Ridings Cafe Artisans Bakery
Restaurant details
Reviewed May 2, 2013

We go to Ridings on a regular basis and are never disapointed. It has to be the best cafe/bistro in Shaftesbury.Lovely home made cakes and fresh food. Nice light and relaxing environment.
Its a real winner not to be missed

After living in Amsterdam John has brought that flavour back to Shaftesbury. All food and cakes cooked in front of you on the Aga in the cafe. Pleasant atmosphere and tasty food.

We plumped on a lunch stop in Shaftesbury to punctuate a long journey and having never visited before didn't have anywhere in particular in mind. Walking in the direction of the centre from our car park though we happened upon 17 Bell Street. From the outside it looked inviting and characterful so we looked no further. The menu is chalked up on a board and included a couple of soup options as well as open sandwiches, quiche & salad type options - all fabulously home made and warmed to order in the huge Aga which graces the back of the counter. It was difficult to know what to choose but eventually plumped for a savoury tart and salad - delicious! Unable to resist the lure of the baked goods too we extended the order to latte and chocolate twists ("the best I think I've ever had" quoted hubbie). If only it wasn't so far from home, we'd be heading back for more!
