A day in the life: Sundays in Stortford

Peach iced tea, scrummy breakfasts and leisurely walks...
Pretty much my favourite thing to do on a Sunday lately. Have tea and breakfast and go for long walks in Bishops Stortford. A small town located in Hertfordshire with tons of character and some absolutely gorgeous tea rooms. If you're a lover of shabby chic style, homemade cakes and loose leaf teas then it's obviously a must that you pay this place a visit..

Me and my boyfriend popped into Bishops Stortford one warm Sunday morning for breakfast, and stumbled across South Street Pantry. We ordered peach iced tea, (which you make yourself with a tea strainer, a big glass of ice cubes and some peach juice, cute!) I ordered smoked salmon scrambled eggs on gluten free toast which was super tasty. He ordered american style pancakes with bacon and syrup.  (If you fancy something a little tamer they also serve american style pancakes covered in blueberries.) Both of us really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere is great. They serve tea or coffee in mismatch tea cups and teapots and the place is full of atmosphere. Another reason I like to visit South Street Pantry is because they serve home-made gluten free cakes and they include gluten free bread on the menu so people like me don't have to miss out at all! I really recommend this tea room particularly for a wholesome breakfast on a sunny Sunday morning or perhaps tea and cake one afternoon with a friend.

After breakfast and some laughs over iced tea and scrummy eggs, we took a walk down to the park where there are some lovely areas to walk around beside the canal and stop for a rest on a bench in the warm sunshine. We were lucky enough to pick one of the nicest days so far this year to spend the day here and it was almost like summer, sitting by  the canal and enjoying an ice cream, with loads of sprinkles and sauces, of course. Who could resist?

All in all, Bishops Stortford in one of my favourite places to visit, rain or shine. There are so many little known places to visit and explore and the high street is full of old character. If you know of any spots to visit in this beautiful town, comment below and let me know. Pop in to South Street Pantry soon and try some of their gluten free treats or a pot of freshly brewed tea for two, you'll thank me for it!
