Mother's Day and North Point Cafe

Yesterday, Herself and Miss Eagle did their Mother's Day ritual and visited the North Point Cafe. The North Point Cafe across from the beach at the end of North Road in Brighton is a puppy friendly place.
As can be seen from the picture pile above, there were all manner of canine friends at North Point. Of course, we had our FootFoot - a miniature Fox Terrier - with us. Herself is leashing him. We asked to sit at the back of the paved outdoor area. Behind this is a lawn area and then an area of dirt with lots of gnarled, seaside trees where dogs are leashed. Nice silver bowls are available and jugs of water to fill them. Our seating backed on to the lawn area, so when we had finished eating Herself got FootFoot and he was able to be with us. All very civilised for him and for us. One of the wonderful things about taking a dog to North Point is that it is always a great conversation starter. So, as usual, we were soon in conversation with a woman at the next table who had brought the beautiful Sebastian. (See post above) If you are not a dog lover, it might be best to sit inside - but North Point can get crowded so beggars can't always be choosers. A mother and daughter couple came and sat next to us. All the dogs were well behaved except for a Red Setter who barked quite frequently. The mother and daughter left. So if you find babies in restaurants a bit much - you might also find the pooches at the Point are not for you either. We began with Pink Champagne. Herself selected the Smoke Salmon Stack which she thoroughly enjoyed. Miss Eagle's Vegetarian Ciabatta looked a little overwhelmed by the greenery but it was quite delicious.
For afters, it was Blueberry Cheesecake for Herself and a Lemon/Lime Pie for Miss E.
Then a Mocha for Miss E and a Cappuccino for Herself.
We highly recommend the pooch friendly North Point Cafe. We enjoyed our meal and the ambiance. We'll see you again next year, North Point, if not before.
