I wrote about the Little Portland Cafe 12 years ago on A Good Place For A Cup of Tea And A Think. They'd just had a make-over. In the intervening years they've started doing chips so now it's time for an Egg, Bacon, Chips and Beans entry. So, Look. At. That :
Absolutely gorgeous. Text book. I imagine you could draw one of those Golden Ratio things over that and prove it was in fact a renaissance painting. And you might even suggest that the egg represented the sun high above the Roman hills while the chips were the massed galleons of whoever probably invaded Rome at some point. And that, therefore, beans = Rome, bacon = sky. Obvs.
From this angle you can see pock-marking on the face of the sun which might indicate concentrations of magnetic field flux, inhibiting convection and resulting in reduced surface temperature compared to the surrounding, er, egg. So, worth watching out for.
A magnificent condiment array. All the basics, lined-up and ready to go.
This view suggests mortars, ready to pummel your taste buds. Though obviously they'd be more tactically valuable if deployed from a concealed position.
The Little Portland's interior is dominated upfront by a huge glass cabinet of delight and at the back by tables. Beyond that there's the blue hole of kitchen. Splendid.
And the exterior looks lovely now too. The pink is gone, spring is round the corner, those chairs look perfect for a sit and a think.
