Today we decided to fortify ourselves at the Cocoa Tree in Pittenweem before starting a walk back to Crail from there, figuring that it was cold and we needed some incentive to get us going.
What a choice! We were greeted warmly by Chris Walker who was spending his New Year break helping out in the cafe. The Cocoa Tree was one of the few places to be open on 2nd January, but this was due to demand from regulars and at the time when we were there a steady stream of customers was arriving to savour the delights on offer.
This was our first visit, and certainly won’t be our last. The Caliente: a divine combination of quality hot chocolate and a hint of chilli is definitely addictive and a perfect pick-me-up for someone who doesn’t like sickly sweet chocolate drinks. Paradise in a cup. If you can’t wait to get here to sample some, then the Cocoa Tree offers on-line ordering and I’ve just noticed that they also stock Willie Harcourt-Cooze’s World Class Cacao products too. Oh, I’m lost!
We measured our distance using iMapMyWalk (a free app for iPhone) and from the western end of Pittenweem to Sandcastle Cottage at the eastern end of Crail we clocked up just over 8 miles, to bring our total for the three days over New Year to 20 miles. Great training for the Moonwalk!
