Poddington's Coffee House (3♥) is located within Straiton Retail Park and offers real coffee, cake, breakfast and lunch, alongside friendly service.
Poddington's use a bespoke blend by local roaster Mr Eion and take care with how they prepare it. Owner Gavin Dove has gone out of his way to source their produce as close to his shop as possible with the aim of both supporting the local community and minimising the environmental impact of food miles.
The shop is modern glass and steel, in keeping with the rest of the retail park and shares the space with a wide range of major brands including clothing, homewares, electricals and furnishing. Needless to say there's plenty of parking.
Once you step into the shop, you're greeted by friendly staff as you place your order and pay at the counter. Then take a seat and your order will be brought to you.
On the food side there's a wide array of cakes, including gluten free, as well as breakfast options of cereal, toast and waffles and lunch of soup, stromboli or toasties.
We've got big respect for Gavin and his crew who are an indy coffee outpost, relatively speaking. Bravo!
