The last time I visited here was about 20 years ago I worked out, as it was the same length of time since the last time I saw the musical Notre Dame de Paris in London.

This was the last day of my recent London trip, so it was time to grab some lunch and here was the perfect spot to have it in.

Looking Around

Inside is very traditional and classy, it has a posh Italian cafe style feel to it. The atmosphere is really nice, and you get cosy as soon as you sit down.

It was busy today so I didn’t want to take any inside photos, as people were enjoying chatting and eating.

The Food…

EGGS BENEDICT £8.95

Sliced roast ham on toasted focaccia bread, two poached hen’s eggs with hollandaise sauce and chives

Now, this was an odd option for me, as I am not a big egg fan but I haven’t had it in a very very long time and thought let’s try it and see.

I started with the fries and have to say these were nice, I think there were some rosemary hints coming through? whatever it was these were nice.

The Eggs Benedict I started and have to say wow this was very good!!! I would have this again as I loved the flavours. This has converted me from not having eggs to starting them again.

Overall

20 years later and the food atmosphere and service is still really good.

Yes, the prices are a little higher than you would normally want to pay, but one its London and to the location as it’s right next to Harrods.

I have recently visited the Caffe Monza in Glasgow West End, and really enjoyed my snacks there. When I got the invite I couldn’t say no, as 1. I enjoyed the West End one and 2. I hadn’t been to Ayr for a while.

Cafee Monza were nice enough to put on transportation from Glasgow, to take any bloggers all the way through to Ayr. This was amazing and very very nice of them to do this, so a big think you Caffe Monza.

We all met at George Square and hit the road to Ayr.

Caffe Monza is in the main town area of Ayr, and on arrival was nicely light up and we call couldn’t wait to get inside and enjoy the event.

When we entered it was packed, and the atmosphere was buzzing.

The Food :

I decided to have a Panini with a coffee and a cake, but the hard part was what Panini coffee and what cake…hmmm.

Caramel Crunch Latte N/A (Normally £3.50)

Overall :

Tonight was very good, I heard it was friends and family and a few bloggers. Looking around it was packed so this was a very successful evening.

Throughout the night we had a girl singing and playing the guitar, she was very good and I enjoyed her style and tone.

Again I would like to give a big thank you to Caffe Monza for the invite and putting on the transportation, the driver even dropped us all at our on houses at the end of the night so a massive thank you to him to.

If your ever in Glasgow West End, or even in Ayr do visit Caffe Monza and try a few items you will not be disappointed.

Thanks again Caffe Monza and see you soon. x

This restaurant is one of my favourite places to go, the staff, location and food are always perfect and I always can’t wait to return.

Today was a lovely day and I felt its time to visit here again, and try something different.

The Food…

Pinsa Rosso : Calabrese £12.50

IMG_8720

I was very undecided today as what I wanted, as there was a few items I would have liked to try…..I ended up going for pizza.

Presentation wise it looks very nice, and it smelled good so I looked forward to this. This isn’t your typical pizza, its a cross between flatbread and a pizza plus it’s not round.

The pizza is very easy to eat, it’s perfectly cooked and the flavours were spot on everything worked well together.

Those of you that know me, or have read my posts know I have a very sweet tooth so I HAD to order this.

OH MY GOD!!! chocolate heaven in a dish for me, it was very sweet, very chocolatey and very very moreish.

If you love chocolate or have a sweet tooth order this, you won’t regret it.
