was eggnog about it, as I’ve never tried it but it was nice and really hit the spot. My sister picked the banana milkshake, which was also pretty fabulous if you’re not a coffee drinker. The food was okay. It was filling and I did enjoy it, still. If I ordered again I’d probably go for my sister’s mozzarella wrap. The coffee more than made up for it though.
(We were too full to buy a dessert.) Oh, and they have free wifi. Perfect for sitting at the table on our phones and just chilling for half an hour.
Until next time,
