Last weekend I headed back down South to visit my boyfriend and left the sunny Norfolk coast behind for a couple of days. Whilst most of the weekend was spent preparing for interviews and writing more cover letters, we did manage to escape for a bit and came across Josie’s café in nearby Bishops Waltham.
Josie’s is fairly new to the small village of Bishops Waltham but already appears to be a favourite amongst locals and cyclists. Tables and chairs spill out on to the pavement on sunny days giving it an almost continental feel.
Inside there’s a vast array of wines and you can pick up a bag of Monmouth coffee too.
When we arrived the café was still buzzing with people, creating a feel of a busy London haunt. Personally I loved that – but it may not be everyone’s cup of tea!
The food at Josie’s
We both ordered a beef, cheese and onion toastie which comes accompanied by a homemade coleslaw for £5.50. As the café was very busy it did take longer than you’d expect for the toasties to arrive. This gave me the chance to flick through the papers and indulge in people watching! The wait was worth it in the end!
The toasties were packed with nice beef, oozing with cheese and perfectly complimented by the onion marmalade. Far better from the prepacked, half empty sandwiches you’d get across the road in Costa.
The cakes going past us to other customers looked just as yummy.
If you find yourself going past the area and are looking for a tasty bite to eat then I’d highly recommend Josie’s.
The only thing that bugged me about Josie’s is that it calls itself a deli. A deli to me is full of cheese and hams and produce, not lots of table and a bit of coffee (that’s just me being picky though).
