My Newest Haunt (Yes It’s A Place With Food)!

You are completely forgiven if you think that my life almost completely revolves around food (well, it does a bit) or that I spend the majority of my time, going out to eat cake and drink tea. There are two explanations for this; firstly, the weather has, once again, turned dismal and if I don’t get out and do something I can end up being marooned at home by the rain. Secondly, I am on a mission to discover as many Dorset places and events as possible and where better to start than the county’s myriad of wonderful cafes and tea shops.

The weather was so utterly wet on Friday that my friend and I (and her gorgeous son, Miles) took off to Sturminster Newton to seek a warm refuge in Joshua’s cafe. It is such a friendly, relaxed place to go. You receive a lovely welcome (from Joshua himself) and their cakes and chai lattes are delicious. We had heaps of coffee and walnut cake, pots of tea, chai lattes and it didn’t take much persuading for us to try their amaretto and lemon biscotti.  Miles was more interested in chewing the head of his squeaky giraffe than in our treats, but he did spend a fair amount of time covering a large radius of space around us in home-made sweet potato muffins and pea fritters.

If you are out near Stur and feel like enjoying a calm cup of tea without feeling hassled, head for Joshua’s… and if you see me (probably with empty tea cups surrounding me), please come and say hi!

Ooh, and I need to add… if you have any interesting suggestions for my next excursion, please drop them in a comment below. H x
