warming snack for a winter day

Cheese and tomato toastie with salad on the side - great food in this little cafe.

The toilet facilities did not live up to the same standard. The door marked ‘Toilet’ gave onto not a toilet but a steep windy staircase with shallow steps and the handrail not evident all the way up, then a few more straight steps plus a corridor leading to the loo.

The smart brass knob on the inside of the door was almost falling off so I dare not close it in case it fell off leaving me shut inside (being claustrophobic) and the loo seat was wobbly.

I did not complain as probably they are, nearly, doing the best they can in the old premises but we shall not be visiting there again.

What would you have done?!
I'd have mentioned the door handle I think. Delicious photo

Beautiful shot of this delicious looking toastie. I would have mentioned it, imagine someone really gets stuck in there ;-)

That looks yummy. Yesterday I had the classic grilled cheese and tomato soup but somehow I’ve never thought of adding tomato to the sandwich. Probably because the tomato we get this time of year is flavorless and the meal is designed for cold weather.

Delicious image...nice clarity and details

Oh, that looks lovely. Especially the melting cheese!

Looks very tasty, Hazel. I think I'd made a remark # the knob inside the door.

Looks delicious.
November 22nd, 2019  
That's beautiful and so very tempting!
November 22nd, 2019  
Mmmmm, yummy
November 22nd, 2019  
Probably exactly the same! Food looks appetising though!

Mrs S said she would have gone to the Gents - this gent would have looked for a quiet corner of the car park... both behaviours are acceptable in France ;-))

Please to tell Mrs S that this café is quite continental: the ladies is the gents and vice versa! (one loo)

Tasty capture Hazel sorry the same could not be said for the facilities:)
November 22nd, 2019  
it amuses me that you have this beautiful photograph of a meal and your text was about the loo. :-) aces!

I love tomatoes in my grilled cheese (toasty).
November 22nd, 2019  
Looks very tasty shame about the loo.
November 23rd, 2019  
That looks good enough to eat. Sorry about the difficulty with the facilities. I would have definitely said something. The stairs alone sound like an accident waiting to happen.

Beautifully photographed.

Cool picture.

The toasties (melted cheese in the states) look very yummy. As for the facilities, I might have complimented them highly on their wonderful food but mentioned the issues gently. Some attention to them might save them some business.

ooks like a lovely meal for the day.
November 24th, 2019  
the food looks good , perhaps a review on tripadvisor commenting on the poor toilet facilities
November 25th, 2019  
Well, my mum always checks out the toilet facilities in a restaurant before ordering any food!!

@will_wooderson

Well there is that consideration!
November 26th, 2019  
This meets your dietary requirements does it? Re the facilities, you might consider a portable 'potty'!

It was Ray’s but yes I could eat it OK. And the way things are going I’m getting close to not being able to walk any reasonable distance but I draw the line at a ‘what you said’!
November 30th, 2019  
@quietpurplehaze Lucky you to be able to draw lines and not cross them!
November 30th, 2019  
@lostphojo

Easy! I think!!
