magnolias, beach blankets and babylon
There were bright blasts of Magnolia trees on every corner, when we decided to drop into BBB for a spot of lunch.
Well, not exactly drop into, it was slightly planned, and meant we could get a complementary prosecco before we dined.
Beach Blanket Babylon is a rococo institution in Notting Hill, and a lovely way to spend a relaxed lunchtime with a good changing cast of interesting local folk.
It's just a street or two away from the busy market, made famous in that film, and an oasis of chill in a bustling area.
We sat close to the bar, in that area with the Gaudi-like mosaics and the understated fireplace.
