OPENING: Toast cafe
Toast cafe
A UNIQUE cafe is set to open in Honiton on Monday.
The aptly named Toast, situated in the town's High Street, will offer patisserie-inspired cakes, traditional English cooking, ethically produced Fairtrade coffee and loose leaf teas.
Housed within the beautifully decorated Yarrow Interiors, Kate McCaig and Becks Reed are working with owner James Yarrow to offer a distinctive and delicious addition to the town's burgeoning food and drink scene.
Many will recognise Kate and Becks from The Holt, a little lower down the High Street. For the last five years Kate has been head pastry chef while Becks has overseen front of house.
So its a start of a new year and I'm getting more cake orders all the time.....but I'm not complaining......
I'm learning new techniques for my next cake already . Ive also been watching the new season of Cake Boss ( Discovery real time 9.00pm ) , i do love that programme !!
