Week beginning March 14th - Lovely food and Guest Single Origin coffee

Chef Jared has taken our food offer one step further this week and is making his own pumperknickel bread with will then be sliced, toasted and topped with a lime cream cheese, watercress, smoked salmon, cucumber ribbons and red basil cress.

This we serve with our choices of salads, which this week include either fennnel, prunes, chicory, feta, coriander and mustard dressing, or roasted jerusalem artichokes or broccoli with chimichurri dressing.

Just knowing that in his head that all these flavours will work, then putting them together and creating dishes that are colourful, tasty and healthy is such a joy to see.

Finish this off with a poached rhubarb sweet muffin and you could not be happier really.

I am also excited this weke because Square Mile Coffee have given us the opportunity to have a guest siingle origin espresso for the next four weeks. Just being able to say to Anette and James 'yes, I'll have 200 kilos please', was exciting enough. This is the Villa Loyola espresso blend and we are the only cafe to be serving it. It will also be available as a retail bags of 350 grams in store.

We free trialled this coffee with some of our regular customers a few weeks ago and the feedback was fantastic. It is also the coffee that SQM served at the recent TED conference as part of Coffee Common. Exciting stuff indeed, look out for its release date next week sometime.
