Funny thing is that you never go to the restaurants and cafe’s very close to you. At least that’s the case with me. I think it’s because you can easily eat at home when you’re that close. Though, sometimes it’s nice to just eat some nice food without doing a thing for it. The ‘Taste of Chamberlayne’ is the closest cafe ever and I never go there. When I was thinking of going to live in this neighbourhood I went to get a salad here and I drunk tea a few times. Just to have a feel of it all. I remember really enjoying the falafel salad and that they’re very easy going when it comes to making something plant based. And because it’s just a very lovely cafe, I would like to share it with you.
The ‘Taste of Chamberlayne’ is just a very nice cafe. I really like the interior. It’s very vintage. With lots of different chairs, tables and a really nice blue-ish sofa in the back. The whole place just looks great. A lot of people know this cafe and that is no wonder. You could go for a lovely bagel for breakfast or a delicious salad for lunch.. and they have some nice fresh juices available too. I went for the falafel salad again and I found out I remembered well. It was very tasty, with the falafel, tahini sauce, yummy green olives and grilled veggies. And because it was so hot outside I also ordered a refreshing watermelon juice. Stay hydrated!
Thanks to the wifi and the relax atmosphere it’s a perfect cafe to get some work done, so just bring your laptop, order a beverage and I’m sure you’ll do great. On sunny days, especially in the late afternoon whilst the sun is low and shining it’s last warm rays on the terrace (read: on your face), it’s lovely to sit outside. They have a few tables available and when it’s too hot there is a den covering the terrace.
Down stairs there is a little children’s play area. Perfect for if you want to enjoy a well deserved cup of tea whilst your little one can have a run around.
There is also the possibility to have take away, what is always handy. They’re open from 7:00-18:30 and if you want to have a look at their whole menu before you go, you can find that on their website. I’m sure the friendly staff is ready to make you something nice!
