Russell-ing up some good grub

Saturday, December 15th, 2007

Despite a distinct lack of Christmas attire, seasonal cheer was in good evidence from all attendees which more than made up for it. In addition to our good turn out, we also had the pleasure of an excellent breakfast. Although by no means the cheapest breakfast we’ve had, the food was absolutely top notch. Generous portions were provided and there was no problem when I asked for the beans in my breakfast to be replaced with a portion of chips – in fact, I was rewarded with such a mountain of chips that I could probably have saved half for a reasonably substantial lunch!

While the sausage was not up to the standards of the last breakfast it was by no means unpleasant, and the bacon and mushrooms were excellent indeed. The egg was fair, although slightly cold. Rounding the meal off, the coffee was excellent – but was unfortunately not included in the price of breakfast, which is against all tradition and commonly observed caff manners. But I’ll forgive it this time. Partly because the view whilst demolishing the platter is so much better than anywhere else we’ve been.

Breakfast at Russell Square Cafe

Russell Square

A Winter’s Breakfast

Wednesday, December 5th, 2007

We will be performing this lesser known work of the great bard at the Russell Square Cafe, which is located, amazingly enough, in Russell Square. Yes, in the actual square. You can’t really miss it, it’s the big glass fronted thing that looks like a restaurant, thus distinguishing it from the tall wooden things that look like trees. Those are trees. Here’s a picture to help you out.

Don’t be fooled by all the garden furniture, there’s plenty of seating space in the nice warm interior, so we won’t have to freeze. The nearest tube station is … wait for it … Russell Square. Here’s a map though, if you are really struggling. If my memory serves correctly, it’s in the corner of the square nearest to Thorn Street.  Usual timings apply, we’ll be there from 7:30am, until about 9ish.  Join us at any point – all are welcome.

Bonus points will be awarded to those who arrive in Christmas attire!
