Cakeadoodledo….Devon

If you’ve managed to read more than one of my blog posts or know me at all then you will already know that I LOVE CAKE! Cake is my idea of a treat, an invited guest to my table anytime, any day and the most perfect accompaniment to a girlie catch up.

Always in search of the best coffee shops, bakery’s and cake sellers around, I take a cake date very seriously. Last Saturday it was time for a visit back to one of my favourite cakey spots..Cakeadoodledo..I mean ‘cake’ features in the name so clearly you aren’t going to be disappointed!

Kate the owner has 2 shops and is often spotted baking alongside serving her customers so already you know you are in safe hands! We chose to go to the café based at Quickes cheese farm near Crediton, its out of the city, with a perfect outdoors play area for Sonny to catch some fresh air or a lovely inside toy corner for those not so sunny days.

I have been to Cakeadoodledo a handful of times and there are so many other options rather than cake, fancy a fresh local full English to set you up for the day or a heart warming homemade soup?? With the choice of sugary treats extensive, all homemade and presented beautifully, you WILL  have to be aware it will take you about half an hour to chose a slice!

I must say as its something really important to me that Kate makes her cafes so child friendly, she interacts with the kids and makes sure there is a real family vibe, so so important when braving any form of eating out with a child!

 

A visit teamed with 2 of my besties and a toddler who decided he was going to be a gem that afternoon was a little piece of heaven!

I recommend you try this gem of a spot or head to the smaller Cakeadoodledo if you are in Exeter city centre.

Let me know which slice you pick!

Time for a date night…

Date night, I love the idea but am crap at following up the concept! Ian and I last had a ‘date’ back in January for his birthday, we’ve since had valentines and my birthday both of which we opted for a cosy night in, they were lovely don’t get me wrong, nights in are my favourite after all but they quickly turn into us both being on our phones and becoming part of everyday routine.

It was time to get that over due date night in the diary and with the bank holiday approaching it was a perfect time for Sonny to enjoy sleeping at Grannies whilst we went out for some delish food and maybe the odd drink or two in the sunshine!

After having children the simple concept of just getting out of the door without a little one in tow is so strange, it feels so freeing! Dressing up is a nice feeling too, how often do we just get home and put our comfies on?? It was nice to get smartened up, get the lippie out and not having to take a massive rucksack with me!

For once our dinner time discussion wasn’t all about Sonny, it was phone free (apart from obligatory food pics) and relaxed.

Of course we promised ourselves we would book another one in and this time I’m determined to not leave it another 5months plus it doesn’t have to be an evening, a casual stroll childfree or a breakfast date would be just as nice!

Do you have any date night plans?

Lusty Glaze Beach…Newquay

Lusty Glaze has been mentioned to me for a long time now, lots of friends have described it as a MUST  place to go when in Newquay therefore, its been on my ‘list’ for a long time. As we were holidaying nearby, it was the perfect opportunity for Ian and I to slip off and enjoy a lunch date together whilst Sonny was thoroughly spoilt by his grandparents.
