Family friendly café - review by south-sider

We are regulars at the Dahlia Coffee House, a light, clean, airy and spacious space within the gardening treasure trove that is Aylett Nurseries.

With friendly staff, speedy service and tasty snacks, it’s the ideal spot for coffee and cake (wholemeal carrot loaf is our favourite) or a more substantial sandwich, salad, jacket potato or daily special. Coffee, tea, a good range of soft drinks and delicious ice creams should satisfy most customers. Baby changing facilities are excellent.

If you do pop in, you may find it hard to resist buying something from the nursery’s wide range of plants and garden equipment. [Oct 08]
