Dear Me Eatery, Longmarket St

1 06 2011

Word on the street is that Dear Me, with it’s pretty and inviting green awning on Longmarket Street is the new place to be. Citing curiosity, rather than the need to conform, as the proverbial arm-twister I decided to give it a go last week. And I wasn’t disappointed. In fact, it’s now on the tip of my tongue for any city bowl brunch or lunch recommendations and will probably stay there for a long while to come.
