A quaint little place for a weekend breakfast
Set adjacent to a quaint little nursery lined by terracotta and stone pots and things along the front, the sign marking Wild Pear Cafe is easy to miss as one drives along Old Northern road; perhaps reflecting the unassuming atmosphere reflected inside.
Personally, I love coming here with girlfriends for a catch up and delicious brunch on a Saturday or Sunday morning and if you're vegetarian like me, the 'vegetarian big breakfast' is a great option and fills you up! The bubbly, frothy hot chocolate is also one of my regular orders.
However, the place also does lunch after about 11 am.
The ambience is homely and the staff are reasonable - just make sure you make a booking as it can be quite full at times and parking especially at the back of the cafe on the gravel is a little obscure and can be a problem at peak times but there's always the road.
The prices are a tad on the steeper side however you're paying for a wholesome meal, as well as the tone and character of the cafe in a nice location away from the hustle and bustle of town
