Carluccio's - coffee and pastry deal

A relatively short post about my new Friday morning treat.

I've recently been attempting to like coffee... I know I know how have I gone 27 years on this earth without drinking coffee... Well apparently I liked it as a baby. What my parents were doing feeding me coffee as a baby I don't know...

I've been recommended to pile my coffee with sugar and chocolate to make it more palatable to me. 

I ordered my first coffee from Carluccio's a couple of weeks back... A mocha. 

It's amazing. 

Granted it doesn't look like much but inside that cup is fresh coffee and so much chocolate it's almost sickly when you get to the bottom. 

With coffees at Carluccio's ranging from £1.80-2.50 each with their pastry and a coffee deal for £2 it would be a crime not to have one of their ever tempting pastries... 

My choice this morning was a pain au chocolat. They are far superior to those you can buy in Tesco around the corner for 85p and much more sizeable! 

If a pain au chocolate doesn't take your fancy their are also croissants and swirly things which are most likely cinnamon I'm not sure I haven't tried them... Yet. 

The Carluccio's £2 pastry and coffee deal runs each week day morning on Greek Street, eat in or takeaway. (I've tried to confirm weekends/other establishments but their website isn't being very helpful - a quick google suggests not all restaurants participate in the deal).
