It sounds quite obsessive that I’ve been to Group Therapy 3 times in the last month! An old friend brought me there, and I started suggesting this quaint cafe everytime I met different groups of people, and trying as much of the menu I can. The nice thing about this place is that it has a menu with its staples (poached eggs, pies, 4-layer carrot cake etc) but has some changes every week. I haven’t managed to snap a photo of everything my friends and I have tried there, but here is a quick snapshot of some of it:
One of their most mentioned dishes online is their Poached Eggs (with thick toast, smoked salmon, gruyere, hollandaise). It’s simply delish! One of the best hollandaise I’ve tried, and not to mention the thick toast which was soft and fluffy. All the components blended well together to form yummy bites, and we couldn’t stop eating. Make sure to break the yolks early if you want it runny. The only drawback was it was a little heavy and rich with the sauce, but can be taken back a bit by putting some of it to the side.
We also had the Salmon sandwich, it was alright, sufficient and good enough, but I loved the couscous side salad, and came back subsequent times wanting more of the side salad, as weird as that sounds!
To end off one of our lunches, we had their much talked about Belgian Waffle with all the fixings. Very yummy, and very generous with the fruit and ice cream, prepare to share as its too much to eat after a meal there.
I’ve tried a bunch of other stuff here too, and I have no complaints about any of them. I highly recommend Group Therapy, its a great place to hang out and spend hours without feeling the pressure to get moving, and great food and drinks (too bad I’m not a big coffee drinker so I can’t help much there). Just do note that it’s only open for dinner on Friday and Saturday, so do make a note to drop by for brunch or lunch if you are on leave!

I’ve never been a big fan of Coach, but I’ve been a fan of the blog blushing ambition for a while now, and her photos. In many of her photos, shes carrying a sling coach bag, which I assumed it was vintage. When I was in USA and on etsy, I always keep a look out for these vintage coach sling bags, but the quality/price/colour is never a perfect fit (ie. good quality but high price and non ideal colour).
However, I started beginning to notice that this range of bag was called the Coach Willis Bag, so it made it easier to search, but I also found out that Coach has made a collection called Coach Classics, remaking and reissuing all the classic bags of yesteryear. And I would actually be happy to carry most of the leather bags on this page.
Best of all, they remade the Willis, and I ordered it almost immediately, and of course in British Tan. Yum! Best of both worlds, a vintage remake with all the colours available at a good price as well. I actually love a lot of the other remakes as well and would love to get my hands on them, but the Willis will do for now! Even though I’ve a bit slow on the curve, I just had to blog about these great vintage remakes Coach was doing, as you may not see these beauties for a long time after this season’s over.
