    My sister is over from South Africa for 2 weeks and has already done all the tourist things on a previous visit so today we did something different.
    I know we have a few cat lovers on this forum so thought I would share here.

    We went to visit Lady Dinah's Cat Emporium in Bethnal Green. It's basically a posh cafe with tea and cake and cats. Very enjoyable. 1.jpg 1.jpg 2.jpg 3.jpg 4.jpg 5.jpg 6.jpg 7.jpg 8.jpg 9.jpg 10.jpg

    How random, but cool. I'd go there, I like cats.
    Do you say it the right way or the posh way? :D

    Also, a controversial topic, I see you went with the Cornish method of applying the jam and cream, the correct answer. :lol:

    I say it the correct way, scone rhymes with gone :nod:

    Also I subscribe to the Devon school, purely for the fact that it's easier to spread jam on clotted cream than vice versa :thumb:

    Dammit I think I'm going to crave scones until I have one! Better get baking... :drool:

    But then it's really difficult to spread out the cream! It just squishes the jam out to the sides :p

    Just make sure you adhere to the local way of doing things if you're ever down that neck of the woods. :fool:

    Aww, I would enjoy visiting a cat cafe - they're beautiful cats, (should say that quietly, otherwise I risk offending our two lads.)

    Well, just to throw in my five-pennyworth... I pronounce "scone" either way, depending upon whom I happen to be chatting with. But I grew up with "scone" to rhyme with "cone."

    As for the jam and cream debate, lol, I usually go with jam first, followed by a generous dollop of cream. Mmm, so much squidgey goodness. :D

    Looks like a good café.

    I was over that way last Wednesday and Saturday, working in Oaklands School.
