Found within the blissful Windrush Valley, in the peaceful village of Temple Guiting is a delightful cafe to rest those weary legs when exploring the north Cotswolds. Outside there’s a large, sun trapped patio garden complete with awesome firepit for those cooler months (check it’s lit before arriving), where talking of fire you’ll also find one inside too.
There’s great locally roasted coffee courtesy of Fire & Flow served from their La Marzocco machine, alongside organic loose leaf tea to boot. As for cake, they’re all homemade and proudly on display at the counter, with our personal favourite being the sour cherry and pistachio cake!
On their seasonal menus breakfast goodies including shakshouka, a Maghrebi dish of eggs poached in a sauce of tomatoes, peppers, garlic & onion and staples such as a locally sourced full English/veggie/vegan breakfast, toasted sourdough, yogurt & granola and ciabatta rolls (bacon, sausage, vegan, egg).
As for lunch when we last visited we found rosti (butternut squash, leek & sage), wild mushroom & truffle savoury tart, soup, warm beetroot salad and their legendery steak ciabatta sandwich served with onion marmalade, Simon Weaver blue brie and potato wedges – delicious!
