So, on a dark afternoon self and wife went to seek some food, any food, and spotted the lights in the distance which was this bakery. We asked for tea, a simple enough request you might say but the lady behind the counter said with a rather strange and twisted smile, we are not serving tea or coffee any more because we close at five o'clock.
My maths tells me that 20 min remains so why was she so keen to get out of place. It was quite clear that she had started cleaning the coffee machine about 10 min before because there were pipes hanging out of it.
Anyway, we settled for a brown toasted sandwich and my wife settled for a salmon sandwich. The cheese in my toasted sandwich was good as was the bread. The salmon sandwich was barely adequate and she put the filling into one half and took away the other half of bread.
The price of the two were £6.50. This seemed a bit steep but I did not feel like arguing because we were so hungry so we chomped away.
I swear this woman was in a hypnotic trance because she was definitely not there and present for us. The smile was fake, an extension of the muscles of the face and that was all.
There were an awful lot of large pies in the hot container, plus a few cakes, and a lot of jars of preserves along the wall. I'm not sure how much was healthy and how much was not.
We left and I doubt if I will return. Creepy.
