I’d had a couple of near misses with the Project Cafe, visiting at times when it was either closed or before they’d begun serving their full menu, so was glad to time it better for a rainy lunchtime visit, today.
I was joined by first time quester Mark. It was his suggestion to lunch here and a damn fine one it was.
Their daily changing menu is set out on chalkboards behind the counter. It broadly falls into the categories of soup, salad and cooked dishes. There are cakes and pastries for sweeter-toothed customers, also.
Mark chose the soup which was pea and mint. This sounded good to me so I ordered that too and added a portion of their borek.
Items soon arrived looking as green and healthy as expected. Topped with toasted pumpkin seeds, the soup was fresh and flavour packed. It managed to combine sounding fresh and springlike with actually being hearty and warming which was ideal on this Baltic April day. The accompanying bread was delicious, too.
My borek packed in more green freshness, with the exterior pastry thin and crisp. It was really good stuff.
So overall, I was very pleased to finally tick the Project Cafe off my list. It’s a great space, supports good local community work, and serves very tasty food. I’d be happy to visit again and would recommend you do likewise.
