And now there is! The Soulshine Cafe opened three months ago and is such a refreshing addition to our already vibrant market town.
It's the place to go for smoothies and fresh juices - you can either order one from the counter at the front, which also sells their own artisan bread and deli items, or stroll through to the bright and lively cafe at the back, which opens onto a beautiful outside courtyard.They also sell art and lifestyle magazines which can be difficult to get hold of in this part of the world!
So much thought has gone into every aspect of the stylish design - there is a little annexe containing a herb garden and even a cute understairs area where children can play with vintage toys.
Just as much passion has gone into creating the locally-sourced menus with snacks and meals to suit every appetite and plenty of vegetarian and vegan food on offer. The menu is displayed on a big blackboard:

They are so addictive and I love how they serve them in jam jars:
Back soon with a post all about maxi skirts!
