As a Christian, Easter, particularly Good Friday, is an important date in my calendar. So making my way into Leicester City Centre yesterday, for the celebrations,I quickly made the decision to ‘up’ my coffee intake, to offset the recent caffeine abstinence, due to the strong pain killers I’ve been taking for my back and leg discomfort.
I began at the White Rose Cafe, next to the Cathedral, and enjoyed a rather delicious cappuccino, while bathing in warm sunshine through the floor to ceiling glass panels. Later I joined a recently retired friend of mine in the Leicester Coffee Counter In Bowling Green Street. This place is a little gem, a gorgeous coffee oasis in the town centre.
Using Easter as an excuse, I ordered a toffee muffin with my Long Black brew, the perfect combination. I had to push hard on the brakes to stop me re-ordering the same. That would have been a mistake.
Waving off my friend, I made my way to the recently opened Esquires Cafe in The Circle. This was my second visit, and I was very, very impressed with both the product and service. With usb charging points and accessible plug sockets, it’s a magnet for students and the business community, as well as passers by from New Walk. Great place.
Returning home, I settled into our back garden with my last cup of the day, fully satisfied with the various taste sensations of three different outlets. The Easter break has got off to a tremendous start. No eggs for me please, just a pack of coffee beans will suffice.
