In the morning
When once we only saw 9am on the wrong side of a night out, now the promise of fluffy pancakes, Eggs Royale and flat whites somehow keeps us all in line. Oh, and a chorizo hash brown for when it all goes horribly wrong.

In a world of seemingly infinite creative resources, not to mention the entire internet full of information and inspiration, it’s always nice to see someone flourish with a limited range of tools and materials.
Oslo based illustrator Natalie Foss works with just coloured pencils and paper, but creates intricate, eye-catching portraits bursting with human emotion, unnatural colours, and fine detailed shading.
When it’s bitingly cold and you’re wearing two pairs of socks, it’s sometimes hard to see the beauty of the frosty landscape around you.
Let photographer Maroesjka Lavigne transport you to Iceland, where she spent 4 months travelling alone to capture the stark and stunning photographs that make up her series ‘Island’.
Get lost in her snow storms, windswept neighbourhoods, crashing coastal waves and feel hungry when you see some crisp looking fresh shellfish being washed in a whiter than white sink.
Somewhere between hunting lodge and horsebox, our private dining room is tantamount to a country escape. Secluded from hubbub of the Cafe but for a couple of grazing horses, the space seats up to 14 for meetings, meals, parties and whatever you might not like to share with everyone else.
Pottery is back. It’s even on TV. However, if elegant, smooth and faultless vases don’t tickle your pickle – meet Amy Worrall.
Amy does weird and wonderful things with clay. She takes quite specific inspiration from sunburnt brits abroad on the Costa del Sol, and uses the forms she creates as canvasses.
She makes everything from cat shaped biscuit jars with removable heads to plant pots in the shape of, er, breasts, lots of breasts.
At the sharing table
WHO DID YOU MEET?
Once upon a time, we chatted to strangers, brought jams to neighbours in times of plenty and said hello to passersby. We hear it still happens up North.
We also hope one might choose to shoot the breeze with fellow diners at the sharing table. Maybe you might debate current affairs; maybe you share a secret haunt; maybe you might just pass the pepper.
DAILY CAKE QUOTIENT
Everyday, our kitchen brings us a jar of cookies. Or sometimes a pretty little cake stand with a banana loaf. Macaroons. Meringues. Depends how they’re feeling. But everyday, regardless, there is a new batch of home made treats to eye up on your way in and have with a cup of tea.
