When I headed out to Bridlington for the day, I came across this delightful yet quirky cafe yards from the sea front. The Rowan Tree is inspired and managed by power couple, Emma and Harry who declares that their passion for food is derived from locally sourced suppliers maintaining a standard that’s free-range and organic. And of course, delicious. That’s what I found impossible to deny.
The Rowan Tree Cafe
Entering this East Yorkshire based Cafe, I was greeted by an assault on every part of my senses. And I absolutely loved it. Smelling warm freshly made bread, feeling your cares of the world melt about by their enthusiastic and friendly staff, your eyes glancing around to take part in this colourful yet homely atmosphere, ears picking up the laughter emanating from the kitchen, and already you’re tasting what’s yet to come.
As I ordered a plate of free-range local poached eggs on a bed of best local ham on toast, added with a steaming cup of Chai Latte, I took a wander of the charming premises. A fully licensed outdoor courtyard, a display showing you the desserts to die for, very well laid out tables that sometimes hold monthly tapas evenings on the last saturday of every month and also scheduled psychic evenings, I was very impressed.
This family run business is complemented by all family members who help out Emma and Harry as I had the great fortune to meet Harry’s mother whose personality indeed won me over as she brought me my order. Knowledgable in local affairs and readily giving out top tips what to do in Bridlington, she offers an insight of resort life during peak and off-peak seasons.
Leaving me to enjoy my meal in peace as I look out of the window to see people hurriedly going to the beach for fun, I tucked in. And I absolutely have to say that I was in heaven. I’m fussy about my eggs and The Rowan Tree did not at all disappoint. Before I knew it, the plate was empty in front of me. I really did have to resist the urge to order more.
As I paid up, dazzling smiles from the staff made me feel my custom was indeed welcome and you know what? I’ll be coming back to Bridlington again, only for The Rowan Tree Cafe.
The Rowan Tree is open Monday-Saturday 10am-3pm and can be found on Regents Terrace off the Promenade. Get your taste buds in there! Click here for their Website and Menu.
The Rowan Tree Apartment
If you simply cannot tear yourself away from The Rowan Tree Cafe, then I would recommend using the Sea View Apartment that’s situated above the Cafe. Perfect for walkers and cyclists or perhaps even to holiday in Bridlington with the apartment’s front door 800 yards from the beach, then absolutely take advantage of this stunning premises with everything included.
