Not shy when it comes to eating cake, (yes, really), Ms Monkfish practically pole vaulted* off the sofa when presented with the opportunity to ‘take afternoon tea’ at the ‘pop-up’ Pommery Bar, just off the Royal Mile, Edinburgh.
*she’s been studying the technique during the Olympics and have to say has pretty much perfected it
After a very successful ‘pop’ last year and making the most of the Festival madness the Pommery Bar (based at the Signet Library) is back once again to satisfy the champagne quaffing, cake scoffing Edinburgh massive. And believe us, there’s plenty of ‘em.
Not one to ‘take tea’ alone Ms Monkfish invited along Ms Convivium Wine to join her and share in the calorific delights that were presented. Turns out Ms Con-Viv is also not shy of chomping a cake or three (Marjorie, what a co-incidence) so between them they managed to see off most of the following….and in no particular order! Yep, no shame when eating with friends, and if that means cake before sandwiches then so be it!
Afternoon tea….DONE. Particular highlight for Ms Monkfish were the fruit scones with fresh berries whilst Ms Con-Viv was a major fan of the savoury variety featuring sun dried tomatoes, chomp.
If you like what you see then fear not, you’ve still got time to peg it up to the Pomm and enjoy a similar experience.
