Home Bakery – Pain au Chocolat

I’ll be honest with you – it takes a while to make these. Not really the effort, more of a waiting game. But at the end, it’s worth it. Personally I am not a biggest fan of a dry pain au chocolat, which you usually get in most super markets and coffee shops. Unless you…

Chemex

Let’s talk about Chemex. In simple words it is a coffeemaker. In a bit more technical, it is a pour over technique that uses a percolation method to get you a good quality coffee. I will admit that I don’t brew with it every day and maybe I should. But simply there are easier methods….

Review: Prince of Wales Pub

Recently we’ve found ourselves going to vegetarian/vegan only places, just to ensure we’ll have plenty of options with the food choices. But in doing so there are times when you miss out on other dining experiences. Well the Prince of Wales recently re-opened with a brand new look, full vegan menu and some spectacular desserts….

ALT. Sheffield

In the Sheffield vegan and vegetarian community there has been a lot of talk about the new cafe on the block – ALT. Found in Crookes’ ever expanding cool cafe scene, ALT. offers up comforting, delicious food in the most welcoming of atmospheres. Perfect for vegans, vegetarians and meat-eaters alike, this 100% vegan menu has…

Church + Make No Bones

It has been months since the opening of Church Temple of Fun and probably the best vegan spot in Sheffield – Make No Bones. But despite all the excitement and anticipation for something spectacular it ended up being slightly disorganised with the amazing food being slightly put on the back foot. But before I put…

Speciality Coffee & Upshot Espresso

“Wine, gin, beer – these are the drinks that are crafted and made ready for you to enjoy. With coffee it’s grown, picked, delivered, roasted and even then you can mess up the end product before you savour it. It’s an art.” I quietly stood outside, admiring the view before taking the picture of a…

Cawa Coffee – Broomhill

If any of you know us in real life, you’ll know we can’t resist a good coffee shop and a pastry or two. With our recent move to the Ranmoor end of Sheffield, we’ve now got heaps more cafes and restaurants in walking distance to explore and try out. It’s hard work but someone’s got…

But First. Coffee.

My first brew was the same as most. Parents drinking a black, mud-like liquid right before going to work. With such a delicious smell yet intensely unappealing taste, I never understood why people liked it. I never even tried it… until a few years ago. It was December 2015, around Christmas time. Unfortunately, I was not…

Smells Like Cinnabons

So I am a big fan of Ikea. I suppose this is how confession starts. Every time I had a chance I would go for cinnabons and meatballs. This is my type of comfort food. And it is cheap! But as the time passed, I realised that I can easily make cinnabons myself and to…

Treehouse Board Game Cafe 

I’m really excited to tell you about this new Sheffield establishment – a board game cafe near London Road/Ecclesall Road area. A Sheffield first and what a great idea! Augustinas and I often get frustrated that when we get back from work there are basically no places to hang out that aren’t bars. Treehouse perfectly…
