The Wool Towns Advent – December 20
Cradle | Sudbury
Welcome to The Wool Towns Advent – each day, between now and Christmas Eve, we will be opening the doors on one of the region’s shining stars. Oh come all ye faithful, sing in exultation!
No visit to Sudbury is complete without a visit to Cradle, a much-loved and buzzing cafe/bakery with a Hoxton/Shoreditch look. Simple and stylish, it’s completely plant-based with everything made from scratch on site, including nut butters and an excellent rooibos-based fermented kombucha.
Bread is baked on site, with house-milled rye, wheat and spelt flour used in the proper crusty loaves. There’s also some very tempting patisserie on display and a blackboard menu offers an interesting and surprisingly fancy range of dishes – prime, fresh ingredients superbly cooked!
As featured in ‘Britain’s 20 Best Vegetarian Restaurants’, The Times, 14 July 2018:
“Cradle calls itself a “plant-based café and bakery”, but one look at its Instagram feed will tell you that there’s a lot more going on in this intimate space, with its communal wooden table and stools, than handmade sourdough made from flour that they mill themselves. This eco-friendly, ethical, social enterprise also serves some exquisite looking and delicious sounding dishes, including wild garlic and nettle tortellini with apple cider cauliflower, and spring onion and lemon potato cakes with fresh asparagus, tartare sauce and crisp cavolo nero.”
Cradle is open Wednesday-Saturday 8am-4pm and for dinner on Saturday 7pm to 11pm (on reservation).
