Mum and daughter date


Today I introduced mum to General Merchants on the Newtownards Road, East Belfast.


This week has been crazy with work for both of us and it’s been a while since we’ve both had a day out together so we decided to start with a spot of lunch.


Mum went for the B.A.L.T. – bacon, avocado, lettuce and tomato on a seeded bagel. She’s not a avocado fan but really enjoyed this and said she would have it again.


I went for the Melbourne Breakfast – toasted sourdough with vegemite, avocado, capers, lemon, parsley, seeds and onion with poached eggs and then I added a side of bacon.  Avocado like this is definitely my new favourite thing.


I had told mum how delicious the sweet treats were too so of course we had to treat ourselves and indulge.


Mum went for a decaf cappuccino with one of the chocolate and Guinness mini cakes (this one is my favourite), delicious and moist with a hint of Guinness in the chocolate taste.


I went for a tea with the chocolate and peanut mini cake. This was also really tastey, no way could I have eaten a whole one though as I found it very sweet.  Mum and I went half each on our cakes so this wasn’t a problem.

All together our lunch costed £27.60, not too bad for a one of treat and some delicious food. We will definitely be back, even just for the coffee and sweet treats.
