Not only did I recently have the pleasure of meeting Julie on my recent trip to Bollington but I was also lucky enough to sample her home made scones fresh from the oven, still warm and absolutely delicious !
Julie has a passion for cooking and baking that goes back to being a small child and cooking with her Mum and Grandma. She was experimenting with cake recipes as young as seven, although she did warn me that ovaltine doesn’t make a suitable substitute for cocoa in a chocolate cake ! She bought the café almost on a whim after deciding to leave a career she was disillusioned with and has made it an amazing welcoming space with books tucked into the backs of the chairs so anyone visiting alone can have a read.
Julie’s café is in Clarence Mill in Bollington and has a wonderfully warm and welcoming atmosphere as well as an art wall the changes every few weeks. You can find the café on Facebook here.
