Chocolate Treat!

Yesterday a friend and I met up in Oxford, not for shopping, just to get together for a chat, and a little look around, but the first stop was Cafe Nero in Blackwells Book shop....such a treat and very warming!!

  1. That drink would stop me in my tracks no matter where it was!

  2. YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!! That looks scrummy!!!

  3. I always find the coffee in cafe nero too strong and bitter..i prefer costa coffee or savino's when in cambridge :-)

  4. Scintilla - 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.

  5. Sounds like a perfect outing -- chocolate and a bookstore! Great you had a nice time and yummmmm.

  6. I don't think there is anything better than hot chocolate, unless it's a book store.

  7. oooooh....anything with chocolate would be a major treat for me!!

    I worked for Godiva for a year when I lived in Florida, but Dove is actually my favorite.

    Happy Valentines Day, Anne!

  8. Coffee in a bookshop. Browsing over a brew. Chatting with friends. Who wants more than that?

  9. Hi Anne,
    Yummy !
    I drink a lot of tea, but always am game for a good cup of hot chocolate.
    Your's looked heavenly.
    I hope that you have had a nice cozy Valentine's day.
    Sending you Love.

  10. Oh what fun...I miss girl chats over coffee!
    As for my header...yes that's a flower from my garden last summer!
    Thanks : )

  11. That looks delicious, I shall try to make one on my own!!!Hope you had a fun day!
    Hope you had a nice weekend and Valentine's as well!xo

  13. Mmm...That looks delicious Anne.
    I'm envious as I can't have cream or milk in my drinks as it upsets my digestive system.

    Hope you are well,


  14. YUM!!!! I wish you had posted this while I was still in the UK, then I could have one too!

  15. I 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!
