After two weeks of the same thing, Ana and decided it would be nice to celebrate her last full day with a real breakfast. I had seen Bluebird Cafe from my time watching Made in Chelsea so I wanted to check it out. The place is really good, even with a limited breakfast menu. I had a bowl of granola with crumpets and Ana had a full English. The place lived up to that Made in Chelsea look and the food was good. Very American though, well except for the Crumpets. Lol

I fully aware what time it is. Yes it is morning, but once again the lore of pretty baked goods tempts me into a shop. We walked past this place on our way to Blue Bird Cafe and I told Ana that we would have to investigate when we came back.

Well, we came back. And we bought something. Hey I figure we could eat it for lunch or snack. We've had a good long week. We deserve it.

Words cannot describe how special King's Cross is to me. This is where I became a Londoner. It was not the most glamorous, it was not the prettiest, but it was our home. A huge part King's Cross is the station. When I was in London (both times), the entire station was under construction. This is the first time I've come here and seen it in all its glory. It is gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous. All I could do was bask in it's beauty.

It took us 30 minutes and I was probably the oldest person who actually took a picture there. However I have officially tried to get to Platform 9 3/4! When I knew I was coming back this was a must on my list of places to visit. First because I love the movies and books and second because it was in my London hood! It is my duty to do it!

I'm glad I did it too. The wait? So, so worth it. And yes I did choose Slytherin's scarf. I sorted myself into it. Mwah... ah... ah.

On our walk to Bluebird, we walked in front of this cafe and saw the beautiful desserts in the window. I could not resist the beautiful things so after Bluebird Ana and I bought a raspberry tart and honey cake. We did not eat them right away though because we wanted them for "our lunch." My plan is to get the one offs out of the way and take the Tube to get the max out of the day. And this is really the last day with everyone will be together.

This is it. THIS. IS. WHERE. THE. MAGIC. HAPPENED. It is so weird to come back here after 11 years. It looks the same. Exactly as it did when I left. The neighborhood might have changed, but Dinwiddy is intact. I know that change happens, but to find things in as you left it is so rare. I know this won't always be the case so I want to be able to come back and see it everytime I come back until it changes. I heart you Dinwiddy!

While visiting my old stomping grounds in King's Cross, Ana and I stumbled on this little coffee shop on Caledonian Road. This shop definitely wasn't here when I lived here. It looked legit with its minimalistic decor and bearded baristas. I ordered a black pour over coffee, which was one of the few places I could actually get it. It was really good and really well done. I liked it. It made me wish this place where here when I was at SOAS.
