The Pig and Pastry has near legendary status among locals (who may stop short of fighting each other for a table, but only just). From brilliant breakfasts to tasty lunches, this café is well worth seeking out if you don’t mind venturing beyond the city walls. It’s small but perfectly formed: fresh and tasty food in a very relaxed atmosphere. Not a lot of space for buggies, and be prepared to share a table if things get really crowded. If you’re lucky (and the weather’s good) you might get a table out the front where there’s a bit more room.
Best for – tasty breakfasts
