Description: Our passion for all things delicious is at the heart of what we do. Our cafe offers light lunches, homemade cakes & scones, great coffee, and much more.We also have a shop full of yummy goodies...locally sourced items always take precedence, but you will also find exciting flavours from the rest of the world. Every product is individually selected and we are constantly sourcing new produce and suppliers that we think you might like! We offer a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere, alongside personal and knowledgeable service.We are located at the famous Chilli Farm, which has something for everyone! The Chilli Farm grows thousands of plants each year and you can see them being grown in the Nursery on open days.

“Great food in lovely location”
Reviewed 9 July 2013

Stopped here by chance but really glad we did. The food was great, fresh and well presented and the staff were very friendly. Lovely farm shop and a specialist chilli shop with home grown and home made products on the site also make this a great place to stop and shop. If I travel down this road again I would definitely stop here again. Recommended for anyone in the area.

A great place to stop off for some delicious food and snacks. You can have a great meal and take some gorgeous choice chesses, olives et al .. yum yum!
It has now become a firm favorite and we recommend it to everyone!
Pop in and enjoy a fab meal, there is also the chilli farm next door that complements the Deli with good Chilli products and excellent tortilla chips! hot hot.

“Great place and perfect cake”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

We have driven past this place many times and said we should go in so we had some time free and decided to go. We weren't disappointed. The chilli side of the site seems small - a few plants for sale but the deli, chilli produce and cafe are fab. The cake is to die for. Friendly staff helped as well with everything.

“A lovely lunch – cakes look delicious too!”
Reviewed 10 May 2013

This was our first visit – but won’t be our last. We stopped for a cup of tea but were so intrigued by the menu that we had a gorgeous lunch instead (although the cakes looked delicious too … next time perhaps!).

Everything was fresh and the portion sizes were good. The ambience was calm and relaxed and everywhere was very clean. All the Staff were friendly and service was unrushed.

We did find it very warm upstairs, but not unreasonably so bearing in mind we visited on one of the hottest days of the year so far. We would have enjoyed our visit more without the musak, but that it a personal preference and it won’t stop us returning.

“'Deliciousness'!”
Reviewed 5 May 2013

I've had several delicious lunches at the café at the Chilli Farm in the last few months. The new management have done a great job in turning this place round. The sign outside promises 'deliciousness' and that's what we got! There's a great menu with a wide choice of tasty food. The stilton and caramelised walnut bruschetta I had last week was fantastic. They were very helpful in accommodating a group of us from work recently, allowing us to pre-order so our meals were ready when we arrived. There are so many tempting things on the menu that we might just need to keep going back to try them all...
