Cowbridge afternoon

I spent Thursday afternoon in Cowbridge, a lovely little town of South Wales, a few miles from Cardiff. Cowbridge is full of Lovely shops, Charity shops and boutiques and it’s a pleasure to wander in them. As it was a pleasure (by a more clement weather some times ago) to visit the ruins of the castle and the gardens… cowbridge We went for tea in an old-fashioned, traditional bakery on the Main Street, cute in the kind of way my grandmother loves to visit. All traditional bread, cakes (bread puddings, custard slices, custard tarts, Welsh cakes…) Then, we do some scouting in the shop, seing some adorable cuddling toys (why Teddies would only be for children 😉 ), clothes, jewels, cups…. and ended in the sweets shop (sane remarks as previous!). I resisted temptation of shopping… I surely will not next time. Then, it was tea time, and we stopped at the Arboreal, a lovely place for eating some bites… Nice deco, friendly service, Welsh coffeee and delicious pizza…

pizza arboreal

precisely, this pizza : tomatoes, eggs, parma ham and water cress.

This was a nice way to end the afternoon, chilling in this nice coffee shop/restaurant… even with the rain making its grand « entrée ». It’s Britain, after all 🙂 …
