... we made it over we headed up to the hill with the old Royal Palace on it (now a museum). We then wandered around the old style streets at the top of the hill and headed to an old cake shop (since the 1800s) where we had some coffee and cake. Bradley opted for the Irish coffee which he found very strong!! I went for an iced melange which was like a weak iced coffee and much better. We had a cream cake which had puff pastry and a vanilla cream/custard filling, and a ...
