Catherine's Café in Wallingford
It is the weekend, a lovely sunny Saturday, maybe not quite the cold day you would need to fully appreciate afternoon tea and cakes, then again unless it's a heatwave you can't go wrong with tea and cakes on a lovely Saturday. As it is a weekend tradition on this blog, I am plugging today a place to enjoy food and drink. This time, it is Catherine's Café in Wallingford, the quintessential English town. It is called a café, but it is just as much a tea room. It serves honest, home make cakes and it is warm and friendly. One of the cakes was a bit dry, but then we went there near closing time, and anyway it was a lovely experience. There is something about small cafés in the corner of a street. If you know about feng shui, tell me what your hypothesis is. In any case, this is a pretty little independent café in a world that has too little of them.
