That looks scrummy!!!ReplyDeletesally in norfolk12 February 2009 at 21:19I always find the coffee in cafe nero too strong and bitter..i prefer costa coffee or savino's when in cambridge :-)ReplyDeleteAnne in Oxfordshire12 February 2009 at 21:29Scintilla - It was super, tasty and warming :-)Leesa - Mine was the big one - Hot chocolate, the other in Hot chocolate Milano :-)Sally - If I had a Savinos I would go there. Costa coffee not good, well not here, and I don't like the cafes. We have two very good Cafe Neros..excellent service, very pleasant staff, and super chocolate.ReplyDeleteCarolyn12 February 2009 at 23:54Sounds like a perfect outing -- chocolate and a bookstore!

I wish you had posted this while I was still in the UK, then I could have one too!ReplyDeleteAndrew Blackman5 March 2009 at 00:12I love Blackwells in Oxford - the way you walk down and look out over that huge room packed with books. I used to spend hours there when I lived in Oxford. Never had a Caffe Nero in my day, though - if it had, with hot chocolates like that, I'd probably never have left!ReplyDeleteAdd commentLoad more...
