You cannot come to Hahndorf without making a stop at this cafe - The Seasonal Garden Cafe. It is located on the buzzing Main Street of Hahndorf. The cafe's frontage is lined with freshly grown vegetables. There were a few small tables and chairs outside. We stepped inside and immediately we felt like we were in a country house. There were wooden tables and chairs with a lot of decorations. It looked like a mini library where you could sit comfortably for hours reading your favourite books. We made way down the hallway and that led us to a comfy outdoor seating with a huge garden. Great, I love a bit of sunshine.
Doesn't the coffee look amazing?
When we arrived, it was almost lunch time. Chicken salad was served. It was the best chicken salad I have ever had. The chicken itself was very tasty, it was slightly roasted and had been shredded to pieces. It was tender, it was delicious. It was mixed in with all my favourite salad ribbon vegetables, together with avocado and feta. I couldn't fault the dish. I said to myself I could eat this any day.
My partner ordered more salad, this time it was the spinach with greens, kale had been slightly wilted and served with a couple of poached eggs. The leaves were so fresh, it was almost like they were just picked from the garden. They were vegetables at their best, served farm to table.
The Seasonal Garden Cafe is all about local, organic and seasonal food. It definitely looked like they are extending from their back garden. I love it how you can purchase their fresh produce box. I loved their idea, supporting the locals. Silvia Hart, the owner is very passionate about keeping the food fresh and local which I think is very important. Not a lot of restaurants have this passion. There are plenty of items on the menu on offer and I will be back for sure.
