Review of the week
'The film starts quite well. It shows us how much technology impacts on our everyday modern lives. However the concept of falling in love with a cyberspace PC entity is just taken too far for anyone to be taken in. If it had more humour then the ridiculous could be taken at face value. The plot descends into such sloppy romantic slush that I found several scenes embarrassing. In fact, the long repetitive scenes of out right maudlin sentiments coupled with endless romantic piano music in the background were just so cringeworthy that it was extreme even for an American film.'

This Italian-influenced bakery, café and coffee shop is located in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford. They proudly list on their website suppliers such as Shipton Mill, H Forman & Son and Estate Dairy, and make their pastries and cakes every day (you can even watch the baker through the glass window if you want). Brunch is available until 3pm, with scrambled eggs and Italian pancetta, Forman's smoked salmon or an English brie some of the options available. Gourmet sandwiches (on paysan rolls) and savoury toasts (on their sourdough) are filled/topped with things like salmon, avocado, lemon and capers, Italian sausage, pecorino, ruccola and black pepper, or avocado, crab, lemon, chilli and sesame seeds. The beers, prosecco and (organic) wines are all Italian. Plus there are prosecco cocktails, including Aperol spritz, orange mimosas, elderflower hugos and bellinis.
