This is part of the cafe at Morris and James in Matakana,
many a good lunch has been had here over the years.
(early in the morning)
This is one of their new designs which found its way to the back of the
station wagon to come home with me and join many "friends" from the same
pottery works that I have been collecting over the years.

I use these as my "test" in a new cafe,
are the eggs still runny, how is the bacon,
how is the hollandaise, how are the buns
(although I like to see hash browns on offer),
how is the presentation ?
A simple dish that can go so horribly
wrong , like the time it came with no hollandaise what !!!
These rated well and I especially liked the layer of crushed herbed potato.
Excellent flat whites also – to those outside NZ and Australia
the nearest would be a double espresso cappuccino without the foam.
You have not had good coffee till you have had one of these, helped
along by the excellent quality of milk in New Zealand.

Found this little guy outside on the path completely
conked out , mid winter , no food.
So I brought him inside for some of the real stuff made by honey bees.
Last seen on a sunny bench in the garage (where I put him and his honey) doing
what looked like bee stretching exercises.
I'm very allergic to normal bee stings so hopefully this chap won't
come back with his friends !
