Tifamade

We love this from Tifamade – sandwiches and cakes on two wheels. Tiffany Iung started delivering sandwiches in and around Paris in 2010 when she was looking for a way to combine her two passions: feeding people and riding her bike.

It’s homemade food with ingredients carefully chosen from the farmer’s market, all wrapped up in ecological packaging. The sandwiches and cakes are presented in a lovely old suitcase, which is very cute indeed.

For a cool and quirky alternative closer to home, we love The Cake Cafe in Dublin

It’s the first time since the annual measure was created 13 years ago that Coca-Cola has been knocked off the top spot – the soft drinks giant slipped to third, with Google taking second place.

 

 

The Gathering at Glenveagh Castle

The Gathering at Glenveagh Castle  took place yesterday – a family fun day complete with treasure hunt, face painting, kids crafts and delicious home baking and cakes from the Tearoom.

For those of you not familiar with Donegal, or for those who haven’t visited the place in a while, Glenveagh Castle is a must-see, (check out the reviews on TripAdvisor). It’s described as a remote and hauntingly beautiful wilderness in the heart of the Derryveagh Mountains and one of the best ways to experience its beauty is to walk The Bridle Path, pictured below. Bike rentals are also a good option and local company Grassroutes has everything you need to make it happen.
