Not long ago I went to Blackburn coffee when it had just recently opened, however I didn’t get a chance to taste their coffee as I choose the green tea so a second visit was most definitely necessary. Do you know those kind of places which entice you to return the moment you leave its doors? Blackburn is that kind of place. After all a menu with so many delicious dishes would require countless visits to taste them all. The lunch time menu consists of home-baked dishes such as oeuf cocotte and generously topped tartines prepared in front of you and served alongside a hearty salad and coleslaw. Whilst I’ve been dying to try one of their savoury dishes, the last couple of times I haven’t been hungry enough for lunch so have instead opted for a tea break. I ordered carrot cake which comes with a little pot of fromage blanc and was moist and nutty enough to keep me content, and my friend ordered the cookie, we both washed down our desserts with a superb latte.
