• Sunday Brunch

    logo-smallSo the theme today was food. After breakfast at Paddy and Scott’s then had a wander around as had a few errands and managed to burn up a bit of energy in the process so wondered where next. Decided to head over to Abbeygate Cinema where they have do some excellent food. As it was almost midday I went for Sunday Brunch which is the first time I have had that there before. Plenty of choices but went for a cheese omelette and coffee. Tasted excellent and was just enough, definitely something I will be doing again. I didn’t take a picture though this time clearly thinking too much about my stomach but it was well worth it. Their menu is here so see what you fancy, their burgers are very good :). They also do some excellent cakes and I did wonder about grabbing a piece of the Old Fashioned Chocolate cake to eat later but decided against in the end, maybe next time…

  • Paddy & Scott’s cafe

    20141026_095527-1I have never come across Paddy & Scott’s cafe before but they have opened a new one in Bury St Edmunds recently. So being in Bury this morning I thought I would wonder over for breakfast as it was open at 9am and should have been up and running by the time I got there. Arrived soon after 9.30am. First impressions very good the place is clean and looks very inviting. Ordered the normal black Americano (black means no milk amazing how many Barista’s don’t listen). Quite a selection of food but wanted a Pain Au Choc but these would be a few more minutes as they were still cooking! Surprised as the place had been open for a while but waited for it to arrive and it was certainly worth it, a nice warm Pain Au Choc to start the day. Only comment is that it could have been a little bigger was still peckish when finished.

    Someone came in about 15 minutes later and asked for the same thing and told they were in the oven. Seems like they only cook a very small number at a time which is odd in the morning, they certainly missing sales there. Excellent music playing in the background gave it a good atmosphere. The other thing they have going for them is somewhere to sit with lots of power sockets for laptops and phone charging. This is something that many other cafe’s need to get installed as I am sure it will increase sales nowadays.

    All in all a good start to the day and will return shortly to see how they getting on. 7/10 for the first time.

  • Gone Girl

    If you are looking for a good movie to fill a couple of hours you could go and watch Gone Girl. Full of twists and turns and you certainly have to pay attention. Beforehand I did wonder why it was an 18 movie but it was obvious once it got going. Here is a summary from one of the websites,

    An exhausted-looking man stands in front of a crowd of journalists. Behind him is a large poster of a pretty woman below the word ‘missing’. Welcome to David Fincher’s dark new vision of Gone Girl. Based on Gillian Flynn’s 2012 bestseller, this is another deceptive and irresistible thriller from the man behind SE7EN, ZODIAC and the English-language version of THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO. Ben Affleck stars as Nick Dunne, one half of a seemingly perfect marriage, his wife Amy played by the excellent Rosamund Pike. The story follows the couple as they downsize from New York to Nick’s hometown. All is well until their fifth wedding anniversary, when Amy inexplicably goes missing, and soon enough Nick is singled out as the prime suspect in her disappearance. Needless to say, nothing and no one gives up the answers easily.

    It is well made and an excellent thriller that keeps you gripped throughout and easily scores a 9 out of 10 from me. If you don’t go to the cinema much you should make the effort for this one. You do sit there trying to get the next direction the plot will take, you are rarely right.

    Realised I have seen loads of movies over the past year but written very little about them here will have to rectify that I think good to remember what I think about them.
