Broadstairs Baby!


So after our day of shopping and breakfasting in Canterbury we decided to head to Broadstairs to check out the food festival there. The weather was lovely and sunny so a perfect day to be by the beach. It was the first time any of us had been to Broadstairs which is a shame as it's such a lovely seaside town!

We picked up a number of items from the food festival and I bought a few treats for Robert who was spending the rest of the day in the office working.Broadstairs10Broadstairs05We arrived fairly late to the food festival so most of the stalls were low on stock or were packing up for the day so I wasn't able to get as much as I was hoping to. I was really hoping that the pie company that had been at Canterbury festival would be at Broadstairs, as I haven't been able to stop thinking about the steak and ale pie we bought from them. Unfortunately no pies, but mum and dad did get some cider and stalls still had some tasters out which is always a win.Broadstairs03We were still really full from breakfast but there was a really sweet little pop-up tea shop at the food festival so we shared a couple of slices of cake and tea. Who can say no to tea and cake? Mum loved the earl grey blend they had that we hunted down their tea shop, Bessie's Tea Parlour, on the high street to buy some for her to take home.Broadstairs08We're looking forward to our next trip to Broadstairs to explore the town a little more, and probably have some more tea and cake. Well who can say no to cake?
