Our first visit to Blandford Forum, and so many options for dining there. Any café with a yellow bike hung in the window's worth closer inspection, so we popped in for light lunch. Early lunchtime, midweek, mid-November: we were lucky and got the only spare...More

One cannot fault this breakfast, brunch and lunch café. Newspapers to read, although the food is brought to your table before you have time to read much. Friendly, fast table service; large mugs of good coffee. Excellent toasted bread.

We came across the Yellow Bicycle while strolling around Blandford Forum. Great coffee, lovely staff and delicious homemade cake. Food menu looked really good especially breakfast so it’ll be on our list of places to visit next time we’re in that area.

We make and bake as much as is humanly possible here in our open kitchen. Locally roasted coffees and locally blended teas. We are a little bit different without being too 'off the wall'! Come and try us. Steve.
