I tried The Croft for the first time a few weeks ago and I’ve been hooked ever since. They have a lovely menu full of vibrant salads, wraps and the most incredible cakes.
They also make fantastic coffee and wonderful smoothies. As soon as Bournemouth was treated to its first rays of sunshine, I cooled off with a lovely watermelon, strawberry and apple smoothie.
My two favourites, the sweet potato and beetroot salads, are both bursting with colour and flavour (though of course I had to add a cheeky bit of halloumi to mine).
If you’re feeling more in the mood for some carbs, their fries are absolutely divine! My absolute favourite thing from there though, has to be the chocolate orange gluten-free polenta cake. It’s moist, it’s sumptuous, it’s moreish – all those unsettling words that for some reason actually sound alright when you’re talking about cake.
Their menu is packed full of tasty, healthy options (and a couple of indulgent treats as well!) – I highly recommend. It’s probably a good thing I don’t work round the corner from them anymore, if only for the sake of my bank account!
