Decided to try this place for breakfast one Saturday morning, from walking past previously the cafe looked clean, the food fresh and the service friendly. Since trying out the cafe, I've been back on lots of different occasions.
If you decide to try out the cafe, I'd recommend a large coffee and the homemade lasagne with a side salad or maybe the Bolognese Arancini with a garden salad and a hot chocolate. Great tasting food at very reasonable prices. Being a family owned business I found the service to be personalised, warm and friendly.
If you are lucky enough to visit when homemade fresh cannoli has been made, I'd recommend buying some, and if you get opportunity buy some to take home too.
Not only does the cafe have a great select of food but so does the deli, which has a large selection of cheeses and meats, Croydon is the perfect place to have a small deli like this one for the locals to shop at.
La Contrata Deli Cafe is located in the middle of the Strand in Croydon and is just a two minute walk from Croydon train station. I highly recommend this cafe for its great tasting Italian food at very reasonable prices.
