We finally made it to the North side!!! Can you believe it?! We have been meaning to get out of the East for some time to spread our reviews around a bit more, and finally, well here we are…

Pompidou is as cute as it’s name sounds. Gorgeous bright yellow Tolix chairs cluster outside and inside the front counter is liberally splashed with the same vivid brightness.

I absolutely adore the timber parquetry flooring here, so very rustic and French feeling.

I arrive at Pompidou on a wet and overcast autumn day and my thoughts are as cloudy as the weather. It takes me forever to um… and ahhh… about which baguette or yummy looking sandwich to order…. the friendly and very patient staff suggest many delicious sounding options. Finally I don’t order any sandwiches… I decide that since I am in a French cafe I should in fact opt for the plain croissant, toasted under the grill, and ignore the fact that my morning run was now all for nothing. Cést la vie…! (My croissant is very nearly worth it…)

I have just realised that my penchant for soy cappuccinos in small take-away containers do nothing for my photos! Note to self; when ordering coffee for review, get the cup…. The coffee is lovely and just what a dreary little soul needs on such a grey day. The coffee perks me up no end. Pompidou use organic fair trade coffee, “expertly made and perfectly blended” (it’s really not too much of a stretch…).

A little flyer advertising that Pompidou are able to cater for all your business catering needs, bit cute I thought. The menu at Pompidou is based around the Mediterranean cuisine. It is possible to order anything from a Greek Spanakopita, to a French baguette to a meat pie (rustic of course).
