the loft cafe
Quirky, chic cafe where everything is home-made. We pride ourselves on using quality local ingredients and seasonal produce.
Licensed cafe where quality imaginative food is made on the premises. Fresh salads, tarts, frittata etc made every day - with amazing scones, cakes and lots of gluten free options. To be enjoyed with a range of teas, or the wonderful Illy coffee.
My food hero is Yotam Ottolenghi, therefore much of what we offer is inspired by his food and ethos: flavour is paramount. We use lots of fresh herbs and spices from around the world.
This can be washed down with wines especially chosen to suit our food, local beer/cider and an array of specially selected soft drinks.
We welcome dogs and well-behaved children, but we do not have a children's menu as we believe small people are designed to eat smaller quantities of what the big people eat! Having said that, we are always happy to tailor meals to specific demands - provided, of course, that we have the ingredients.
Our current favourites for lunch are bubble and squeak potato cakes (with bacon), curried beetroot potato cakes and quiche without pastry! Soup is chicken, chilli and coconut with rice noodles, or curried carrot and coconut with chickpeas.
Please let the loft cafe know that you found them via the dorchesterdorset website when you visit or call. Giving this feedback will be very helpful to our future development.
