Unflashy, but with a definite streak of style, this cute café is an all-day, everyday hangout for local residents. Yummy mummies, toddlers in tow, frequent it during the week, & off-duty professionals descend at weekends. Savvy kitchen staff create simple plates with panache. Any croissants from breakfast (freshly baked, like all the bread & pastries) might be turned into delicious raspberry summer pudding for later that day. Savoury dishes could be wood-pigeon salad with grape chutney, lamb leg steaks with baba gannouj, or sea bass with orange, fennel & radicchio salad. The owner is a Kiwi, so Monteith’s Black Beer is among the artisan lagers & ciders, but it’s a shame New Zealand wine doesn’t figure more prominently. Children have their own menu, plus fresh juices or milkshakes to drink.
