A fabulous lunch! What a surprise finding such a place in a nursery. Food was a mix of Middle East meets European with tasty hummus and corn bread with tomato butter.

Had passed this place on numerous occasions but had a bit of spare time between appointments so thought I’d try lunch. Was very impressed with the attentive service and the food was excellent. Will return soon.

This café not far from Darsham railway station is beautifully designed. We had excellent coffee and hot chocolate. It was served by charming staff. Although in the heart of the countryside, this establishment would not look out of place in Kensington or Marylebone.
