Peppers cafe in Gloucester is a recent discovery by me for a tasty organic lunch but has been around for over 5 years. Peppers is off the beaten track in Bull Street a street I have not needed to visit for quite some while it seems but in essence has a very good location.
Peppers provide a good range of homemade food. Wherever possible this is locally sourced and/or organic. The emphasis is on sustainability and fair trade: for our producers, suppliers, staff and customers.
My First Visit To Peppers Cafe
This cafe is a great place for an organic lunch as I discovered. I was the most nervous I have been or years meeting a nice out of town girl from social media and needed somewhere to focus my thoughts and get my composure Peppers fitted the bill perfectly, the first date went well and currently meeting again in her town.
Anyway on entry, I grabbed a bottle ice cold elderflower cordial and headed for the counter to be served by some very friendly staff in what seemed like bright and colourful Caribbean hats. I chose a coronation chicken roll, will salad to accompany my drink.
The food was prepared fresh in the cafe and brought to my table in a timely fashion. The cordial was very nice and the sandwich was very nice, the bread roll was soft and nice with lots of coronation filling and nice fresh salad. I would recommend and will be returning to this place in future, can see it being nice using the chair and table outs side in Bull street on a warm summer day.
