A day in... Forest Hill

Yesterday I was lucky enough to have my good friend Mirvet suggest we check out a few things in Forest Hill, and even luckier for me it's only 4 stops away on the overground. We met around 1-ish and found our lunch spot.. St David Coffee House which was right opposite the station.

A quaint cafe with rustic wooden floors, paintings for sale, a lot of vintage mirrors and peonies and spider plants in vases. The window at the front of the cafe being covered in overgrown foliage feels like you're in a garden shed, how your dad probably feels when he goes to escape the chaos. Now we get it.

I've recently gone on a no carbs diet (cutting out bread, potato, pasta and rice) so I felt extremely excited that they had this dish on their menu... I went for the corn fritta's w/ avocado, tomato, poached egg and kasundi which was so tasty. Mirvet went for the sourdough w/ avocado, bacon and poached egg. I tried not to dribble over her bread...

I didn't manage to get a snap of the amazing cake collection (probably because it would have been torture) so I stole Mirvets... c'mon I don't know how we both resisted if I'm honest. 


Next we took a short walk to The Horniman Museum being the cheapskates we are we didn't pay to get into the actual museum part and as it was a dry day we walked around the gardens.

May of taken it in turns to have a mini photoshoot by this beach shack lookalike. I'd recommend these gardens for something cool to do for free in South East London, there's also a mini zoo with llamas in but it was closed when we were there but we got a quick glimpse.
