Going along to Mrs Bee’s Potting Shed Café I expected to find fresh, home made and appetising food but I didn’t anticipate a genuinely exceptional eatery, standing out among the dozens I visit each year.
The menu certainly delivered on the ‘fresh’ and ‘home made’ and it also featured a strong hint of healthy continental content, making it truly alluring.
Mrs Bee’s Potting Shed Café is inside Russell’s Garden Centre in Baginton, on the outskirts of Coventry. Run by Becky Blackwell and her husband, Andy, it has an appetising array of meals, drinks and snacks featuring bread, cakes and scones hand made on the premises, including a selection of gluten free choices.
My choice from the Feeling Famished menu was the Halloumi Club Sandwich on homemade focaccia bread with avocado, sun dried tomatoes, salad, pesto and home made coleslaw, which was really delicious and satisfying. Becky brought a selection of her lovingly made cakes to try, still warm and ridiculously delicious and moreish.
The café was delightful and well laid out with smiley staff, capping off a wonderful visit, we discovered an amazing ‘secret garden’ based on old quarry workings, teeming with wildlife and really beautiful to walk around.
Mrs Bee’s Potting Shed Café is hoped soon to have an ice cream section – a gelateria – but I’ll be going back again before that, with my girl, because this is probably the best café I have ever visited.
