Blueberry Hill, my dream bistro

I've been dreaming again of having a little bistro. I would call it Blueberry Hill and it would be lovely - having the comfort and simple pleasure of popping around a friend's for coffee, there would be a farmhouse kitchen feel to it, with scrubbed wooden tables with benches at either side - perfect for office or birthday parties - and smaller, more intimate table settings, each with a jug of freshly picked meadow flowers. In the morning, there'd be glossy baking pastries, bowls of fruit salad, good rich coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice. Then, there would only be a few things on the menu, all seasonal and freshly made. Think crab, fennel and chilli linguine as one of the mains, then a choice of gooey salted caramel chocolate fondant, English pear tarte tatin or apple pie creme brulee, served with clotted cream ice cream or homemade custard, speckled with grainy flecks of vanilla pod seeds. A girl can dream...
