Cosy café serving some pleasingly original options for breakfast and lunch with added care and attention than normal
The summary above sums it up I think and this is why, if one is passing through Hitchin (a pleasant, small town in Hertfordshire) and needs a snack done well, you would do a lot worse than come here. I’ve been here twice now and am reassured enough it should go on here as it is good value with original choices for lunch with some pleasing effects.
I do like the way the chili jam is made on the premises and the general care that goes in to making each request whether it is a fried toastie or rather good sides (although I do think it would make the place even better on its existing home made theme if its mayonnaise was not bottled and this was home made as well).
If you’re expecting prices resembling a Sainsbury’s sandwich lunch, you would think this was quite expensive, but if you go in knowing you are going to get restaurant quality comfort food then it actually changes to being quite good value. This is a charming and considered place for breakfast and lunch even down to the obvious care that goes in to decorating the tops of coffees with the foamed cream. It has touches like these that make it above the average café and the food was quite pleasant as well, so I’ll be happy to come back here if passing through, no question.
