The cafe run at St Colms (Wood B’Good, St Colms Cards and Cafe) every Friday from 10am to 2pm in Kirkwall continues to get better and better.
Those of you who may have been there already will know that St Colms cafe serves excellent soups – from their own home grown produce and delicious home bakes. It also serves a variety of fillings on their rolls: bacon,sausage, egg and the popular mince.
Daniel Laud, Lecturer in Hospitality at Orkney College UHI, has been working with the up and coming cooks at St Colms and every week something new is on the menu. This Friday it was fillet of fish burgers with tartare sauce and pea puree. It was delicious and apologies for the picture which does not do it justice.
Next week the menu will be stepped up another notch serving chicken with a Greek twist.
The cafe is extremely reasonably priced. Home bakes are £2, the fish fillet burger speciality of the day was £4. If you just want something simpler there are a range of teas and coffee from the Orkney Roastery. Fresh produce from St Colms is also on sale and is extremely popular.
The atmosphere is friendly and you are served efficiently.
