A few days in Winchester

I met up with an old school friend in Winchester the other day. I hadn’t seen her for about 15+ years! She recommended meeting at a little cafe in the centre of town called Rawberry. Such a cute place. Quite industrial in design with lots of raw wood and metal on display. I loved it. 

They specialise in healthy, fresh and natural juices plus smoothies that they make themselves in their juice bar and cafe. All of their recipes have been created by them and have a range of health and nutritional benefits. They also have a selection of shots designed to give you a quick nutritional boost and help you make the most of your day. The Rawberry staff aren’t a fussy bunch so if they’ve got the ingredients then you can even build your own juice. 

We ordered our drinks from the bar. Erica had a soya latte and I went for a coconut and pineapple water. Absolutely delicious. To go alongside our drinks we ordered a piece of carrot cake and a sweet potato and poppy seed muffin. All of the cakes are gluten free which is great if you are on a special diet like Erica. The cakes were wonderful. The carrot cake had a delicious lime topping and was full of walnuts. The sweet potato muffin had a hint of spice to it which was a welcome surprise. 

They also offer a range of delicious flat breads with new ideas always developing. They have recently been experimenting with frozen yoghurt, porridge and energy balls.

Erica and I were chatting away about what we have been up to for the last 15 years and what we were up to in our lives now. We decided that more drinks were needed. I went for a Tea Pigs Chai tea and Erica ordered a decaffeinated tea with soya. Whilst ordering the drinks I noticed that they had various health foods for sale too. In particular I noticed that they sold Primrose Kitchen cereals. I had been looking out for their cereals for a while now after following them on Twitter. I was thrilled to see that they had the Beetroot and Ginger muesli which I added to my bill. I’ve been looking out for it in Exeter but haven’t found it as yet. I can’t wait to try it once I get back home to Devon. I told Erica all about the muesli too so she bought a box! I hope she likes it…

Overall the service was great at Rawberry. There were two rather lovely chatty girls that made our experience even more of a pleasure. I am so thrilled that Erica introduced me to Rawberry and I can’t wait to spread the word. I will definately be back to sample more of their wonderful cakes and perhaps a wrap for lunch next time I return to Winchester.
