Afternoon Tea at Dalloway Terrace

Bloomsbury has always been an artistic hub in central London and in the 1900’s leant it’s name to the Bloomsbury Group; a group of artists, creatives and like-minded individuals who used to meet and discuss their mutual interests.

An Israeli Bottomless Brunch at Bala Baya

I mentioned in a previous post that Mr S is rather mystified by the concept of brunch and he doesn’t quite ‘get’ it.
