Well listeners – here I am again with yet another new-to-me cafe. This time Cafe Nexus Cheney Manor.

Yep, tucked away at the back of a business block on the Cheney Manor industrial estate. Who knew? Well a lot of people it seems as I think it’s been there for a good old while. Anyway – earlier this week I visited it for first time for breakfast with some chums of mine.

From their Facebook page:

A surprising setting

What makes this cafe so charming, aside from the tasty food and super friendly service, is the cafe’s setting. Because what you’d never know from the view you see above is that it enjoys a delightful river view. Isn’t that fabulous?

In the current Covid climate they’ve created an environment that feels safe and comfortable – so it’s definitely worth a visit. But you do have to book of course.

There’s ample free parking in front of the building so another good reason to give it a try.

The review below is from Gary Hazell, one of the party with whom I went to the cafe.

I opted for the small English breakfast and a regular black coffee – and jolly nice it was too. It kept me full for hours.
