    Just when you think this place can’t get any more niche!

    Haha no it’s not a euphemism.

    Thanks I’ll try Whittard’s but was hoping for something a little less mainstream.

    You do know if you are given a location, there will be a dozen MAMILS on bikes waiting for you and your prospective date?
    Live commentary and heckling will commence.

    Cheers Andyl I’ve been looking at that list too. Wondering if anyone here had any first hand experience?

    Oh no….you’re right matt. I’m exposing myself to all sorts of potential embarrassment. I’d just like to make it clear I’m not going to any one of those cafes in that Time Out list. None of them at all.

    Going back years mid 80’s there used to be a niche cafe in earls court that was a hangout for writer and poets and it did great hot chocolate and with alcoholic twists, cannot for the life of me remember what it was called. Also seemed to be a lot of Kenny Everett lookalikes in biker clothes and Australians around that neck of the woods back then. 😯

    Meeting up with a lady tomorrow and I’m wondering which cafe / bar offers a wide range of quality hot chocolate drinks. Any help please?

    Paul Young does chocolate drinks but that might be mainly in the winter and the shops are small.
    i know a fair bit about the london coffee ‘scene’ but I’m struggling to think of nice cafes that do proper chocolate (as i dont drinkk it)
    beas of bloomsbury might? as might fortnums
    looking at that list above konditor & cook might be a better bet as they are a cafe/shop whereas rococo/paul young are quite small.

    this place in piccadilly evidently does godiva hot chocolate all year round

    Cheers guys. I have POF to thank for this. I have two choices now neither were mentioned above. One’s posh and the other not so much. I’ll post a review later 🙂 Has anyone actually met up after using Tinder?

    Was the chocolate thing your idea, or hers? If hers, expect a larger lass 🙂

    She’s Italian. I know she likes chocolate drinks from our messaging. The venue’s my idea. I like coffee she likes choccie. She’s running late though. I got the sweat on a moment ago thinking she’d be ruthless and stand me up but she’s on her way…..I want to wee!

    It’s been 5 hours with no response, so can only assume she has killed him, and is drinking hot chocolate out of his skull.

    Or they may be licking chocolate off each others intimate places…..

    No, no. There can be no other explanation that she was a nutbag, and is currently sawing his feet off to stick in the freezer.

    I would, if I may, read a poem for a our fallen comrade, RAGGATIP.

    What is your obsession with everyone on STW, bar yourself of course, being unable to deal/interact with the opposite sex, Hora?

    It’s things like this that make me scared of the internet, and the outskirts of Manchester.

    I have to confess to never having fallen in love on a STW ride nor had any experience [ beyond poor line choice/saddle too high] that made my balls tingle

    That was some poor line choice then….
    I have been a bit too far back off the saddle and made contact a couple of times, but that is what a good chamois if for…

    Cheers Jamie thanks for your poem haha. Well it went ok. Her breath stank a bit though. So I took her to Said to get a strawberry sundae. Couldn’t find any hot chocolate as I think it’s off season. Don’t think I’ll be seeing her again though as I didn’t get that feeling in my ballbags oh, and the stinky breaaath. The search continues….
