Once we enter the place leaving the cold streets of Sheffield behind, the smell of cupcakes make us be more and more excited to try them. Fancie is a warm and cozy place with some quiet corners where you can have a nice time enjoying a conversation with friends. From one of those corners, Brooke's beautiful smile greets us, she arrives on time, with her British punctuality.
After a warm hug and confirming that Fancie's cupcakes menu looks delicious, we decide to have some of them along with her skinny latte with a shot of vanilla syrup and our chai tea and capuccino with three cupcakes (truffle, banana & toffee and carrot & orange).
Since sometimes the weather do not allow Sheffield citizens to go outside for activities or walks, Brooke recommends the Meadowhall Shopping Centre, right outside the city, with a wide range of shopping, leisure and fun for the whole family.
Now that we have realized why Fancie's cupcakes are so famous and with no crumb left behind, Brooke offers a walk around the city centre to know the main buildings of Sheffield, so we go back to the streets formed by row houses with those typical British entrances and stairs until we get the Town Hall, a beautiful building of 19th century with gardens on its surroundings and an architecture quite different from the rest of the city, giving a special charming to this area. Close to the Town Hall, Brooke brings us to the Millennium Gallery, a modern building that we have already saw on our way from the Train Station. This is a culture centre which normally has different and interesting exhibitions, as well as the City Hall, pretty close, a neoclassic building with more exhibitions and culture events.
The evening arrives and some streets in the city centre, full of people and food sellers before, start getting lonely due to the proximity of another winter night in Sheffield. And in the same way the night is coming, the time of saying good bye is also close, and so is that sad feeling of how quick the day passed. Sheffield, Brooke and the students' laughs at the Train Station say good bye with the strong conviction of meeting us again real soon.
