the green cafe - ludlow
Mum always raves about The Green Cafe and has been wanting to take me here for ages. We've just never got around to actually coming down. My Mum's bakery provides the bread (it's amazing, if I do say so myself), and the produce is as locally sourced as possible. I had Spicy Tagliolini and my Mum had Langoustine and Scallops (fancy). We slurped on Tea Pigs Peppermint tea and Earl Grey and ate down on some cheese and cake. I had Lemon Polenta: it's my favourite. The Tagliolini was so good, really fresh tasting with lots of flavours, and the lemon cake was just… wow. Absolutely delicious and well worth having to wait a few extra minutes for it to cool down after it came straight out the oven. I can see why it's always so busy and hard to get a table without a reservation. It's insanely good, and a must visit place if you're in the area. Tasty, simple and really hits the spot.
