Description
We are a very small Cafe/Takeaway on the Main shopping street in the beautiful seaside town of Wells-Next-The-Sea. Recently taken over on the 1st of march 2014, we look forward to welcoming Old and New Customers.
We can get very busy when the sun is out, at weekends and during school holidays, so please pre-order large orders or even small to make sure you are not disappointed. You can do this by picking up a menu from at the shop or by telephone.
We also can prepare platters for office lunches or large groups or luncheons at home. Please speak to Annie at the shop.
Also, coming soon.... Wicker Picnic Hampers (including all your cutlery and cups, plates etc, your food and a picnic blanket!! (Deposits required for this service).
