The Aubergine Café, West Kirby

Set in a sleepy side street called Crescent Walk in the coastal town of West Kirby on north-west corner of the Wirral Peninsula, the Aubergine Café is one of those wonderful cafés that you can’t help be keeping going back to again and again.

It warm, welcoming and friendly café, were the staff know their regular customers and chat to them like old acquaintances.

Charmingly decorated with whimsical wall plaques espousing life mottos and saccharin wisdom and beautiful ornaments and china.

We opted to sit inside, and not brave the wet weather by sitting out side in the covered area… despite the cozy and inviting look of the wicker furniture with its luxurious array of cushions and rugs.

Our lunch time visit was a much welcome break after our wild coastal walk from Moreton/Leasowe. We were spoilt for choice and in the end I opted for Grilled Goats Cheese on ciabatta with onion chutney

Great wholesome food in generous portions, filling the hungry amongst us. I was tempted by the Soup Sandwich combo which as Sweet Potato with Ginger and Lime.

Despite my every effort to be good and not over indulge, we couldn’t resist a slice of chocolate cake to share (a small compromise on not having cake or having a piece each). Again the choices exceed my imagination.

Stuck in the mud

What will 2013 hold for us?
Stuck in the mud #2013PAD

Will we be going places or will we be stuck in the past year’s mud? 

The new year is time to reflect on how to move forward and not to be held back.  2012 has been a strange time, leaving me feeling as there has been little momentum.  Now it’s time to move on. Here’s to 2013.

Happy New Year to you all.
