It’s a funny thing, but as we work to make the Allendale Bakery Cafe more and more comfortable, we ourselves tend to forget how much things have changed since our very first launch images.

But in addition to the furniture, we also enjoy a seasonal change of mood with the work of different artists.  Throughout the end of the summer and on into September, with all our sympathetic  display furniture finally installed, we were so happy to present the stunning water-colours of Rosie Villers-Stuart on our walls.

And this November we’ve been delighted to feature the work of local artist John Fowler which fascinated everyone who dropped by the cafe.

Throughout December, we’re focusing downstairs on the abstracted images of local views created by Dorothy Lawrenson, and upstairs on the refined moods of Sarah Blackett-Ord.  These images all help to create yet another reason to make your visit to our friendly cafe soon, and often!
