Even if you don’t like books, there is always a reason to come to Aardvark!
We are pleased to say our Aardvark Café remains a popular venue where you can order your tea, coffee and cake, or a light soup lunch, perhaps with a croque-monsieur, and have them brought to you as you browse among the specialist art, cookery and gardening books in the bookshop downstairs.
We serve fine leaf teas and excellent quality coffee from local suppliers:
Teas are provided by Claire Trumper of Trumpers Teas, a local tea merchant in Hereford, whilst Coffee comes from Highground Coffees, which supplies us with excellent Fair Trade coffee. The decaffeinated coffee is produced by the waterwash method, which preserves the flavour and ensures a better quality decaffeinated drink.
Melting Hot Chocolate, and more soft drinks… We now have Marimba Melts delicious Dark, Milk or White Hot Chocolate, and we do a wicked Junior Hot Chocolate with whipped cream, marshmallows and chocolate buttons! Popular in summer are Organic Appleteme apple juice, bottled soft drinks and much more.
