Woodbine Cafe – Hope Valley

on

Situated in the heart of the Peak District National Park is a little village called Hope, home of the Woodbine Cafe.  A small cosy cafe ideal for ramblers to grab a warm drink and a quick snack (in my honest opinion).  I took my son here for breakfast during our camping trip, but I’d probably not be a regular if I lived locally.

The atmosphere reminded me of a workers cafe; somewhere my grandfather would get his cup of tea after a hard days work down the mines.  I got the impression that this was a popular stop off for mountain bikers and rock climbers as well.  No smiles from the old woman serving the tea though, tut tut!

They have a garden area, old fashioned log fire, free wifi and a B&B if you need somewhere to sleep off that large chocolate cake and ice cream.  Talking of food, the bacon sandwiches are the best I’ve tasted anywhere.  Wish I could say the same for the coffee and hot chocolate, but I can’t because I’d be lying.

    We visited Woodbine Cafe for breakfast this morning after having read the great reviews and the offer of good local produce. How disappointed we were. The sausages were greasy and rubbery, the bacon and beans cold, the coffee had no flavour. The only good point was they gave us our money back. The owner appeared very rude treating her young staff terribly. One customer had the temerity to ask how long her bacon sandwich would be and recieved a curt "I don't know. We are busy you know" There were 4 sat outside at the back my partner and I and a couple inside plus the woman wanting her bacon butty and her partner out the front. Hardly enough to rush them off their feet.
