Another day, another lunch. And I just love places like this, whether a deli in America or a back street cafe in Britain, Places serving simple, well cooked, food at very economical prices.
A grilled cheese and bacon sandwich was just what you want. Crispy bacon, tasty bread nicely toasted, mild melty cheese. And there was a small garden salad to sit alongside.
A regular offering of the British back street cafe is sausage, chips and beans. So I thought I’d make a transatlantic comparison. A couple of knockwurst were tastier than most offerings in Britain – but not as tasty as the sausage in our village cafe. Steak fries were good. Baked beans were OK and, almost certainly, came out of a tine, just as they would at home. But the one major difference was the very nice crispy coleslaw. Coleslaw in a back street cafe? Nah, we don’t do healthy in back street cafes.
