Lavender Bakehouse excels!
It was there I had a second breakfast - a favorite of hobbits and this councillor - wow is the food good and local - coffee was also excellent (I am a bit fussy re having a good coffee). I used to pop in when I think it was Beth who ran it as Gather Me Flowers (also good coffee) - apparently she still runs the flowers across the road but now the menu at the Bakehouse is bigger and it is very much a great place to eat.....the bread was particularly good - made I understand specially by a local baker, Sally and delivered twice a week....if Sally ever decides to expand and start selling more of her bread she is sure to rival the best of bakers locally! Anyhow the cakes were also good - I will be back. Downside? Well it could be nearer Ruscombe and they could get pepper mills instead of pepper pots!
I wish the new owners all the very best with the venture - I know how hard work it can be - my brother set up and ran Cafe Maitreya in Bristol which won the top vegetarian restaurant awards repeatedly.
