Scrumpy Willow & the Singing Kettle

Photobucket

When I accidentally came across a cafe by the name of Scrumpy Willow & the Singing Kettle whilst browsing the internet, how could I not pay it a visit for Sunday brunch? Tucked away in, not the most savoury part of Newcastle upon Tyne, nonetheless it was an interesting change from the usual eateries. With an Indian inspired fantastic vegetarian and vegan menu, most of the food is sourced organically and locally. I enjoyed a cappuccino and vegan breakfast along with a spiced chai latte while my friend opted for traditional Eggs Benedict with her coffee.

  6. What a great little place. There was a children's show called The Singing Kettle once upon a time, although it was maybe just in Scotland I think... I love being reminded of things like that.

    That's a great dress too, it looks vintage rather than Topshop!
