Found myself in Mamma Whites yesterday, where you get American style pancakes and stuff for not too much money. They've got a new all day breakfast menu, where you order 6 things, get a stack of pancakes and a cup of tea with it, for £7.50.
We were waiting for the food, when the drinks came out, and I was shocked to find that my tea had a small man in it!
Apparently this is a loose leaf tea infuser, where 2000 perforations in his trousers let the flavour flood out. You can get them on Amazon, it seems. His body posture is rather slumped and resigned, but he has a smile on his face.
The pancakes and food arrived, and it was enough to totally stuff you. Simple food, but really nicely done.
You're getting a fair old bit for your £7.50.
I'm not doing a puff piece because they asked me to, not at all. In fact, their presence on social media isn't enough for a business like this. But I've always liked this little place and I've always wanted it to do well - so many small cafes like this have been set up, then died a death in Newark.
I don't want i to happen to one where I really like the food!
