Located within this town on the Suffolk coast, is this small deli which by its nature is slightly out of place - as it is too good for the town itself.

However, the young man who owns and runs it is excellent and will provide you with professional, chilled out service. The salads, food, coffees and teas were first class and sooo fresh.

It is very small and only has 10 covers on informal old fashioned tables and chairs, however go in with the attitude that you may be sharing a table with others and you'll be ok.

The deli sells all sorts of goodies and I saw some lovely ham off the bone being carved.

The prices were very reasonable for the quality and quantity.

Areas for improvement may be:

The toilet area needs a good scrub but I have no issues with the cleanliness of the deli itself - why are there razors on the shelf !
The old chairs in the deli need replacing as one nearly broke on a guest.
The music needs to be slightly louded in the background to create some more atmosphere as table are a bit close together.

Worth a try.

The cakes are homemade with love you can tell. The salads are well made with fresh ingredients,
The bread we always try and buy some extra to take home. The tea is hot . AHHHH how I wish I could make poached eggs like that.

I often take a mix of salads to go - with Simply Delicious I know everything will be just great and I'm open to all surprises :) The food is healthy, delicious - and it's the only place around where you have that balanced so well.

As well as wonderful, fresh food to eat in, Simply Delicious also has an amazing variety to purchase. As an allergy mum Shaun's expertise has proved invaluable and the products range he stocks is extensive. A warm welcome and cheerful assistance awaits you, I thoroughly recommend a visit.

Sublime, homecooked food made with love and the best decaf coffee in the whole world. Every mouthful is mouthwatering, the desserts really original. Very warm welcome and child friendly. "Yum yum give me some" in the immortal words of The Fatback Band!
