A pleasant sunny day, though very cold in the shade with a bitter cold wind blowing.
I decided, walk up Steep Hill to the top, then if I had time, a cappuccino in Makushi on the way back down.
Steep Hill surprisingly very busy, as was the High Street. It was like Christmas and New Year. I assume because school half term.
Makushi though was surprisingly not busy. I sat by the window. It often works, people do not go in a place that looks empty. And yes it did work, a steady stream of customers.
My cappuccino was excellent, but and a curious but.
In many ways a perfect cappuccino, only had like this in Coffee Lab and a couple of other places, but, and it has been three times now, an excellent cappuccino, but always a strange taste within the cappuccino.
Why I do not not know.
The Little Bicycle Coffee Shop down in the town has exactly the same coffee beans, roasted the same way, and yet never has this strange taste. And last week, following my suggestion, the cappuccino was better, though Makushi even better but for the strange taste.
At the back of Makushi, in a back room, there is an undercroft. It has always been occupied when I have visited previously. I guess if you know it is there, a good place to sit, and not everyday can have a coffee in an undercroft.
But, luckily for me, today not occupied.
A long table down the middle, coffee books and coffee mags on a shelf at the back, and as I walked in a bookcase of books.
Whether can take the books or for show I do not know, as I did not ask, but they looked as though there for people to read.
Maybe they ought set up as a BookCrossing zone.
Walking back down very cold.
A car decided ok to drive through the lower half of top end of High Street cos I am a Hermes driver delivering. No, it is not ok, and your are a mug working for Hermes.
But, in the High Street there is a problem. A pedestrianised street and yet after four o’clock lorries allowed to drive through.
After four o’clock the High Street was packed and yet vans and lorries are allowed to drive through.
Coffee Aroma has been ordered to remove its tables and chairs by four o’clock.
Who is causing the problem and a danger to the public, Coffee Aroma or Lincoln City Council and Lincolnshire County Council, with bad town centre planning and allowing cars, vans and lorries through the city centre?
Last week, I was almost run down at four o’clock by a white van as I walked by Coffee Aroma with their tables and chairs neatly stacked up.
