Opened in 2014, Folk Cafe is the big sister of local favourite The Parlour. The light, airy entrance drops into a vaulted basement where local artists' work is on display alongside a fairy-lit fig tree and a sideboard groaning with cakes.

Excellent brunch dishes include eggs benedict with a twist, French toast with bacon and maple syrup, and morning glory muffins.
