Seddon Deadly Sins
Chris Gooden and Simon Armstrong were a bit concerned about having the words "deadly" and "sins" in the name of their cafe, which is located across from a church. They needn’t have worried – Seddon Deadly Sins’ popularity has assuaged any doubts.
The duo fosters an atmosphere where customers are greeted by name, and the staff is genuinely friendly. The cafe’s small size means customers spill out onto the footpath, or take to one of the many chesterfields upstairs. None of the grand old furniture seems out of place – the building, with its distressed brick walls and large windows, lends itself to that style.
The menu includes spicy sweet-potato latkes on baby spinach topped with crispy bacon, sour cream and chives. There’s also beer-battered haloumi with an onion, fig-and-chilli jam, baby spinach, bacon and two poached eggs.
The menu comes in a repurposed Little Golden Book, and the everyday breakfast dishes are named after one of the seven deadly sins.
