Nicola Jenvey

This quirky café has changed ownership over the years, but still remains a popular spot for locals to catch up over breakfast or lunch. Owned and managed by a lovely Muslim family, the café is now fully halaal and is available for private functions, including kitchen teas and baby showers.

Food
Breakfast options include the usual eggy suspects, with lamb rashers served instead of bacon, as well as a savoury croissant, vegan breakfast or citrus fruit salad available. What’s also great is that you can create your own breakfast from the itemised list of extras – the kitchen is happy to oblige your fancy – and breakfast is served all day. The shakshuka is really good – poached eggs baked in a Middle Eastern spicy tomato sauce, served with chewy toasted ciabatta.

Sweet and savoury muffins are baked in little terracotta pots and the mini bee sting cakes are legendary and should not be passed up under any circumstances – they make a great takeaway.

Light meals cater for a variety of tastes, with generously filled wraps, crispy flatbreads and toasties all served with potato, sweet potato or zucchini fries. More substantial dishes are included on the signature dish menu, which includes fillet, sirloin or T-bone options, peri-peri prawns or Norwegian grilled salmon.

The desserts are decadent – the malva pudding is extremely moreish and there’s usually a range of fresh cakes on offer.

Drinks
A concise menu of hot and cold drinks, including a range of teas, craft iced teas and homemade lemonade.

Service
Friendly and accommodating, this team is always eager to please and will leave you in peace if you’re catching up on some work.

Ambience
Mismatched tables, chairs, crockery and cutlery add to the charm of this café, which has an indoor dining area and outdoor courtyard, set under leafy trees.

Best for…
A breakfast date with friends or a quick business lunch.
