I am a great believer in the humble cafe; giver of decent portions and a mug of Britain’s finest tea for a price that is pocket-friendly. The cafe seems to have died a bit of death in recent years so I am always glad to discover a new one that is churning out great food every time. Step forward, Cabana.
Nestled not far from the heart of town on Waterloo Street, ignore the somewhat confused shop front and step into the perfect lunchtime stopover. I love the quirky art hand drawn onto the walls but most importantly I love the food. A solid cafe menu stuffed full of breakfast and lunch choices, as well as range of daily specials which feature flavours from across the world and every dish is prepared with fresh ingredients, including local veg and free range eggs.
The pepper and goats cheese soup was moorish and salty/sweet, while the veggie burger was a veritable tower of cheese, pesto and griddled veg that even the hardest carnivore would find hard to turn down. Meatier plates of corned beef hash and salt beef Ruben sandwiches also did not disappoint.
At night the Cabana serves Thai food, which I will certainly be back to try out, but if you are looking for a spot for a lunchtime catch up why not try the Cabana? I am sure you won’t be disappointed
