Amazing meals & great entertainment

A family friendly deli cafe promoting local produce from Dorset with delicious sandwiches, gorgeous cakes and great coffee, as well as lots of other yummy stuff!!

We love Dorset and the surrounding counties and wanted to bring some of the fabulous local produce to the people of Boscombe, Bournemouth and beyond.

We pride ourselves on using the freshest ingredients, Andrew bakes on a daily basis so why not come in and try one of his now famous lemon and herb sausage rolls or a chunky steak and cheese pie.  Share a Dorset deli board with a selection of locally sourced meats and cheeses or just enjoy a good old fashioned cream tea served in proper cups and saucers.

Tea and cake just like your granny used to make!

Open 9.00am – 4.30pm Monday to Saturday (except for Bank Holidays)
