A dream café
When Della trained as a chef she dreamed of one day running her own friendly café. That dream became a reality when Della opened Café Loom at Dixon & Franks on Honley’s high street.
Café Loom is the perfect place to relax with a refreshing cuppa, and the homemade cakes, sandwiches and paninis are too tempting for words.
If you’ve spent time exploring the four floors of Dixon & Franks homeware and accessories, then Café Loom, on the ground floor, is also the ideal place to recharge your batteries.
Locally sourced food and drink
Whether you’re feeling peckish, or just want to treat yourself, you’ll be spoilt for choice at Café Loom. Della admits that she puts ‘love into all my food’! She sources produce locally, and the cakes are homemade by Della’s home baker. Flavours change regularly, but the lemon merengue cheesecake remains a firm favourite.
For lunch, panini’s are a popular choice and, on Friday, the hot roast beef sandwich goes down a treat with customers. There’s usually a seasonal special on offer too that will warm you up in winter, or salads to keep you cool in summer.
If you love a good cup of tea, Café Loom offers an exciting array of flavours from Canton Teas. Meanwhile, coffee connoisseurs can enjoy speciality blends from the acclaimed Dark Woods Coffee, who roast their beans locally.
If you have any food allergies or intolerances have a chat with Della and her team. They’ll do their best to accommodate your dietary needs and even have a selection of cakes that you’d never guess were gluten free.
A friendly place to meet
One thing you can guarantee is that you’ll enjoy a warm friendly welcome at Café Loom. Whether you’re a regular or it’s your first visit, Della and the team are always ready with a smile and conversation. One of the things that Della loves about running Café Loom is the opportunity to chat and get to know customers.
“We love that people feel comfortable here. We have customers that come in alone and enjoy chatting with us. We’ve made some good friends with our regular customers and we’ll often sit and have a chat with them, providing there’s no one to serve. Our customers have also developed friendship groups among themselves and now arrange to meet at our café,” said Della.
Quality in store
One of the advantages of running a café in a homeware shop is that there’s no shortage of accessories. Drinks are served in Emma Bridgewater cups, which can be purchased in store, the teapots are on sale and even the table and chairs can be ordered from Dixon & Franks.
So if you haven’t already tasted the delights of Café Loom, why not call in for a cuppa? After all, the proof is in the pudding as they say, so pop along and try out Café Loom’s puddings – as well as their sandwiches, paninis, coffees, teas…!
