Wylies Cafe Tearooms in Warwick
In a 16th Century building in the heart of Warwick, Wylies Cafe is a
hidden treasure! For a coffee /tea and a snack or a more substantial
meal, this cafe is a must.
WYLIES CAFE TEAROOMS, WARWICK
Because Wylies is down a tiny side street you may not notice it if
you don't know it's there. But this has to be one of the best, if not the best,
cafe in Warwick. The food is excellent and home-cooked with many ingredients
coming from the local area.
The cafe is unlicensed and serves both snacks and main meals.
THE SEATING AREA
There are only ten tables in this cafe and at lunchtime it tends to get
full up very quickly. Outside of lunch time it's not so busy. The
interior of the cafe is decorated in the 1950s style with lots of wooden
furniture. There are also many 16th Century period features. It's a
The full menu appears at the bottom of this page (click any of the
menu pictures to enlarge it) and it contains many delights. One of our
favourites is the full English breakfast. It comes with everything
including home made, locally produced sausage and black pudding plus
locally smoked bacon. This is a breakfast which is fit for an emperor at
any time of the day.
The "cheese melts" on delicious crusty bread are a treat. The bacon
and mushroom version was our favourite along with the faggots variety.
The Blacksmith's Lunches come in a variety of forms and these make
substantial and extremely tasty meals.
The food is freshly prepared and tastes homemade, as they claim they
are. The cakes, along with a coffee or tea will go down a treat
mid-morning or mid-afternoon.
We rate the food at this cafe very highly.
Outside of lunchtime the service is prompt and efficient. During the
busy lunchtime period it can occasionally be slow. If it is slow though,
it's all served by very pleasant and helpful waitresses. And why not pop
into the emporium (see below) for a couple of minutes while your meal is
The main meals were generally in the range £4 to £6 with a coffee at
£1.30. A couple of the main meals were a pound or two more. For the
quality of the served and the portion sizes, this represents excellent
value for money.
||Attached to the cafe is a food emporium. All your favourite
sweets and cakes from decades gone by are there for sale. This
is worth a visit on its own and a browse round is essential if you
are eating at the cafe.
This cafe is a winner for the cosy, times-gone-by atmosphere alone. Pair
that with superb food and it's a true winner. Our only warning is that
the service can be slow at busy times.
