Now that I’m on my way to being a lady of leisure / one of the great unwashed (I haven’t worked out which yet) I have time to do some things I haven’t normally been able to do during the working day.  This afternoon that meant popping to Chorlton with a chum for a coffee and a mooch.

A few months ago On the Corneropened on Beech Road and it’s a great mix of cakes, old lp’s and books and the best mix of old furniture and crockery you could ever dream of! 

Unfortunately I didn’t have my camera with me – how silly of me.  [Note to self: always carry camera!]

We had really lovely cake and coffee and were having a good chinwag with owner Steph who was telling us about the different cakes.  It seems the really yummy ones are made by elves!!  Yes, really… elves!!!  Steph leaves plastic boxes in her porch and every morning there are beautiful, fresh cakes in them!  Why aren’t there cake making elves where I live?

Since I didn’t get any pictures you’re going to have to check out their website, or even better go along for yourself.  I can highly recommend the sponge cake with strawberries on it!!!
