Yuh, motorcyclist café/diner all the way in Zone 3, North London. Not my idea, it was all Ellen’s doing. Elface, you may have a beard and a beer belly but why drag me into it!?

Actually it was research for her design-a-restaurant brief. That place was definitely intimidating with all the buff bikers stomping around, emitting leather scented testosterone like exhaust fume, but somehow I felt content to be in the company of a community that is formed purely out of passion for one common thing: motorcycles. Personally, passion seems like the healthiest form of expression in a human being, a true gift from God.

The place is called The Ace Cafe, their jacket potato is the shizzle.

  20. ps, you have such a good eye!! the colour from the tights are actually the result of bad photoshop skills (excuse-I’m a math student!;) to add brightness to my even worse photos, really thinking about getting a DSLR this summer, maybe the nikon D40? since it’s kinda cheap ;)

  25. I love the jacket & vest on you :) Sniff, I miss the sunshine already. Umm… you ate in a biker cafe? that is slightly hilarious. although i’ve had my fair share of being dragged to random and slightly sketchy places by friends too – like the weird underground japanese restaurant somewhere that recommended we order “cuttlefish”, which ended up being a little cup of pink-purple slightly neon and probably radioactive gloop. I get what you mean about getting presents for yourself but paying for them hahaha. I think the best solution is to go shopping in the actual store but have it gift-wrapped, for yourself. xoxo

  28. i love the matching of the pants and jacket. bikers always scare me a little. probably because motercycles freak me out, I flinch everytime one revs up.

  34. so i’m answering on a different post too ;D
    and i’d like to write also something about your outfit: LOVE the shorts and shoes! :)

    i know what you mean, hehe, about accent for example. i have just the same problem with english^^ you know, we all speak our native language in best way :) but i believe that ‘a training makes a master’ (don’t know if the idiom exists in english too).
    i live in the south Poland in a small city – Jasło. you probably don’t know this city, it’s near Rzeszów and Krosno :) so great your family lives in Warsaw and you can visit Poland more often and longer than for example tourists from another countries :)
    it’s a bit too long comment, przepraszam :D i love talking with people who know Poland ;) it’s my pseudo-patriotism i guess ;))

    cieszę się, że poznałam Twojego bloga! masz świetny styl :)
