The coffee at Proud Mary is undisputedly good. But what is a must order for milkshake aficionados - that cacao, peanut butter & banana milkshake. Yes for breakfast. It’s intense yet light, not overly creamy & frothy and all three flavours chocolate, peanut butter & banana are boldly vying for your attention. Please do yourselves a favour and have one. Better yet, coax someone into having one so you can have a sip.

I do believe this might be my first encounter with ricotta hotcakes, and I had expected something light. These were quite thick despite looking quite airy, and dense to bite. What was splendid, that gorgeous rose mascarpone. And those sweet sticky saffron pears.
