THIS. This is how you do doughnuts and coffee. Unique sweet treats, super strength caffeine and a beautiful aesthetic. Hideout Coffee Company has it all.
The doughnuts are out of this world. Go now and go early, they sell out so quickly so, do not go unprepared!
I visited after it had been open for six days, and it’s been selling out every single day. For a very good reason too, those doughnuts are AMAZING.
And yes, they are ‘The Finest Coffee Perverts’ in Portsmouth!

Going out for breakfast is such a treat and when we were in Polzeath we found a fab spot to start our day right.
It’s always hard in a new place to know where to try as it’s always a bit of a gamble.
Thankfully we landed on our feet when we strolled into the Tubestation in Polzeath – it was a blinking marvellous find. And, as I later found out, it was voted Red Bull’s ‘number 1 best surf café’ in UK and Ireland.

The Winchester Orangery has recently opened and it’s as gorgeous as its Instagram indicated. Not only is it filled to the rafters with stunning material flowers but the black and white tiles, chic counters and glass topped tables will make you feel more like you’re on the King’s Road instead of the pretty lanes that frame Winchester Cathedral.
We started Good Friday right with a hearty breakfast, plenty of coffee and orange juice to set us up for a glorious four days free from work, commitments and poor weather!
Take a look around the newbie to Winchester’s foodie scene in a few of my snaps, I say a few…there’s ruddy loads. I couldn’t help myself it was so pretty and the staff were more than obliging – yes, I think I was indulged!

It’s safe to say I’m completely obsessed with bao buns. After having them at Wagamamas my obsession grew during my travels to Australia last year. I tried to eat as many as possible in China Town in Melbourne, in Sydney and Perth!
I haven’t found many places in the UK that do them yet, especially not in the south! Although I’m sure there’s loads of places that do them in London before you start @-ing me.
Anyway, you’ll imagine my surprise when Henry and I were walking through Southsea looking for somewhere to eat and stumbled on Two Doors Down. Continue reading “Bao buns at Two Doors Down in Southsea”
