It was a thoroughly miserable day today, so I was pleased to find refuge from the rain in the Storytelling Centre’s Cafe.

Even though there have been countless opportunities for me to do so, this was my first visit to the place. A mixed arts space, the complex includes a range of flexible performance spaces. At the front, there is a spacious and bright cafe, which I found full to brimming with lunchers, today.

Soup

It’s table service, so I took a seat and considered the menu. My eye was caught by their specials board, which offered broccoli and coriander soup and a roast chicken, pear and walnut salad. I ordered them both from the friendly waitress.

The soup arrived accompanied by good looking bread. It had a good chilli kick to it, but was a little thin, texture-wise. It was a promising opener, though.

Salad

The main course salad was very good. It combined a number of different elements and brought them together in a well-balanced dish. The chicken was plentiful and delicious. I was really pleased with it.

So overall, I was glad to have finally visited the Storytelling Centre and was impressed with their cafe. It’s a lovely space, the welcome is warm and the food on offer is delivered to a very good standard. I’d be happy to visit again and would recommend you pop in next time you’re in the neighbourhood.
