Bramhalls Deli & Cafe
Cafe and Deli
Occupying an attractive Georgian building in Ashbourne’s historic marketplace, Bramhalls offers delicious homemade food and boasts a well-stocked deli. Owners Nicola and Dave Riley work hard with their amazing team to provide the perfect venue, serving quality food and drink. The café and deli are bright and vibrant spaces in which to enjoy quality food and you can expect a warm and friendly welcome when you visit. During dry and sunny days, the outside seating area at the front of the café is the perfect spot to enjoy a hearty breakfast, lunch or a delicious homemade cake and coffee whilst watching the world go by.
Seasonal produce is at the heart of the impressive menu, which includes burgers, soup, quiche, risotto and terrines. You can also buy frozen meals for dinner, and a very popular hamper service is also available. We visited for a late summer lunch, and our starters were perfect. I plumped for fresh tomatoes with creamy mozzarella, which was delightful, as was my partner’s smoked fish pâté with crunchy toast. Next, I chose an avocado and feta salad with Parmesan crisps and beetroot and yoghurt dressing, while my companion plumped for salmon and pea shoot risotto. Both dishes were simply outstanding and packed with flavour. Tempted further by desserts, we chose the mouth-watering chocolate and pecan tart, as well as a coffee and walnut cake – the perfect end to a fantastic afternoon. Bramhalls Deli and Café is the ideal destination in which to while away the time.
