9th Day of Christmas - Visiting The Coffee Corner

 Hello Everyone,

"On The Twelve Days of Christmas, Miss Holly will be visiting Regent Street to bring joy and wonder during the magical time of Christmas. "

Waking up to a rainy day on Sunday morning, Miss Holly decided to stay indoors keep warm and enjoy her kitchen while baking scrumptious goodies for Christmas. Her favorite were the Christmas Puddings and fruit cakes. 

As the afternoon passed, and the rain halted, she decided to go to her favorite coffee shop for a hot chocolate.   Manuel was a perfectionist when it came to his delicious pastries and cakes. He offered a variety of coffees and his hot chocolate was the best in town.  Before she left she decided to take one of her freshly baked Christmas Cakes that she just finished decorating.

The Coffee Corner was a very small shop and most of the time it got overwhelmed with crowds that want to be served. Thankfully today, it wasn't the case. The people decided to stay indoors because of the rain.  There was only Manuel and Mr. Thorton one of regulars that visited the shop.

Miss Holly stepped inside and the shop smelled of cinnamon and coffee.  She sat on one of the stools and presented the Christmas Cake to Manuel.  She knew that Manuel did better cakes than she did but she was sure that he would enjoy it just as much.

Manuel was so pleased and thankful to Miss Holly for being so thoughtful. He asked her what did she like to have. Miss Holly with a smile replied with the usual; a piece of 'Black Forest' and a Hot Chocolate with cream to go with it. 

Manuel was quick to server the young lady and told her that today it was on the house. She thanked him for his generosity.  The rain started to pour again but Holly was happy as can be looking outside of the window, being warm and cosy with her yummy hot chocolate and cake.

That is all for today.  Tomorrow Miss Holly has quite the task to visit 'Matquel's Antiques & China Shop', so make sure to keep tuned.

Take care and see you soon.
