I love Cake  

If you’re a sweet tooth then you’ll be a big fan of this café specializing in all things sugary. Delights such as American pancakes and waffles are served all day long meaning you can stop in for something sweet any time of the day. Their cake menu is as extensive as the name implies so there is bound to be something which will take your fancy.

    Lovely. Coffee is my fuel, and when I’m traveling I make a point to stop at as many coffee shops as possible. It’s fun to see how everyone else in the world kicks off their day. Well… the coffee-lovers at least!
