Elsie's Priory Road
Another gem on Priory Road! This lovely little place surprised me... I was expecting somewhere more suited for evening meals, but was really chuffed to feel totally welcomed and settled for lunch :)
The place is characterful and individual. The walls are covered in quirkily painted portraits and there are interesting and nicely packaged products for sale.
We were warmly welcomed by Elsie herself (first name Claire, middle name Elsie) who offered us hot drinks. We enjoyed our cappuccinos and took a look through the menu - lasagna, sandwiches (toasted and non), pastas, salads and breakfasty dishes too. Plus loads of drink options, including that of the booze variety.
I went for an 'Elsie goes to Hollywood'... A toasted flatbread with cheddar, smoked ham, pickles and mustard. It was delicious.
I then had a salted caramel and pecan cheesecake for pudding - I was meant to share it, but may have accidentally eaten it all.
There's also snacks for little ones available and a kids menu too, amazing looking cakes, bread to buy, and some fab events coming up which are worth a look!
I will definitely be back... Thanks Elsie.
