A mother and son team run this friendly café and sandwich bar, offering cured meats and cheese, charcoal bread and homemade cakes
A dog friendly – in fact, generally friendly – café in Elm Row, Thirsty Pallet is run by a mother and son team. Supplies of fresh scones and home baking are topped up every day, and there’s a nod to New York in the deli-style food like filled bagels, breakfast muffins, croissants and toasties. Upcycled wooden pallets have been made into low benches and coffee tables where you can admire the tropical fish gliding around in the tank and listen to local radio while you wait for your coffee and bacon roll to go. Alternatively you can sit-in with a black haggis cheese grill (black pudding and haggis with melted Monterey Jack cheese). This is a nice café to have up your sleeve; it’s neither too cool for school or expensive and it’s handy for a multitude of locations and transport options.
