Ooooops... spelling error alert! Can't change it. Anyway, back to Victoria, after a wonderful month of sunshine and sea in the Caribbean, I continue my search for the perfect cup of coffee. I decide to expand my search to include small Patisseries and places that roast their own coffee. Walked Zoe down on Willows beach, and this was the closest place for coffee. I had been putting it off, because I did know it catered to moms and kids. It's relatively new, and is bright and cheerful. You are faced with an overwhelming choice of incredibly decorated mini and giant muffins, as well as trendy lunches.
I ordered an Americano, and it was OK...not outstanding, but definitely OK. As expected, the place was full of moms and dads with kids, and a bit high energy, what with all that sugar floating in the air. I indulged in a couple of obscene looking mini muffins, and they WERE good. For some strange reason, i seemed to be surrounded by French speaking parents/kids. Interesting, but generally unintelligible to me.
