Just opened their first Scottish Store in Edinburgh, what a nightmare, folk queuing for hours, traffic mayhem, fights breaking out over queue jumping, police having to control the traffic, cars backed up around roundabouts and back onto the bypass !!!

 

I drive past it twice a day whilst working, never tried one myself, surely they cant be that good, anybody had one ?

SOunds the same as when they opened up the costa cafe drive thru on Chester's sealand road greyhound park. Traffic backed right the way up through 2 roundabouts towards the hospital, Purely so they could get an overpriced coffee :/

Yesterday the traffic congestion was not as bad as earlier in the week, hopefully it'll calm down shortly and I can buy one :)

There is a shop near Holborn, I've had one or two but they are not to my taste, I don't have a very sweet tooth (unless it comes to meringues and coconut).

 

I think they are going to open a concession in Wimbledon, and at Clapham Junction railway station, so I heard.

:jaw:

 

For that price I'd want one of their staff members to rock up to my house with the donuts, make the coffees and then do the washing up. There's a little place up town here that does 12 donuts for a quid, and you can have whatever topping you like (including kiwi syrup, which sounds revolting).

Keeps the fat people busy and out of the way in town so normal folk can walk at a normal pace while shopping.

 

I do hope they open on in my town.

It boggles my mind that people (anywhere!!!) collectively spent £60,000 on pastry things with a glaze on them.

To be fair, though, it doesn't beat the farm shop I was in the other weekend. They had a chocolate ball covered in smarties on a lollipop stick, stuck in a little terracotta pot (so it looked like a smartie topiary, for want of a better way of putting it). Price? A mere £7.45.

 

I remember, back in the day, when farm shops were good value. It were all fields round here then. :razz:

You want an expensive farmshop? Hawrden farm shop around the corner from me is astronomical in price.

 

One of their current breakfast options that is well known. Breakfast for two, two small sausage sandwiches ( 1 sausage on each), and a Latte and Tea. Almost £14 .00 The size of the drinks are the same size you would get for a small drink in tesco for £1.

I didn't venture into the cafe at the one I went to, Renegade. I think it's safe to assume that a sausage sandwich and cuppa there would be about a third of my weekly shopping budget.

Well, i can tell you from experience, when i was in a job that paid expenses ( wish i had that job again), a party of 4 for lunch, which was a small chicken sandwich with salad each, and a bottle of water, was almost £45.

I suppose it's all supply and demand though, to be fair. If people are prepared to pay it, they'll keep charging it.

I loooove the original glazed ones :) They're much better if you can get them hot rather than from the chillers in Tesco etc. On our very occasional trips to London we'll nip to Harrods to browse the food halls (aka gawp at people who are genuinely doing their weekly shop there), and you are often offered a freebie off the rack whilst queing for one (yes, we have still bought them afterwards!)

 

I have worked out a very close recipe to them though, so I can make a ton in the comfort of my own home. Which is handy really, cos if I make them and eat them I can't get out the house anyway :D
