Located in the quiet village of Cookley is a welcoming family-run cafe with prices harking back to the 90s, offering up tasty home cooked food, a large enclosed rear courtyard and their famous delicious cream cakes.
Value for money is phenomenal where for early risers there’s breakfast sandwiches available from just £2.50, alongside breakfast plates, eggs on toast, granola bowl and just simply just toast too.
Daily deals include any hot drink alongside a tray-bake for £3.00, or hot drink and toasted teacake for £3.50!
Additionally there’s a wide range of freshly prepared sandwiches and paninis (£3.50), alongside soup, a Ploughman’s lunch, pork pie, sausage roll and varying daily specials.
For those with a sweet tooth all cream cakes, cakes and tray-bakes are homemade and on our visit included a very moreish vanilla custard slice, fresh scones and lemon, carrot or Victoria sponge cake.
Out back is a enclosed and out the way rear courtyard seating area with plenty of tables, bike racking and undercover seating, perfect for visiting cycling clubs and groups of all sizes. Inside is a small number of tables too in their vintage and quaintly decorated cafe. Advanced bookings are most welcome and advised if placing large food orders.
Being family-run with mum in the kitchen, service is extremely friendly and they couldn’t be more welcoming, it makes a refreshing change to see places like this still existing and welcoming those of all walks and two wheels.
