Coffee Break #5 Soup and Crusty Bread at Cheltenham Market @ 252 Bath Road with Katie Fforde

Before the weather gets so nippy that alfresco dining is a big no-no, I took advantage of a dry, mild Saturday lunch time, with a visit to the Cheltenham Market @ 252 Bath Road. There were many cakes to choose from, but it was the butternut squash, red lentil and sweet potato soup that took my fancy; especially as it was served with one almighty hunk of bread from the neighbouring Roots and Fruits. With a full belly and warm hands, I stole a few minutes to read some more of Highland Fling by local author Katie Fforde.

Coffee Break #4 Cake at Moka with Jojo Moyes

Nestled away in The Suffolks area of Cheltenham sits Moka Coffee House. And on a drizzly evening after work, I took full advantage of their cosy surroundings and enjoyed a slice of their caramel and coffee cake, a mug of hot chocolate, and lost myself with Jojo Moyes and her book The Girl You Left Behind. I started reading it, because I thought the cover was very apt for this time of year.
