Coffeeneuring #6 2012-11-04

Grand Central Bakery makes GREAT bread.   They also make a surprisingly good latte.  On November 4th, I rode the 14.8 miles  to Grand Central to meet Theo, Ed & Asta for coffee and breakfast.  We were planning to ride the Lunch at Nick's 200K permanent after breakfast, so coffee and some solid food seemed advisable.

I arrived to find everyone else already there, including Ken (the perm owner who needed to give us cards & waivers) and Rob, with whom we'd ridden the Verboort Sausage Populaire the day before.   They both live within a few blocks of Grand Central.

(L to R) Ed, Theo, Asta Ken & Rob.
Service was slooooooow, so despite wanting something warm, I ended up with just a latte and a jammer.  A very tasty jammer, but not the warm breakfast I was hoping for.

Latte served by the pint!

Ed bought bread to sustain him through the 200K.  Was quite amusing to see it sticking out of his handlebar bag half the day!

Now, don't go eating that all at once...
