more



In food, as in fashion, I am guilty of what I might term selective obsessiveness. When I discover something new - something great - I can't stop thinking about it. New shoes will find themselves forever on my feet, come rain, come hail, come shine - for a few weeks, anyway. New sweaters will hardly get a wash as I shrug them on over anything, with everything, under all manner of jackets. So it is with clothes, and so it is with cafes. Or canteens, I should say.  Basically anywhere where the food is fresh and the tables long and the laughter loud. Well, I've found a gem, and it's a good'un, and if I had it my way I might never eat anywhere else again.  

Bread and Circus, 21 Fountain St Alexandria

This looks like a great place. No fuzz, unpretentious, great atmosphere and apparently even better food! I wish I took myself out to little places like this more often but where I live it's no as easy to come by a place like these. They definitely exist but not on a large scale.
Lovely post. I don't know what it is about food posts but I always love it when I come across them. I love it when people share little tidbits like that!
