About Me


Congratulations on stumbling upon my blog!

Hi, my name’s Lucy and I am a self confessed foodie. I eat, sleep and breathe food and I just cant get enough! I mean, who doesn’t appreciate a super spicy warm chai latte on a cold windy day, or a beautiful real fruit ice cream on an absolute scorching afternoon? Or we could go a bit classier and say who doesn’t love a salmon en croute of a Friday evening followed by a Poire belle Hélène and a tipple of Moet? Either way, food and drink is bloody delicious and it has this amazing ability to bring people together to share laughter, love and experiences.

Lets start at where it all began. I was born in England in the little town of Guisborough, North Yorkshire. I grew up in various different places around the U.K until I reached the ripe old age of 9 where my parents decided to relocate to the other side of the world and settle down in sunny Nelson, New Zealand.

I am currently studying at University in the beautiful city of Wellington, also known as Ed Sheeran’s favourite city – but we wont brag about that too much. Wellington is the place that really sparked my passion for food; it has an abundance of cafes, restaurants and food bloggers themselves. Whether you want a fancy night out with cocktails and tapas, or just a cosy bowl of cheesy bacon wedges – wellington has it all!

I have only just started my food journey, but I can tell it is going to take me to some extraordinary places where I will come face-to-face, or mouth-to-plate, with some extraordinary food.

Look out world, Cafe Crawler Lucy is coming to test everything you have to offer. But the real question is; How will you rate on the CCL scale?
