When in the UK, everyone wants more pounds, but they typically mean the currency and not the stuff around their middles that jiggles and makes them resemble the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters. I, unfortunately, got rid of the former and added the latter. But it was delicious. Here is only part of my attempt to eat every peice of bread in Cambridge:
Good food, amazing coffee, really sweet tunes.
Set in a 14th century church, you can’t help but enjoy a long lunch here. I went back twice because I liked the ambiance, and they have killer macaroons (that are gluten free). Actually, I was able to get an entirely gluten-free meal here, which would be awesome if I were still avoiding wheat. So if you have dietary restrictions or love macaroons, come to Michaelhouse!
I also came here twice. Once by myself and once with friends for brunch. Both times were amazing and adorable.
The Earth’s Crust at the Cambridge Market:
This may be the most important one, because the bread man, Derek, loves the younger ladies and I’m trying to figure out how I can get him to marry me so he can fill me full of bread every day. Unfortunately, I think he’s more into my friend Joanna. Bummer (but good for Joanna?). Anyway, I visited Derek often (everyday) and tried his lovely wares. And so should you.
I tried the apricot pastry, which was amazing because it’s fresh apricot, not re-hydrated dehydrated apricot, and the Eccles Cake. Apparently, this is like a 300 year old recipe from outside of Manchester somewhere. An Eccles cake is a delicious puff pastries stuffed with currants and cinnamon… Good lord I love carbs. His muesli bars are also quite delicious, I wish I had stocked up on them for quick snacks during my travels.
That is all. Now that I have you all drooling you can take a break for a snack.
