Most of the shops at The Tannery were closed for today’s public holiday. This was a day when opening was optional there, and I applaud the management’s willingness to ensure that staff have a holiday.
We headed over to The Colombo. I hadn’t been there for months, and there have been some changes, all documented on an attractive directory board.
We lunched at Maison de Crepes. It’s a long time since I studied French, but I feel that name should be Maison des Crepes?
I had a Cranberry Chick Crepe
and Stephen chose Nutella and Banana, which reminded us of eating crepes in Paris, where we first encountered Nutella. The crepes were served on plastic plates, but we did get metal cutlery. When I asked for glasses for our drinks I was told they can’t supply those because they don’t have a dishwasher. Instead we were given straws which didn’t quite reach the bottom of the bottle. Why can’t they make longer straws? As we finished a worker swooped on our plates which went into the rubbish bin, so presumably they’re not biodegradable. At least the cutlery gets washed and recycled.
“The crepe I had was good to eat
a glass would make this meal complete.”
