by guest columnist Gilly Gant:
On closer inspections my sniffer figured what must be donuts, quite possibly hot chocolate and there was surely something else sugary inside as well. The sign-age said “Short and Sweet” and the atmosphere was amazing. Walking into a; what I can only describe as ‘Friend-esq’ and Vintage; atmosphere I was greeting with warm smiles, an offering to take my coat and was told to sit wherever I would be most comfortable.
Pondering the menu sitting on the table in front of me I saw the most colorful array of baked goods and sweet drinks anyone with a sweet tooth could ask for plus the Bakers Item of the day, which is apparently, whatever the Bakers decide to tack onto the menu for the day.
So, whilst I was sitting in my arm chair in front of the fire, trying my best to ignore the couple canoodling on the couch next to me I noticed a few people walking up and down the stairs next to the bar, booking appointments for salon treatments, massages, I honestly couldn’t quite fathom it. Taking a tentative step away from my comfortable fire side arm chair I went up, and saw, a menu for Salon service, the whole lot, Hair Styling, Manicures, Massages and by Lord they even had a tanning bed.
So with a full tummy and gaining confidence that this was probably my dream come true I booked myself in for a light tanning session followed by a manicure.
By far one of the more enjoyable experiences I’ve had, and located conveniently behind the D8 Row houses.
