I visited the National Cafe for a light lunch after the press preview of the exhibition for the BP Portrait Awards. As I was planning a hike around the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition as the next thing on the agenda for the day I needed a sit down and a bit of time out. The National Cafe does very nicely and is very convenient for anybody wanting a bite to eat in the area of Traflagar Square at any time of day! This is the menu.

You can also have a classic afternoon tea - although I've personally 'delisted' cream teas those from my choice of food items while I try to achieve my goal to lose weight and generally embrace Sketchercise!

You can see more sketches like this - but at different venues in Interior landscapes with food - a Sketchbook

My Sketchercise total for that day was 10,094 steps and 4.78 miles

  2. I know I commented on Sketchercise, Katherine but I must again because this is one of my all time favourite cafe sketches.
