Hey guys! I hope you are all having a lovely week so far. I thought I would end the week in a good way by releasing a post centred around food, one of my favourite things. Sweet Little Things is a beautiful cafe located on Newland Avenue in Hull. I first visited it late on last year with my cousin and fell in love with the food that they serve there as well as their stunning pink aesthetic. It’s unlike any of the other cafes that I’ve visited and I was so excited to discover another cafe that I can visit when having lunch dates with my friends and family. So here are my first impressions of Sweet Little Things!
Upon entering Sweet Little Things, the first thing that hit me was the pink colour scheme. Pretty much everything was pink or in some way linked with the colour pink and although pink isn’t my favourite colour, I still admired the fact that everything matched so well. It wasn’t a massive interior with about 3 or 4 tables to sit at overall and also some window tables on either side of the door which me and my cousin sat at. However, smaller cafes always feel cosier and more intimate than massive cafes and this was the vibe that Sweet Little Things created too. The counter was located in the back corner and it hosted several types of tea and alcohol as part of their drinks menu. There were pink fake flowers draped across the top of it which further added to the aesthetic.
After looking over the menu, I decided to order the capresse croissant. I’d never been to a cafe that offered croissants as a lunch option so naturally I was looking forward to trying it. My croissant was presented on a pink speckled plate with vegetable crisps accompanying it. I took the first bite and loved it. The subtly sweet undertones of the croissant perfectly contrasted with the tangy tomatoes and mozzarella. I was impressed that they had managed to create something that not only looked good but also tasted incredible as well.
Sweet Little Things also offered several cake options and as someone with a sweet tooth, I knew I had to try one of them. I was particularly tempted by the Biscoff cheesecake so I decided to select that. Just like the croissant, it was presented beautifully on a pink plate with a side of cream and flowers sprinkled on top of the cream. It was one of the best cheesecakes I have ever had. The creamy middle combined with the crumbly biscuit bottom created an incredibly delicious sweet treat and I savored every single bite.
To conclude, I really enjoyed my visit to Sweet Little Things. The food was amazing and the aesthetic was unmatched. I’m really looking forward to going again as soon as possible.
