Today I´m going to show one of the most popular spot in Sweet Berry Valley, "The Blackurrant Café" that is run by the Periwinkle Rabbbit Family. Hope you like it!
Frasier Chocolate is always on time with his delivery, a basket full of delicious confectionery.
Alex can´t resist the temptation of grabbing something from the basket. The smell of freshly baked doughnuts, croissants, chocolate cake and cupcakes (these ones made by Teri) makes it hard to resist.
"Mmmm, simply perfect, Frasier" Alex complimented his friend while biting a doughnut.
"See you , Alex. I´ll be back tomorrow same time." Frasier waved good-bye. "Have a nice day, Frasier. Tell Teri that her cupcakes are becoming very popular" Alex said. "I will, she´ll be glad to know that" Fraiser answered.
Kate arrives at the Café carrying a load of fresh bread from "The Watermill Bakery".In the morning she takes the children to school and on her way back she stops at the bakery to buy bread to prepare the sandwiches they serve at the Café.
Then, Kate and Alex put a selection of the pastries and confectionery made by The Chocolates on a tray.
Sometimes she also bakes cinnamon muffins. Kate´s mother used to bake them every Saturday morning when she was a child and that smell brings her back nice childhood memories and puts her in good mood. The captivating smell of freshly baked muffins and freshly brewed coffee fills the air of the Café .
and everything seems to be ready to welcome the first customers.
Doctor Murdoch is always the first one to arrive. He likes to enjoy a quiet breakfast before going to "The Cottage Hospital" . This morning he odered fresh juice, coffee with cream and a muffin.
Lunch time is usually busy. Today The Dingle Sheep Family are having lunch together at the Café.What a nice choice!! filled bagel for Mum, filled croissant for Amanda , a traditional sandwich for Dad and a small sandwich for baby Katharina.
Riding on her trycicle made her hungry.
Apart from enjoying their coffee they also like having a chat with Alex. He´s very friendly.
The Café has also a take away service. It comes very handy when the villagers are busy and need to have something to eat .
Arthur Osborne from "The Country Market" is having a take away. Both, his wife Carol and himself can´t leave the store for a long time. Today, they put lots of articles at half price and they have lots of customers.
Tea time menu consists of a cup of tea or coffee, a sandwich and a cupcake. Very good value for money!
Tea time is a favourite for the Chocolate grandparents." Blackurrant cupcake please and a red berry tea for me, please!!" Patricia always reminds Kate.
Some days "The Blackurrant Café" is packed with customers. Alex and Kate enjoy their work and are pleased to serve their customers always with a smile but at times they consider the idea of employing some else to help them to give their customers a good service.
After a busy day, now it´s time to clean up.
At the weekend Rebecca and Oliver help their parents but during school days they only go to the Café in the evening after doing their homework." Can we have these sandwiches, mum?" they asked with a hungry look . "Of course, you can. They seem to be waiting for you. Only two sandwiches left". Kate replied.
When the Café is clean and tidy they are ready to go home. The Periwinkles deserve a nice family dinner and a relaxing evening. Don´t you think so?
As you can see I changed the decoration of the original building. In my opinion, it looked a bit plain with the creamy walls. It needed a bit of colour and I think it looks cosier this way.
When I started my collection, only a few months ago,this was one of the first buildings I wanted to own but it wasn´t available in Amazon Spain any more. I was over the moon the day I saw it on ebay. It was brand new and one of the "buy now" items and the best of all at a reasonable price(postage charges are the problem!)It also came with Teri Chocolate, that was my first sylvanian figure!(The very same day I also bought a very nice shop "The Country Market"also brand new and from the same seller.I went a bit overboard but no regrets!)
The Periwinkles are adorable. I like the way their name sounds. Periwinkle!
I like Sylvanian rabbit families and this one was on my wishlist from the very first time I saw them.Their clothes are lovely.
That´s all for today.
Many thanks for visiting and for your comments!
See you in my next post!
