The carrot cake from Strawberry Grove
If you love carrot cakes, you need to have this one at least once in your life. Strawberry Grove is this very small café and tea room in Lane End, but it offers really great food. The best is their carrot cake. The first time I went there, I had it to go with my tea as there was no scones left. The second time I visited Strawberry Grove, I wanted to go because of the carrot cake. As we didn't have time to take the dessert there after our lunch, I decided to simply buy a piece of cake to eat later at home. My wife said: "Oh that looks nice, you'll share it with me right?" I said: "This is too good to share, so I'll buy you your own piece." Which I did. Sometimes generosity and selfishness go hand in hand. And I think my reply deserves to be a great unknown line. I am not a particularly big fan of carrot cakes, but this one is that good. In fact, I can safely say that it is the best carrot cake I've had in my life.
