Plaistow cafe London

Food review: Plaistow Cafe, 163 Plaistow Road, Plaistow, London

Eat like an Eastender It's not all fancy food here at Foodie Towers, we like to find a good local cafe on our travels and here is one. Thanks to AirBnB and the rise of rented home accommodation we were staying in a house in Plaistow (pronounced Plas-toe) for the simple reason that we could

Hema The Hague cheap breakfast Holland Netherlands

Food: Cheap breakfast in The Hague, Amsterdam and more!

We're always looking to save some money when eating out to allow us to splash out at other times.  The best breakfast (ontbijt) tip for visiting any main town in the Netherlands is to visit HEMA.

Brooklyn cafe Shawlands glasgow

Food: Brunch at Brooklyn Cafe, Shawlands, Glasgow

Hotel Review: Atholl Arms Hotel, Bridge Road, Dunkeld

Atholl Arms in Dunkeld - An ideal getaway You certainly can't miss The Atholl Arms Hotel standing above the banks of the river Tay on the main shopping street in Dunkeld.  Beside the Thomas Telford bridge, it seems to act as a guard and welcome to the town as you cross over the longest river in Scotland from Birnam.

Food Review: Singl-End, 265 Renfrew St, Glasgow G3 6TT

Tasty Cakes and brunch at Singl-end in Glasgow Hidden away in a basement, off the beaten track in Garnethill probably isn’t where you would first look for dishes such as spicy baked eggs or (possibly) the biggest selection of gluten-free cakes in Glasgow. However, it is..! Located along from Glasgow Art School, Singl-end made a
