Whilst walking though Little Venice we came across this beautiful little houseboat cafe and in the freezing cold it was great to drop in here and have a hot coffee, hot chocolate, and something to eat if you wish. It was certainly a great find...

While having a lovely walk around little Venice we came across this cafe situated on a barge boat. Intrigued and enjoying the outdoor sunshine, we took a seat. The servers came across as quite rude as it felt like we were being an inconvenience for...More
