I’m walking down Clerkenwell Road.

What is the soup of the day?

Maybe lots of clerks eat here? Eerrr well..

Flaming hell secret hand shakes and spying going on!

Do you think he is Tony?… I see he like to write on things.

There must be endless famous people around here. 

Soup of the day in a room of hungry looks.

I bet David Robilliard never ate here.

If you want to try soup of the day….

Keep tomorrow free!

Poem and snaps by Mitch Hicks

It was one of those days when I had mapped out soooo much to do and once again in London it was the unexpected finds by chance that just makes my day!!! In fact there were a few things that will stick in my mind but the one I’m sharing with you here is Mario’s Cafe in Kentish Town. Why?…. Well life revolves around people and just seeing faces can tell it’s own story. I say no more…. but you will form your own I’m sure…
Mario’s cafe can be found at 6 Kelly Street, Kentish Town.

Pete’s Cafe

Pete’s Cafe..If you were passing by would you go in..? No I did not think you would. Maybe the metal security grill put you off. Or was it the abandoned kitchen sink next door? So what did I do? Well I was dying to go to the loo, hungry and needed a cup of tea.Too early for a beer in a pub so yes I went in. Deep down I new this type of cafe was what we in England call a greasy spoon cafe that is no longer the norm in our changing towns and cities. I’m not one for a fry up as a rule, but thought lets try the bacon, egg and chips and wash it down with a mug of tea.
I remember sitting down in a plastic chair looking at all the stuff on the walls and thinking I’m glad I paid a visit as this cafe will be long gone in a year or two at best. As for the food it was not great. There was no loo on site to use. Would I recommend this place? Not as a cafe in my top ten that’s for sure, but maybe as a place that if you had walked past you might have thought you would have loved to have been brave enough to have gone in. As for Pete……. Well make your own mind up on what he was thinking!!!

    I spy the streets of London robbing art where I can
    I peel, disect, mould and blend
    I let hanging snaps hang
    I warm the pot selecting my prey
    Oh yes there is plenty on the back burner
    Even more tucked away for that rainy day
    Supper.. I’m cooking umbrellas with mushrooms in my own way
