Nestled away in Bolton Street, is the aptly named Bolton Street Pantry, a humble little café with good food and coffee on offer.
The simplicity of this place just draws you in, it’s all white tiles, exposed concrete and clean lines. Light bulbs dangling from the roof and the timber tables all add to the overall charm.
Onto the important part, the food. The menu ranges from bruschetta, to corn fritters to 12 hour lamb shoulder. I am slightly obsessed with bruschetta, so guess what I ordered?
Probably one of the biggest servings of bruschetta I’ve ever had and it was pretty damn good. My friend Anna, ordered the corn fritters which looked incredible and I’m told were excellent. The black rice bowl which is on offer did get my attention and if I was not in love with bruschetta, I would have got that. At least now I have an excuse to go back.
Bolton Street Pantry get their coffee from The Grounds of Alexandria so that’s a winning situation. Personally, I’m not a coffee drinker so I ordered a hot chocolate because treat yo’self. That said, I have heard good things about the coffee here.
One thing that caught my attention was the little grocery section in the middle of the café. On offer there is muesli, porridge, sauces and chocolate to name a few. I’m pretty keen to try the Brookefarm gluten free “porrij” which looks delicious, even for gluten free food.
I’ll definitely be going back to try the black rice bowl!
Have a great day/night wherever you are in the world!
