We feel blessed to have found some lovely people to work with us at the Garden Cafe, they have been on this journey with us from the 1st of May this year. Our little cafe in a marquee in the garden has been a huge success we have had a stream of good reviews and got a reputation for the best scones around and an afternoon tea to rival the best (and a lot cheaper).
Today has been only the 2nd day we have closed (first was to allow everyone to go to the Driffield Show), now we are in October the idea of eating cake in a cold marquee (we do have overhead heaters but we can’t get away from what people imagine) isn’t what people are looking for they want cosy with hot food, so we decided for the rest of October we only open Sat, Sun, and for a few day leading up to Halloween to make coming to our Halloween event more enticing as food is available.
So today no-one needed to be in the kitchen or house just us and the animals, really love having our staff around but love them not been here just for a bit.
To add to this we connected up the baby monitor so we could both sleep at the same time in bed so had a good nights sleep. Woke up quite early as missed puppy watching.
Anyway late doing this today so sleep is calling.
