This is the best place to go by far for a brunch / coffee date in the Harborough area, the place is always popular and for good reason too. They do amazing veggie options which can still be hard to come by in some smaller cafes. The food is very contemporary with dishes from a classic english breakfast to eggs shakshuka to an avo smash! Bowden have got all basis covered. I would love to view your menu online if you could find a way to host it, as a lot of people from offices pop in or go for lunch every now and again/ pre order over the phone.

Had a lovely lunch in there with the family last week. The food was delicious and the staff were lovely. The bloke with the beard made us feel so welcome! I heard great things about this place since opening up in Phil's old shop and I was not disappointed. Love what they've done with the place. I'll be coming back to try the rest of the menu! Lots of great veggie and vegan options too.

Popped into Bowden Stores after it was recommended by a friend. I was really taken back instantly by the relaxed, welcoming environment. Loved the big farmers table in the middle witch you shared with others. Food was great, fresh, local and of a high quality. The mushroom was fantastic (was it cooked with truffle oil?)
As well as the great food the three young lady’s working there were outstanding and made us all feel very welcome, nothing was to much. You were great with the little one too!
Thank you all.

Came to see our daughter and she hadn’t got home from visiting a friend so we went for a coffee to kill time. This is the first time in this establishment and was very surprised to find that they did not do Red Bush tea and also their Gluten Free cakes were very limited. Seeing that they are supposed to be an established business for catering for all kinds of hot drinks. Also the cost of tea and coffee was £2-50 each, as well as their buns/ cakes. We will not be going again. Too expensive for the quick pop in. We called for lunch at a pub coming down from the North and had two roast dinners and a drink of fresh orange for £11-20! So all in all this is a very expensive shop for a drink and cake. Obviously this is a very affluent area.
