Gasping for a cuppah, after buying Tesco, Surrey Quays, I noticed a table and two chairs outside the new Cafe/Deli: EATalia
- so sallied forth and had a look.
It looks very pleasant - the outside area at the rear is now covered. I met the Proprietor, Francesco, a very pleasant young Italian [with excellent English :P] and this is his first venture; he's a Chef by training.
The Tea [Earl Grey] was served in a small pot and a lovely china cup and saucer, and milk [I'm a Heathen lol]and I sat outside watching the world of Bermondsey Street
I didn't eat but there was a good selection of food - home made, of course - and some very pleasant aromas eminating from the kitchen.
An extremely pleasant half hour - two cups from the pot!
I like the Village Deli very much and use it quite a lot; EATalia
does remain open until, I think 6pm.
Welcome, Francesco, and I hope you succeed where others have failed.
Check it out!
