Lady Marmalade

Lady Marmalade was the place of choice for lunch today after reading an excellent review the night before. Besides, it wasn't too much of a detour as we planned for a movie at Balmoral after. Hmmm...immediately, we loved the retro outfits of this little corner cafe! We were hoping for some air-conditioning on a warm day like this, but we survived the heat sitting indoors, right where the open expansive windows are.

There is a good selection of sandwiches, baked goods sweet and savoury and an impressive looking couscous salad. Sandwich lovers, you will be spoilt for choice! A cooked food menu is also available if heartier choices are desired. We went straight for the Turkey sandwich with Quince paste and a Ploughmans lunch.

Moist turkey slices, swiss cheese, softened red onions complete with a spread of sweet quince paste on a well toasted sourdough (could it be Banneton bread?)- Hearty & simply delish!

Nothing makes Mr foodhunter feel more humbled than having somthing as simple as a ploughman's lunch.  Imagine yourself after a hard morning's work outdoors and then tucking into somthing that is just so wholesome and unpretentious.  Generous servings of cheese is always a plus as well as nicely pickled carrots made this meal for me. Yum!

and this pumpkin man was our table number!
