The Girls Can't Help It!

Hubby and I ventured to the right end of town today - Ecclesall Road/Sharrow Road. I've mentioned before that this end of town still boasts lots of lovely independent shops, cafes, restaurants etc (although some of the chains are starting to pop up here now sadly). We had a special mission, but firstly, where should we eat?

There are so many really lovely cafes around here, its hard to choose.

I have to say, that this is one of my favourites and on this occasion it won again!!
I could eat the Grilled Haloumi Pitta Wrap every day - it is so tasty!
After lunch, we headed across to Pete Mckee's "Month of Sundays" Gallery to the opening of his new exhibition "The Girls Can't Help It". Once again the originals and prints are fabulous. I urge you strongly to head down and take a look if you can.
Pete had kindly laid on cup cakes (by the Fancie team - totally delish!). Each depicted one of the paintings. This was my hubby's fave . A Sheffield Wednesday fan has discovered that his girlfriend is a Sheffield United supporter!
A fabulous way to spend a cold rainy Saturday ! x

Ha, love that cupcake. Perhaps the equivalent of a Leeds Utd supporter dating a Man Utd fan. It looks like there's some lovely places to eat around that area, I'd be spoilt for choice.

You've certainly got a great selection of cafes. The halloumi pitta would be my choice too.

Yum, I absolutely love grilled haloumi but you rarely see it on offer in cafes. I could eat that every day of the week.

The cupcake is great:) Time for another visit to Sharrow I think, there are so many interesting little shops and for once I might treat myself to something to eat as well.

What a super day out. Smashing cake ! I never understood why hubby, a Scot, married an English girl...in the rugby, like most Scots, if England are playing, he'll support the other side !
