Update: this place is now closed
Psst... Come here, I've been keeping a secret away from you guys for quite a while now. My good friend E. always knows when I'd like a place and she told be about the Bell and Pot during the summer. I've been there a few times now but never blogged about it.
The Bell and Pot is a quirky cafe with a gorgeous interior. A soon as you enter the place you see the long wooden counter with the food on display and several colourful lampshades above it.
E. has been a vegetarian for a while now so she ordered the Green House, a sandwich with avocado, home dried plum tomato, red onion marmalade, basil feta and baby gem cos (€7). She ate it all without sharing a single bite, so that's probably a good sign.
The sandwiches are quite big, wrapped in pretty paper and served with a side salad.
I went for a meatier option, the Bell and Pot Rubin. A sandwich of pastrami, fennel infused red sauerkraut, mixed leaves and American mustard. I thought €7 was a bit much but it was actually a big and tasty sambo with plenty of pastrami in it.
After my lunch I admired the vintage decor.
There is a cosy little corner with armchairs and a sofa for serious conversations.
There are also 2 amazing looking armchairs where you could easily sit for hours.
I have to go back to try more items off the menu but I can already say I have a big café crush. I hope it doesn't get too crowded after I let out the secret, leave some room for me please!
