What I did Last Weekend: My Birthday, Cosmeston, Milgi

Last Friday was my 32nd birthday (as you know if you caught last Friday’s post), and was one of those lovely crisp Autumn days (exactly the same as the day I was born according to my Mum and Dad when they regaled everyone with my birth story over dinner at the pub… thanks guys!), and started off – as most days do these days – with taking Bungle for a walk.Β  But instead of doing the usual stomp around the block, we hopped into the car and drove to Cosmeston, which was absolutely stunning in the morning Autumn sunshine.Β  πŸ™‚






It was a quiet one, but lovely all the same.Β  I opened presents, blew out candles and got stuck into a massive cinnamon bun, and then went to the pub for dinner with my family.


On Saturday I was invited down to Milgi on City Road to try out their breakfast menu.Β  As a restaurant that promotes themselves as being dedicated to “everyday plant-based eating”, this cheeky McDonalds, sticky cinnamon bun-scoffing gal wasn’t quite sure what to expect.Β  But I’d heard really good things, was excited to give it a try and you know what?Β  I loved every single bite and was stuffed by the time we left!

I had to try the Lavabread-fried Potatoes, complete with polenta toast, a fried egg and homemade ketchup.Β  It was absolutely massive, and even Sunny was surprised when I demolished the lot.Β  I also really enjoyed my cheeky Toffee Apple Collins and honestly was a little bit buzzed in the car on the way home (…which made getting stuck in match day traffic through Cardiff a bit more bearable!).


Sunny went for their Indian Breakfast which came with two massive Parantha and a hefty portion of Dal.Β  I couldn’t resist sneaking a bit of his Parantha – you guys know I cook a batch myself when the in-laws come to stay.Β  He went for their Autumn Garden Smoothie, with pear, banana, oats, cinnamon, vanilla and oat milk and I think even he was surprised how much he loved it.

If you’re looking for somewhere new for breakfast definitely give Milgi a try; I’m pretty sure a Saturday morning breakfast there could cure any hangover – not only are the portions massive, but the food’s tasty and pretty easy on the eyes too.Β  They serve breakfast on Saturdays and Sundays from 9am until midday.Β  πŸ˜‰

Happy weekend everyone!Β  x
