A trip down memory lane|Cafe Mamma

When I was a little girl nearly every Saturday my mum, my older sister and I would stroll into town and do a spot of shopping before ending the day by meeting up with my dad at Cafe Mamma for dinner. It was a family hang out spot and I was super sad when it closed down; but much to my delight this gorgeous Italian restaurant has re-opened in Kew. The parents and I couldn’t wait to re-visit and we were not disappointed.

It still had the washing hanging up like it used to all those years ago and that true Italian spirit.

I kicked my meal off with a good old cocktail a San Petro – Gin, sweet vermouth, campari and triple sec with orange juice.

I had my first ever taste of calamari at the old Cafe Mamma so it only seemed right to have it as my starter at the new place.

Somehow I managed to cram in a tiramisu for dessert not sure how I did it but I am glad I did.

I recently had a girlie night out, we took a river cruise and had a chilled bottle of wine whilst we travelled upstream instead of sweltering on a bus before chowing down on some of the best steak ever at CAUI didn’t blog about it this time but I will soon, promise. Then it was cocktail time.I wanted an outfit that was cool and comfortable in the hot weather but still suited all the different locations. The skirt is quite a dressy piece so I dressed it down with a loose t-shirt this one has the phrase ‘Cute but Pyscho’ on the pocket. I opted for flats because heat and heels is sometimes just too much; I am not normally one for false nails but these caught my eye at Superdrug and I couldn’t resist picking them up.
