Located in the heart of Coleford, just two miles from the Welsh border and in the ancient Forest of Dean district is a smart, independent cafe serving up delicious home-cooked food, cakes and great coffee.
For breakfast (there’s a different menu for Sunday) you’ll find a selection of filled baps including their ‘big bap’, a full vegan/English brekkie, a range of poached eggs (Benedict/Florentine), porridge, toasted teacakes, scrambled egg and their popular American pancakes served with either caramelised banana & chocolate or bacon & maple syrup. Note: If arriving on Sunday you’ll find their lunchtime menu available to order all-day.
At lunchtime (and all day Sunday) you’ll find a range of paninis with flavours from sweet chilli chicken, chorizo & red pepper and a delicious vegan rosemary & red onion, available alongside quiches, tarts, sausage rolls and pork pie.
For those with a sweet tooth there’s a selection of homemade cakes and cheesecakes on display including a large slice of vanilla cheesecake, coffee & walnut or chocolate brownie. Coffee comes curtesy of Greenhill Coffee Roasters in nearby Cinderford.
Inside it’s chic interior you’ll find plenty of seating for small to medium sized groups along with a small enclosed rear courtyard which can be accessed from The Tram Road running behind the cafe.
Symonds Yat and its famous rock is just a 2 mile cycle north and certainly worth the hilly ascent for its iconic view of the Wye Valley and beyond.
