Week beginning October 13th - Claires' Long Holiday

As I mentioned in last weeks blog winter has arrived and we're now required to cover our limbs in fleecy materials. Though this can be depressing we find comfort in cozy objects such as the sofa, electric mattress covers, bubble baths and my personal favourite... soup. Last week customers asked if we had broken out the soup kettle yet? Almost but not quite, this week you'll be pleased to know its back! During the mornings we will be serving our vegan porridge with an array of condiments. Then at lunch the kettle will be replaced with soup and served with our very own bread fresh from the oven. 

This week also marks the start of manager Claire's well deserved 4 month holiday, she will be managing the floor Monday and Tuesday and has made a request on Kaffeine's first soup for 2014/15, her selection is my action packed deluxe Chicken and Sweet corn soup, so chunky you need a fork to eat it.  

However if soup is not your thing we will be serving mini French pumpkins which have been hollowed and stuffed with layers of crème fraîche, stale bread, Dijon, thyme and gruyere. All melty and warm with a touch of dairy naughtiness. The stuffed French miniature pumpkins will be replacing our tart, they're so Parisian you'll think you've experienced the Moulin Rouge, street performing mimes and Ladurée in one sitting. 

So come get cosy with the staff and fellow customers this week and if you know Claire wish her a Bon voyage.
