Continuing my cafe tour of the West Country, today’s post is all about Kitchen Langport in sleepy old Somerset. Kitchen is set within a beautiful building by the river, known as The Wharf. The building is surrounded by smart flats on one side and lush green river banks on the other. The space is also airy and light, not surprisingly the cafe is also available for hire- I can imagine a large event or summer party here would be ideal! Wooden beams and mismatched furniture reflect the casual cosiness of Kitchen, which in turn is mirrored by the lovely if not slightly scatty (in a good way) staff.
I ordered the smoked cheddar and garden herb quiche with salads and summer slaw, all of which was extremely tasty. The quiche’s pastry was buttery and flaky, the filling was wonderfully eggy with the perfect amount of smokey cheese. Yum. If you’d prefer something a little more substantial, the cafe also does options like burritos with tasty lime pickle and a decent sized organic burger and chips.
After you’ve been suitably fed and watered (don’t forget dessert- a selection of homemade cakes are available too) you can enjoy a walk in the surrounding fields. Overall, a gorgeous setting and lovely venue for a family lunch or respite for hungry dog walkers!
