IMGP1113_rs

I think I want to be adopted into an Italian family. It’s not the first time I have thought this either, but it was just reinforced having walked away from the 50th birthday celebration at Port Pizza Bar (aka Carmine and Co). 50 years is a long time for a restaurant to exist, and to not just survive but thrive ...

It is interesting to see how the market for coffee is maturing and developing in the last few years.
