The Red Brick Cafe- Bridport

The first cafe I visited on my new blogging journey was The Red Brick Cafe in Bridport, Dorset.

The cafe itself is an old converted house, surrounded by Bridport Antiques- also well worth a look. The cafe is filled with a mix of ornaments, filling a range of fireplaces and nooks and crannies. There is seating both inside and outside, so will suit all kinds of people- and I’m sure all four-legged friends.

Long benches line the main room, where the kitchen/counter is also situated. This counter, filled with fresh tarts, salads, sandwiches, cakes and a selection of breads- including gluten free- makes it almost impossible to choose. However, after careful deliberation, I went for the ‘Famous Falafel Salad Plate’ with a green tea.

Falafel Salad, cheese scone and green tea

The crockery resembled a collection from a Uni house. A Harry Potter mug to my left, a Yorkie mug for my green tea and a selection of glasses. However, I feel the cafe was going for a more recycled theme, rather than my own ‘lets pinch a glass from the pub’ approach. The plates and bowls were lovely, and water was given out in various metal vessels.

My lovely lunch date- my Mum- chose the split pea soup and cheese scone, washed down with a homemade apple juice, which was indeed very appley.

Live Music

There was live music next to our table, which was both tuneful and a lovely change from the boring elevator music so many eateries seem obligated to play. I even caught myself tapping along through my lunch.

The informal cafe meant the overall vibe was incredibly relaxed, with lovely staff who were incredibly helpful.

Both affordable and filling, I left feeling very happy- as well as smelling incredibly garlicy- which as my friends know, is not an irregular occurrence. Overall, if not only to try the lovely, fresh and healthy food, I would highly recommend a visit to Bridport, to explore the large number of antique shops. Full of character and with such an inviting menu, the Red Brick Cafe is somewhere I will definitely return.
