Shopping Capital

People always say that London is full of shops and people wanting to purchase stuff,  but I always find it over priced and overrated for its shopping. We ending up spending a large part of the day shopping guide following breakfast in Chelsea and a walk along the high line. 

 

Not mine, but my first breakfast in NYC ever was the same as this -  18 years ago

Breakfast was had at The Dish on 8th Avenue. A small space but wonderful food served in a pleasant atmosphere. I forgot to take a snap of my breakfast burrito but it was good. Above is the waffle and bacon my son had. Following the breakfast we visited the Levi store and the Asics store, before a stroll along the High line. Being Sunday it was busy and so we dropped down to grab a drink from a cafe, La Grainne Cafe. Although not terribly hungry  I managed to sink a couple of Duvel beers and also had a Crepe Flambee.

Crepes are great for a quick bite,  although the children needed something more filling.

We headed for the serious shopping following our restocking and headed off on the subway to Prince St/Spring St/Broadway area. Not sure how we managed to spend 3 hours in the area, especially when I didn't get anything for me. 3 hours shopping is more than anyone should take,  so I needed refreshments. Calling in at the Spring Street Natural for a couple of cocktails and some desserts made for a welcome pitstop.

We headed back to the hotel for a shower and break from all that shopping. It's been hot in the city with it reaching 88 degrees today and scheduled to be hotter tomorrow.
