Dolce and Amaro, Willesden Lane North West London




Spring has finally reared it’s beautifully, cherry blossomed head, and you find yourself in North West London in serious need for a properly made, Italy Cappuccino but also need to pick up some pasta for dinner…what do you do?

You head over to Dolce & Amaro in Kilburn, that’s what. The new (and very lovely) comers to the area, having opened in late Jan 2014, offer a wide array of delectable yummies such as homemade hot and cold food, PROPERLY made coffees and teas, cakes, some pre-packaged foods for instance pasta (hence the comment above), all available to eat-in or take away, including the CAKE.

Bless their entrepreneurial hearts they open from 8am – 8pm Monday – Saturday, and 8.30/9am – 6.30/7pm on Sundays, those kinds of hours would kill me so I wish them every success!

Also I have it on good authority (the horse’s mouth, so to speak) that the owners, Dolce and Amaro, are quite found of people popping in for a chin-wag, so if you happen to be on Willesden Lane and are in need of some friendly banter, I personally recommend stopping by. The Cappuccino is also pretty damn good too.


Open hours:

Mon – Sat: 8am – 8pm

Sunday: 8.30/9am – 6.30/7pm

London, NW6 7TA

Million Mask March, Trafalgar Square West London


On November 5th 2013 the group Anonymous are inviting everyone to don a mask and gather for a friendly meeting of minds in Trafalgar square, followed by a SILENT stroll to Parliament, some music in the form of  Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture then a tea party to finish off the evening.

The march, which is a global event, will also take place in Nigeria, Washington,  Romania, India, Melbourne, El Salvador plus numerous other cities World wide on the 5th.

The aim of the gathering is to meet and greet like minded people to exchange and share ideas. All are welcome and a blockade of the streets of West London the desired result…however the website have stated that should the streets become gridlocked emergency services will get through should they need to.

If you have a spare mask (or not) and feel like some tea and a chat in front of the Houses of Parliament then head down to Trafalgar Sq at 6pm on Tuesday 5th November…a revolution is afoot.

Treacle, Columbia Road East London

Image from

Info from


Situated in the heart of the East End’s famous Columbia Road flower market, is the new nostalgia that is TREACLE. A welcome antidote to the ubiquitous coffee-shop chains, and overfussy continental-style patisseries, this is an unashamed celebration of basic British baking.


Greeted by the tempting array of fairy cakes, Victoria sponges and fruit loaves, customers will instantly recognize the sights, smells and tastes of a bygone era. But this is no chintzy, rose-tinted delusion of halcyon days – rather a realistic homage to the gritty times of the great British urban tea house (think Lyons) – right down to its drab décor reminiscent of the typically British no-nonsense attitude with its accent on frugality and function. Thus it’s setting in one of the oldest East End markets is wholly appropriate.


TREACLE is all about a desire to reintroduce a place in our lives for honest, comfort food.


Open: Noon-5pm Sat; 9am-3pm Sun




110-112 Columbia Road E2 7RG


Transport: Hoxton or Shoreditch High Street Rail
