With a glass cabinet full of goodness, walls lined with artisanal gourmet products and enticing aromas wafting from the kitchen, Chez Dee is equal parts cafe, provedore, wine bar and takeaway food shop, and they are doing every element very well.
Breakfast can range from poached eggs with mushrooms and Hollandaise to baked eggs, showered with generously shaven fresh black truffle. Lunch offerings vary daily, channelling the spirit of London’s much-loved Ottolenghi, which built a reputation on its ever-changing menu rife with abundant fresh produce.
In the early evenings, the laidback atmosphere makes Chez Dee the perfect spot to stop off after work for a glass of wine (some organic), before heading off with something from their selection of more substantial take home dinners.
On the horizon are Chez Dee High Teas to be held upstairs in the cheery lounge space; house-made preserves, pickles and jams straight from the kitchen; as well as flower arranging classes and guest chef dinners at the large, familial wooden table that takes pride of place in the main room.
Who wouldn’t want a home like that?
