Cafe Week: #1Cafe Impromptu, Ashbourne 9/10

Mushroom OmeletteCafe Impromptu is owned by an experienced cafe proprietor and it has quickly attracted a regular group of customers. The cafe has a double front and so the prime seats are the two window tables. There is more seating through the back of the cafe down a couple of steps. Many casual visitors to Ashbourne may not even know it is here as it is almost at the end of a run of shops heading out towards St Oswald’s.

It’s worth the effort to find it. It offers the most refined breakfast in Ashbourne in my opinion. The ingredients are always good and the service is always well-managed with attention to detail.

IMG_0227You can get breakfast baps and the full English here but others probably do it as well and at a lower price. Cafe Impromptu does offer things which are a little different – Eggs Benedict, Kippers and a range of omelettes. I’ve tried them all and they are all good. The kippers are a real standout – great flavour, beautifully moist and served with bread and butter. The Eggs Benedict is well executed with a lovely soft hollandaise sauce. Today’s choice, the mushroom omelette was nicely cooked and just nice for a breakfast snack.

Coffee is always good here too.

The toilet is upstairs and with the back room being through a narrow passageway and down a couple of steps this may not be the best for anyone with mobility issues but it’s worth a visit.
