We’ve fallen just a little bit in love with this gorgeous independent little coffee shop in Wigan – with fresh allotment grown food, delicious homemade cakes and amazing sandwiches and platters.
I’m really happy and excited to see more and more little independent foodie businesses, coffee shops and artisan food stores opening in and around the local area and The Allotment is one of our current little haunts!
Cafes in Wigan
The Allotment is a lovely independent licensed coffee shop and we just LOVE their foodie ethos of using home grown, homemade, locally sourced produce wherever possible.
They sell a delicious selection of breakfasts, cakes, paninis, sandwiches, salads and platters. I adore their Lancashire Ploughman’s Platter – filled to bursting with so many tasty local treats.
With fresh homegrown salad, Reedy’s chutney, Leagram’s Lancashire cheese, delicious roast ham, Fiddlers crisps and super tasty artisan bread from All You Knead over at Haigh Hall. The Ploughman’s platter is an absolute feast and priced at just £8.50 it offers excellent value for money! And more importantly it tastes OOOOOH SO GOOD!
The vibe of The Allotment is totally laid back, warm and friendly, it’s a lovely little place to stop for lunch or just call in for homemade cakes and coffee.
The Allotment also do special evening openings on certain days in the month with music/singers and a delicious tasty, seasonal menu to choose from, dishes like – Aberdeen Angus Beef Bourguignon, Chickpea Tikka Masala, Mediterranean or Lancashire Platter. Table for the evening including meal is just £14 a person. Check out The Allotment Facebook page for upcoming events and to book a table.
And look out for the Friday pizza nights when the Travelling Pizza Company stop by with delicious wood fired pizzas.
