Coffee & Cuisine Catch-up..... Coffee



This month I have been to 2 fab places that are 'pop-up' venues,(only there for a limited time). Apologies for only getting round to sharing them with you now. Life has been a little hectic of late.
My first share is Coffee with Friends....(apologies Vic for plagiarising the title!)... whilst I was up at Carnaby Street a few weeks ago, I popped round to where the Friends Central Perk Coffee Shop had been set up. I was so early into London that the Q hadn't even started to form for it. and as I was peering into the window a member of the Friends crew opened the door and asked if i wanted to quickly look around whilst he set up!... how fab was that!. Central Perk was set up as a promotional event to celebrate 15 years of Friends... All of the set props were there to look just like Central Perk,including Rachel's bridesmaids dress and the Turkey complete with sunglasses from the fab episode when Joey puts it on his head!
The coffee menu only had the 5 coffee's offered in Central Perk
and was free with a downloaded voucher from the website.

It was great to see it all and you really felt like Joey or Chandler were going to walk in the door at anytime!
