Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Throughout the day the glass frontage of Matilda’s reveals a hubbub of families devouring cakes, and takeaway customers popping in to pick up a sandwich deal. However, on Friday and Saturday nights the café is transformed into an entirely different eatery altogether with the availability of their bistro-style market menu. Dishes vary from the traditional, such as haddock with hand-cut chips, to the more creative, most notably the beautifully tender duck with pak-choi, soy, chilli and sweet potato. Naturally, as Matilda’s is first and foremost a patisserie, dessert is something truly special, and the passion fruit meringue pie is undoubtedly one of the highlights of the cake selection. In an area dense with daytime coffee spots, it’s exciting to see a café fully exploring its potential.
