Sunflower Café

Sunflower Cafe Statement – July 2020

We have had a number of enquiries asking if our Sunflower Cafes will be reopening on the 4th July. We thank you for your interest and we appreciate how keen you all are to enjoy a freshly cooked meal, cream tea and of course, the cakes however we will not be reopening our Sunflower Cafes for a short time yet. We will of course continue to focus on the safety measures put in place throughout the stores and keeping the shopping experience at the excellent standards you would expect.

Rest assured that we will notify you all via our website, social media platforms and in-store of the proposed dates for re-opening just as soon as we are confident that we can do so.

Until then, you will find selected food hall products in the cafes, so that picking up a delicious treat to enjoy at home is still a possibility.

Scotsdales Sunflower Café

At Scotsdales we want each and every one of our customers to have the best experience we can offer. We understand that this isn’t just limited to your shopping experience, but your dining experience as well. That’s why each of our three stores has its own unique Sunflower Café with individual menu’s, events and offerings.

All our cafés serve as much locally-sourced produce as possible, and whichever you choose, you can always expect to enjoy the most delicious home-cooked meals – from full English breakfasts to hearty Sunday roasts (with all the trimmings!) and a tasty range of vegetarian dishes.

If the weather’s warm, you might like to choose from our lighter options instead, with jacket potatoes, crisp salads and freshly-cut sandwiches. For the little ones in the family, we offer a tempting children’s menu as well. Of course, you’re very welcome just to drop in for a pick-me-up coffee or refreshing soft drink.

Tea-time is a big event at Scotsdales, too, and our home-baked scones, gluten free cakes and cream teas are always a real favourite.
