Our passion for all things delicious is at the heart of what we do. Our cafe offers light lunches, homemade cakes & scones, great coffee, and much more.We also have a shop full of yummy goodies...locally sourced items always take precedence, but you will also find exciting flavours from the rest of the world. Every product is individually selected and we are constantly sourcing new produce and suppliers that we think you might like! We offer a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere, alongside personal and knowledgeable service.We are located at the famous Chilli Farm, which has something for everyone! The Chilli Farm grows thousands of plants each year and you can see them being grown in the Nursery on open days. They also have a smokehouse and their own shop 'Smoke & Spice' which sells The Chilli Company's own range of sauces and smoked produce, as well as everything for the chilli lover!We look forward to seeing you at the Farm!
