My local discovery - Alexandra Nurseries Cafe

It was a beautiful sunny day today here in South London and I could not resist going out before locking myself up in the studio to work.

I went for a walk around the local streets in Penge where I live. Some time ago I discovered Alexandra Nurseries and somehow I my feet took me there again. Oh, the pull of the Flour-less Orange Cake!

Alexandra Nurseries is a small family owned plant nursery, vintage garden shop and a cafe. It is tucked in between small Victorian cottages in a hidden corner of Penge. It opened in April this year.

My eye was pulled to the lovely pumpkin display by the entrance:

This place is always a feast for the eyes, full of colour and exciting new arrivals. Today I bought some Parrot Tulip bulbs to plant in our front garden.

So.... the Flour-less Orange Cake, what can I say? Yum yum and yum! It is made with ground almonds and it tastes like heaven. I had it with a delicious cup of English Breakfast tea.

Apart from serving a wonderful variety of cakes, tea and coffee, Alexandra Nurseries sells interesting plants, garden objects, vintage crockery and other things.

It is an inspiring and friendly place. Come and see for yourself.
