We have been going to our local Caffe Nero on Boscowen Street in Truro every Saturday morning for a while now. Unlike Costa the staff are a lot more friendly and will have a chat with you no matter how long the queues are.
But this branch of Caffe Nero is beginning to get a bit tired and is not very pram friendly – must consider this now we have baby girl! It’s hard to manoeuvre the pram between the tables without giving some poor old chap a knock spilling his coffee!
Anyway they have opened up a new branch just a few weeks ago a couple of streets away from the old one on Lemon Quay. We have asked and they are keeping both coffee shops open. The new one is right opposite a huge Primark that is due to open in October, a perfect spot for business it seems!
This new branch of Caffe Nero has been designed just amazingly. The decor inside has that perfect relaxing feel, and with a wide entrance door and a great layout of the tables and chairs inside it’s very pram or wheelchair friendly.
They have an enormous book shelf on the back wall filled with all sorts of wonderful books you can read whilst have a coffee or tea -with cake of course!
They have lots of bright sparkly hanging lights as you can tell from the photos!
I love the idea of this long table and chairs – great for larger families or groups of people out for coffee and cake. I must mention the floor tiles they have put in, they are very pretty and give it a homely feeling.
I just love all the different tables and chairs they have used. This one above is my favourite it’s very pretty and makes you feel quite posh sitting in it.
I have to end the review with showing you a picture of the great big scrumptious hot chocolate I always have when I visit Caffe Nero and a toasted panatone with jam – sorry I ate that before I realised I didn’t take a photo of it!
My only disappointment was that my husband came back to the table with the hot chocolate and it didn’t have any marshmallows on it, but I will let them off this time as they had a lovely new barista in training.
My husband had the pain au raisin and the latte with sprinkles.
Overall I would give the new Caffe Nero on Lemon Quay in Truro a 4 out of 5. I couldn’t give it a 5 out of 5 due to the missing marshmallows – sorry they mean a lot to a sleep deprived new mummy!
It gets a 5 out of 5 for the stunning interior design though. A very chilled out relaxing space- perfect for a wet Saturday!
Ever since I told my mum I was expecting last Summer she has been knitting little hats and boots for baby girl. Knowing that she was going to be born in the Winter gave her the perfect excuse to knit and crochet lots of hats, booties and blankets.
My mum uses any odd ends of wool lying about and turns them into cute hats. When my sisters, brother and I were little she used to knit us jumpers with all the Disney and cartoon characters on. Mine was Donald Duck! She has been asking me which Disney character I would like on a jumper for baby girl for next Winter. I am still deciding!
Hope you all have a lovely Sunday.
Baby girl and me.
Wishing you and your families a very Happy Easter, don’t eat too much chocolate!
This week my husband had a week off from work, so with baby girl in tow we made an effort to get out everyday this week while the weather was pretty good. In fact Wednesday when we went down to St Michael’s Mount was actually the cloudiest day. The rest of the week has been cold but sunny.
How has your week been?
Well this week has been a very busy one! It’s been fantastic to have my husband at home for the week to help me with baby girl. He’s been such a great help at night getting out to change her, little things like that mean the world to me at the moment as I am so tired! I don’t expect him to do it when he’s back to work.
On Monday it was my husbands birthday – his first as a daddy! I thoroughly enjoyed picking a card for him from baby girl! So we went to our local Brewers Fayre for lunch. It was the first time since we had baby girl that we have been out for lunch so I was feeling anxious as I’m exclusively breastfeeding and kept thinking what if she wants a feed? Well that is exactly what she wanted while we were out! They had a baby changing room there that was also the disabled toilet. I thought well that’s OK, so I changed baby girl and began to feed her.
Next thing I knew there was someone banging on the door and lifting the handle trying to get in! I said sorry there is someone in here, well I ended up with the most rudest reply! Basically saying that there is people out here needing the toilet and to hurry up! I got really upset and went back to where my husband was sitting and said I’m going to have to go to the car to finish feeding her as there was rude people knocking at the door. I was really upset and not a very pleasant experience for the first time out with her.
The rest of the week has been great! Since baby girl was born nearly 6 weeks ago I haven’t really left the house much, especially as I haven’t been able to drive so have been making the most of my husband being at home to not only get out everyday but to also catch up on a few jobs around the house and garden. This week was the first week I have been properly out in the garden since October when I nearly slipped down so haven’t risked it since then. The patio has been cleaned and I have started on making up my tubs and doing a bit of weeding.
So my week has been a really busy one.
