“When in doubt, drink coffee.”
That’s a quote from… nowhere. I literally just made that up. I might be high on caffeine, though the last cup of coffee I had was yesterday. Hmm… What did they put in that cup?
I don’t know why I’ve been drinking so much coffee, much more than my usual two cups a year anyways. It’s as though some weird floodgate was open after my return from Melbourne. I’m still unsure as to how healthy it is, but when in doubt… oh, forget it.
Edwin and I had a lovely post-swim meal at LEX Coffee some months back. Yes, I’m finally writing about it. If I keep this up, I might be able to catch up sometime this year.
High-ceiling, comfortable seats, pretty lighting, all setting the scene for Instagram.
All day brunch! Poached eggs with smoked salmon, parma ham, and mixed greens. I particularly liked the citrus bits (orange and grapefruit) in the salad – refreshing!
Spaghetti with prawns. Unfortunately the garlic was burnt and a bit bitter.
Orange chocolate affogato, and focaccia in the background. I have completely forgotten what the sandwich fillings were, so let’s ignore the bread and focus on the affogato. It was amazing. The espresso, vanilla ice-cream, and chocolate syrup (which hardened when cooled) went together perfectly. I couldn’t see any orange bits or syrup or whatnot, but I could smell it and it was heavenly. I would come back just for this alone.
Mango tea, served in a cute little pot.
And that wraps up the first of many dining posts for the year! There’ll be other content, bien sûr, such as travel logs, opinion pieces, and more Polyvore creations. I’m really excited about what’s coming up soon, so watch this space!
