Fancy a short trip to Britain?

by Good Idea | Comment I’m the dealerUpdate

Philippe describes himself as bit of a mongrel: his mother is Belgian and his father British. “Typically Luxembourgish” as he puts it! The shop, opened by his mother many years ago, is however very British and is appropriately called “Little Britain“.

At first glance it is a “normal” supermarket, like hundreds in Britain – with typical biscuits (chocolate and digestive), sausage, bacon, British cider, teas …. But it is also an important meeting point for the British community. For other customers, it has something special, a certain exotic charm that transforms the shopping experience into a bit of an adventure.

The “tearoom” is of course the place to take one’s tea, but in the morning you can also treat yourself to a classic English Breakfast (bacon, eggs, mushrooms and all the trimmings) and in the afternoon for snacks such as burgers and salads: by the way, Friday is Fish & Chip day. Just next to the tearoom, you’ll find an impressive selection of English literature, non-fiction books, magazines etc! Supermarket, restaurant, book shop – here you can experience British culture live and in colour!

A little tip for how to get there, as your sat-nav may struggle. From Luxembourg, take the motoway towards Belgium, take the Mamer/Capellen exit turning right towards Capellen, straight on over the round-about: the shop is next to the Renault dealership shop on the left.

Good Idea : Take a short trip to the British Isles, at “Little Britain“ you get British products, delicious snacks and English literature, all under one roof.
