Wednesday

Mrs Jones' Kitchen

Last week was my last Wednesday off before I start my new job this week, so it felt necessary to visit Canterbury with my dear friend Zena. After a quick stop in our favourite sewing shop we popped into Mrs Jones' Kitchen for some tea and cake.
I have walked past this 'Instagrammable' café for quite some time but haven't had the chance to go in. Zena and I ogled at the delicious cakes on the cake stands before sitting down on one of the round marble top tables. 
Even though we had already decided on a Wagamama lunch we had a peek at the menu anyway. I cannot wait to go back, though it would be hard to choose from the lovely delights they have on offer like the homemade burgers or yummy salads, but they had fish finger sandwiches on the menu! How can I not?!
^Look at these cute milk bottles!
After telling myself I cannot have two lunches and putting my mind on cake instead of fish fingers I decided on the white chocolate Millionaire Shortcake with my breakfast tea. Zena opted for a slice wedge of Lemon Drizzle cake.
They had a lovely selection of sponges, including chocolate & courgette cake and orange & bergamot.
I love the interior of Mrs Jones' Kitchen, the framed pastel maps and teacup illustrations are just so lovely, along with the vintage floral plates fixed to the blue wall above the condiments. The marble topped garden tables had kilner jars filled with sugar lumps and glass bottles filled with fresh tulips.
The far wall has a bench fixed to the wall which is dotted with colourful cushions. It seems like a perfect reading nook if I was ever there alone or the perfect place for a spot of Pictionary?! Yes, this place has a pile of board games to play! Extra points.
They are not only a café however, they are open Wednesday and Saturday evenings for events such as live music and poetry. I think I may have to drag my lovely Suz out for a burger and some folk music.
This place is so lovely, with lovely staff. I cannot wait to go back for that sandwich.

  1. It's places like this that really make us appreciate the little things in life isn't it? It looks absolutely adorable; definitely a tea lovers paradise! I wish I was closer by so I could check it out! Although I'm not sure about the chocolate and courgette cake... it seems an odd mix but I assume it's lovely so I'd definitely give it a try!

  2. I would have gone for the chocolate and courgette cake, sounds so lovely, I love cakes that are a bit different.

    This place looks so so lovely, I don't think I've ever been to Canterbury but if I'm ever in the area I'll be sure to pop in.

  3. Very cosy and homely. I love the interior as well, the small milk bottles instead of the customary creamer, the china on the wall, the mismatched chairs which are actually coordinated (alternating blue and white). I love courgette but I don't think I'll have it in my cake. But I'll try anything (well, most things), so I'll give it a shot if I ever come across one. Just my kind of day :)

  6. This place looks so cute! I can't wait to get my own home, i've seen so many of these cute teashops that I want to steal little bits of the design from.
