Café Winchester has established itself as a community hub, despite only opening in autumn 2016. From the outside, the Tudor frontage, box sash windows and overflowing hanging baskets paint a pretty picture of this dog-friendly establishment. Once inside, the convivial team ensures all feel welcome, creating a homely atmosphere where guests can relax and stay a while. The savoury offering includes toasties, jacket potatoes, garden salads, doorstop sandwiches, panini and what’s billed as Winchester’s best bacon sandwich, while cakes and pastries are perfect when paired with coffee or a pot of loose-leaf tea from the great range. Popular sweet treats include the courgette and lime cake and the gluten-free caramel shortbread, though the fresh fruit smoothies are also a great choice. If you’re visiting early in the morning, the café’s breakfasts are sure to delight.
