Plans are being developed for a permanent cafe in Hilly Fields, but for the next six weeks, a mobile cafe, will be open daily on top of the hill, near the open gym.
Serving a mix of hot and cold food and drinks, it's closer to the kind of place you'd find at the summer fair than the Pistachios model.
Called Cafe M in honour of its owner Marina, she explains:
We have a menu of breakfast cumberland sausages, two kinds of German sausages, bacon rolls, and 100% beef burgers. We only use organic free range eggs. We also do veggie options.We have sandwiches (on white or brown) and panini's which are all made to order with a selection of fillings.
We have pastries, muffins and cupcakes (which the latter is made by Fiona Cairns, who also supplies them to Waitrose). we have the delicious Byron Cookies, in a selection of flavours. We do stock crisps, but them are top quality Pipers crisps and Pom-bears, which are baked and free from additives.
We are also going to be doing Winstone's soft scoop, hand-made ice cream, which you will find on offer, in Pistachios In The Park and The Stainton Tearooms (Mountsfield Park).
We have a bean to cup coffee machine and we use exactly the same fairtrade coffee bean as Pistachios, both getting our supplies of John Street Beverages. We also have filter coffee. We also have a range of Twinings herbal teas, and fairtrade hot chocolate, which comes with the option of cream and marshmellows.
If you've had the chance to try it, please let us know what you think.
