Cafe - Tiger Mottle


Meandering down Heeley Street after returning my library books (and paying my fine!) I was mesmerised by the sun glinting off the waters of the harbour down below. Five Ways is my local High Street/Main Street/shopping strip. It is a delight.

The folk at Tiger Mottle were very welcoming and provided unassuming service. From the blackboard, I chose the Trout with poached egg, on a roast pumpkin pattie all on a bed of wilted spinach and avocado salsa. Very yummy, And their double ristretto on Golden Cobra beans produced a coffee so to my liking, I had two.

Right now everyone in North America is thinking of how to carve a pumpkin so it will look very scary, and you are eating pumpkin patties with trout and poached egg. I remember eating pumpkin as a very nice veggie in Oz many years ago, and, after all, we make pumpkin pie here, and eat lots of squash. Trout and a poached egg doesn't sound like a combination I'd have ever considered, although I love both individually. And wilted spinach and avocado salsa, yum!
Very interesting, Julie. Very very interesting.

You are lucky to have that area so easily accessible.

I have not long finished breakfast, and am dying of hunger again.

Peter said...

yes you are spoiled for choice for fine foods and coffe - as for the fine, if you are like me is is a small return on the outgoings of books borrowed.

Your photos paint the cafe in a warm, welcoming light.

Double-shot espresso, please...

I had to give up on library books ... the fines were killing me.

I can't say more than what Kay already said. Sounds like a delicious lunch. Think I'll go make myself a coffee...

[And speaking of libraries and books, how did you like Murakami?]

Julie said...

ahh Murakami ... I am a sponge to his sentence structures, to his brevity, to his sensibilities ... 'After Dark' is my own personal 'Fowlers'!

I have read twice and am now dipping in and annotating paragraphs. Sad, eh?

He is teaching me how to vary my style in my own language. I am learnig pacing and viewpoint and applying to the little stories in my Riff blog.

I would not give you tuppence for his storylines though ...
