Cantina Ventnor, Ventnor, Isle of Wight

What a lovely little find. Huge thanks to @MattandCatt on Twitter for the recommendation.

Mr C ordered a strawberry milkshake and I chose a Limonata.

We’d been travelling all morning, up to Southampton and then on the ferry to the Isle of Wight. So a perfect lunch stop just before 1pm. For our lunch we ordered Swabian noodles with mushrooms, red onions and mature cheese. I chose a tomato, red onion, olive, crouton and basil salad with balsamic dressing and a baked fig with honey, toasted walnuts and cheese.

Oh my they looked divine and tasted amazing. The flavours and colours in my salad were out of this world.

For dessert we ordered a slice of brownie and a salted caramel fondant with vanilla ice cream and almond brioche crumb. Mr C also ordered a coffee.

The fondant was oozing with caramel and the ice cream was speckled with vanilla. The brownie was lush, enough crunch on top and gooey on the inside.

To take away for tea we bought a ham, onion and cheddar quiche and an olive foccacia. There was no way I wasn’t trying their baked goods but I really was full to the brim after my lunch… and yes I did share my fondant with Mr C!!

Would highly recommend this little cafe for eat in or take out and try them for lunch or diner. Lots of lovely shops nearby too so recommend a bit of time in Ventnor if you can.
