Thank you Voodles for your response and glad you liked the meringue - I think you may have posted that lovely photo of it as well. Keiko is from Japan and is our Madam Butterfly - she flits here and there and we love her.

I had a white bean soup which was delicious. The coffee was good and strong. It's an interesting place as there's also a shop selling food such as bread and chutneys and kitchen equipment.
