Fasted riding is good for you they said. No it’s not, it’s horrific when doing 20 miles with 1,200 feet elevation so I was delighted 16 miles in to stumble across this little gem of a cafe hidden away in Newton-le-Willows.
From the front it’s hard to spot how to get in but once you do you won’t be disappointed with the food and drink.
I ordered a bacon sandwich and a flat white. It came in at £7.75 which is quite steep but the food is of great quality. The bacon was well cooked and lean, the bread roll fresh with a nice crust and a little bit of side salad. Now salad with a bacon sandwich isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but I rammed it all in there and it was beautiful.
The coffee tasted great and was just what I needed to get me going the last few miles back home. One thing that was a shame was that it was a little misty as I’m sure the view from the seats outside would be spectacular on a clear day.
A great little cafe and I will be back for another one of those bacon sandwiches!
