Wild Cafe - Bath Food Review
Posted on: 2016-08-25
My curiosity got the better of me and I had to see what this little independent cafe on Queen Street was all about. Check out my review below.
It was like the opposite of going into the wardrobe to Narnia as I walked into this hidden cafe. Located down an idyllic cobbled street, the cafe looks roomy on the outside but once you step foot inside it's noticeably very small but cosy. One of the first things I noticed is that there is an open kitchen so no matter where you're sat you can see the chef's cooking your food, which is always a nice touch.
The decor is rustic, wooden and homely and the waitress was wearing a t-shirt featuring a picture of a lion, to play on the word 'wild'. This is not something you see on a regular basis so it gave a friendly impression and the waitress was lovely as expected.
It was breakfast time so I decided to order the Fruit Pancake Stack which consists of blueberries, bananas and maple syrup. There's the usual bacon and maple syrup version (£6.50) for those who like the more American style pancakes. Of course it wasn't a surprise when the gargantuan pancakes were put in front of me because I had watched the chef make them, with my mouth gaped open. This is because they were the thickest pancakes I had ever seen, they didn't really look like pancakes, almost like bread rolls! This is what makes them stand out from every other cafe around, because they are not only huge, soft and doughy, but they are absolutely drowned in delightfully sweet maple syrup. For a foodie with a big appetite like myself, these were a dream, especially when they cost a mere £5.95. I did struggle a little to finish them off towards the end but the taste did not disappoint and the small serving of fruit was refreshing against the stodginess of the pancakes.
Washed down with an almond milk latte, it was the best start to my day and kept me full past lunch time. The coffee itself was quite strong but with a slight sweetness thanks to the creamy almond milk. You can tell that the food and drinks here are made with love and attention.
If like me you're always looking for new places to try and are a lover of pancakes then this little gem is one not to be missed off your list.
