Lunch and afternoon tea at Café Mila

Excellent lunch at Café Mila.

Pumpkin soup, followed by filo pastry tart stuffed with vegetables.

Pumpkin soup is usually an orangey-yellow. This was green. I do not know why. I meant to ask the chef, but forgot. Strictly speaking, it was spiced pumpkin soup.

A wander around Godalming, then afternoon tea and cake. Bakewell tart with a mug of tea.

Bad news, Café Mila will be closing at four o’clock, which is not good news. Indeed it is very bad news.

I would turn this around. In the winter stay open until five o’clock, in the summer stay open until at least six o’clock.

Today, and last Tuesday, it was still busy when I left a few minutes before 4-30.

When indy coffee shops close early, all they do is lose custom to the High Street chains, people then get into the habit and do not come back.

In Guildford in the summer Glutton & Glee are turning people way when they close at five o’clock. Their loss, Harris + Hoole gain.

Afternoon tea at Café Mila

For afternoon tea at Café Mila, a Bakewell tart and cup of tea.

The Bakewell tart was ok on its own, but it really needed cream or ice cream to go with it.

Followed by a zinger, which for some reason was a different colour to usual, red and yellow, not green, and tasted different.

Very amusing, a visit from one of the staff at fake indie coffee shop Harris + Hoole (aka Tesco) who thought after two days train, knew better how to make coffee.

I have suggested that for next Staycation Live Music Festival next year, Café Mila has a stall, as do not wish to see a repeat of this year, tacky ice cream, burger and doughnut vans. It would also be a good idea for Music in the Park, signs to Café Mila for afternoon tea.

Café Mila has books to read, books to take away. Usually I leave books. They must prove popular, as I never see them again. Today I picked up A Delicate Affair. I was quite pleased with the find, as I had intended to pick up a copy when it was half price, but now at a fiver off, too expensive.
