Sometimes I meet up with Ben and YaYa for Saturday breakfast; sometimes I’m on my own. The Crumpet Shop used to be a 15 minute walk from the apartment. Now, it’s about a 50 minute walk. I was out at 7:30am, and on my way.
You might ask yourself if you’d walk 50 minutes for Saturday breakfast. Take a look at this toasted crumpet with ricotta and homemade lemon curd. If you could taste it, I rest assured you would. 🙂
I arrived at the Crumpet Shop a little later than I hoped, and it was suitably crowded for a Saturday morning. But miraculously, my favorite small table was free and I nabbed it before I went up to the counter and ordered. I considered getting my best spot a harbinger of a good day.
