Having arrived in Wick, Caithness, the previous evening, I set out to explore. The harbour is always a good place to start. A sunny morning, several boats were moving in the harbour, so I found a convenient parking spot.
After watching the sea cadets leave Wick harbour on their small naval ships, taking photos of the interesting architecture, I prepared to drive away.
A little café on the opposite side of the street caught my eye- it didn’t look impressive at first but there seemed to be a steady stream of locals arriving. Someone was outside cleaning the windows and then I realised that the café included next window along and ensuite accommodation.
Not having had much breakfast, I ventured across the road. The locals looked up as I entered and the lady at the counter welcomed me. Enjoying my coffee and scone as I watched out the window, it was also an opportunity to check the menu. There was the usual ‘all day breakfast’ selection, soup, a choice of main courses, salads, sandwiches and amazing home-made cakes. Look at the photos on their “website”:http://www.wickersworld-cafe.co.uk/
Returning for a late lunch the following day, I’d just settled down to eat when cars started to arrives. Locals, families, conversation, it was time for afternoon tea.
My meal of scampi and salad was good. However, with an early ferry to catch the following morning, it was time to think about packing for an early start. Another good, unexpected find in Wickers World ! Definitely worth remembering for next time.
