Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.

No. 33 has quickly established itself as a super wee Stockbridge café. Friendly staff who clearly know their local crowd, stretch early morning coffee past a busy lunchtime scene, towards a small but perfectly formed collection of afternoon cakes. A sprinkling of timber benches and high-level window seats, snuggle against a simply composed backdrop of white walls and exposed brickwork, with a splash of primary colour. Halloumi, hummus and roast peppers, or prosciutto, brie and sunblush tomato are packed into an appealing array of bagels, croissants and flatbreads, all matched to well-made, daily-changing soups. Homemade sticky date cake proves hard to resist, alongside gluten-free brownies, honey and walnut marlenka and the ever-popular Portuguese custard tarts. In a part of town that’s spoilt for café choice, this is a venue doing more than enough to stand out from the crowd.
