Yellow Bicycle Café
Winner of Best Independent Café at the 2015 Taste of Dorset Awards and ﬁnalist in 2016, the Yellow Bicycle Café creates unique food that breaks away from traditional café cuisine. This cosy café seats 21 people and features an open kitchen that allows diners to watch their food being prepared, providing a fun, relaxed atmosphere.
The focus here is on homemade dishes prepared with ingredients sourced as locally as possible. From homemade baked beans served on the café’s freshly baked bread, through to specials such as locally sourced rabbit and wood pigeon cassoulet, everything on the menu is crafted in-house – including the signature ﬂatbreads. In fact, even the tomato ketchup and brown sauce are homemade, as well as accompaniments such as hummus, salsa verde, pesto and salad dressings. Freshly preparing dishes to order ensures that those with dietary requirements are easily catered for.
The menu provides a contemporary take on breakfast, with dishes such as spicy Mexican eggs served on the café’s own cornbread, and the Yellow Bicycle’s interpretation of huevos rancheros, served in the pan they’re cooked in along with homemade bread. Every offering is available in a smaller portion, so children can have their pick of the whole menu.
Delicious homemade cakes are the perfect accompaniment to a cup of local tea or coffee, and there’s also a wide range of cold drinks, including refreshing homemade lemonade and delicious milkshakes.
