Popped in for a coffee and something to eat after a cold walk. Had a lovely latte and a BLT sandwich, the bread tasted lovely, was so fluffy and fresh! A nice little cafe with a friendly atmosphere.

What a great selection of cakes to choose from. We went for the Courgette and Lime cake and the mixed Berry polenta cake. Great coffee and attentive staff. You can also take your dogs in, only if they don’t eat the cakes 🤣

Welcoming, comfortable coffee shop that offered a range of tasty breakfasts. We enjoyed both our breakfasts and a good pot of tea to accompany it.

I hadn’t been to the Nutmeg Cafe for sometime and was revisiting it for a quick lunch with a friend. I know it was right in the middle of a busy lunch time but we couldn’t find a clean table. We decided to sit at...More
