Taking our furry child for a walk down Simonstown main road we were pleasantly surprised to see the lights on in the shop! :-) Upon closer inspection we noticed that there's a steady stream of water running from under the door and down the pavement...the Espresso machine had all it's nozzles on open and was overflowing! However no damage was done and we ended up, after minimal trial and error managing to make a capuccino...which wasn't half bad! The display fridge and overhead lights are working although the ancient wiring and antique switches made for some interesting speculation as to which swithes matched which lights...:-) Now the heat turns up a few degrees to get the premises customer fit by the weekend! Yay...Bella Vegan evolves just that tiny bit further.

Finally a premises has been located...right in the heart of Simonstown. It's winter and the tourist season hasn't arrived, mind you neither have the Whales! They're usually here by now. Wonder if the Soccer World Cup has anything to do with it? :-) I digress...Have not done any cooking at home what with all the meetings...the bane of getting involved with Capitalists, and landlords! However, I've remained pretty much true to my socialist roots and, at least, drove a bargain...of sorts! Ok, ok...I could have done alot better but I'm the new kid on the block! We begin trading tomorrow (on a small scale while we empty the shop of antiques to make space)...delicious Chessy Muffins...trying out the very expensive Cheesly Vegan cheese...so these will not go cheap! Also a pot of hearty Spicey Pumpkin Soup, Seed loaf, assorted teas and Muffins..Cranberry, Banana and Date and of course, coffee, Hot Chocolate and espresso... I hope to see you there!<3
