Yesterday was a revisit to the lovely fishing village of Pittenweem, Fife with my Mum and Aunty. We were mainly going to collect Mum’s raffle prize that she won from Pittenweem’s Arts Festival in August but also had in mind a wee visit to a chocolate haven.
The Gallery where we collected the prize from had lots of lovely craftsmanship items. The Coach House Gallery, Pittenweem is an absolute treasure trove of gifts – it was hard not to get carried away, but I did settle on this little and very cute stained glass Robin!
We then had lunch down at the harbour at Larachmohr, where the do seafood platters and a nice Cullen Skink & sea bream.
After having lunch, we walked back up (a very steep hill) to the High Street to get sweet and a coffee at The Cocoa Tree Café – Yes this is THE chocolate haven I was referring to in the first paragraph!!
Ohhhh my! You can smell the chocolate and boy, it smells good! I settled for a scone and cappuccino whilst Mum and Aunty had carrot cake and chocolate cake. I also bought some cocoa nibs and 70% Dark chocolate callets, with the thought of using them for baking.
As the Fish shop had shut for the day in Pittenweem, we were given a tip to go to the neighbouring town of St Monan’s to get some fresh fish for tomorrow’s dinner. Head to G&J Wilson at the top of St Monan’s in the Industrial Estate to grab some fishy delights!
St Monan’s is a place I would like to go back and explore a bit more. Particularly the windmill and the breakwater (known to the locals as “the blocks”). And lunch at the Smokehouse – where I’ve seen photos of a good lunch of lobster.
So that’s my coastal mini adventure of Pittenweem and St Monan’s for the time being but I’m sure it won’t be long until I pop back!
