"Breakfast at the Blue Moon...""



My city is full of eating places. There's all kinds, believe me; you can eat cheaply, cosily, costly, casually, chic-ly...but today we discovered a new place. And it seems it's been there for ages. We've been a bit slow. We must've walked past it lots. But we'd never heard of it, let alone seen it or tried it. And it's great. It's by the river ( near the suspension bridge) and it's called the Blue Moon Cafe and it buzzes ( at least it did at 11:30 this morning) .It's like sloping into a 1950/1960's coffee bar; it has original stuff: furniture, posters etc (the best original coffee bar was the Elvista, high up on Watergate Row)...and yes, the Blue Moon has a juke box ( an Ami Continental, packed with 100 brilliant discs) and its food....yum, enough said, but there's bacon butties, big breakfasts ( little ones) home cooked, Mediterranean, Eastern, TexMex....hmm.
I'm busy a lot next week, but the following one....

Loved your account of going to the movies.

Thanks for this.
I've mentioned this place to a couple of folk today ( separately) and both immediately said: " Yep, have you REALLY never been there before? WHERE have you been, lady??!"
