The Hollies Farmshop Cafe, Little Budworth
The Hollies began in 1959 as a roadside veg stall and honesty box. Little Budworth was the site of the first farm shop, and it continues to offer butchery, delicatessen, gifts, garden centre, forest lodges and the coffee shop, which draws on top farm produce to serve up everything from a hearty breakfast to cake and coffee.

Aubergine Café, West Kirby
The locals are fiercely proud of this little gem - a neighbourhood family-run café tucked away down a side street in the seaside town of West Kirby. Breakfast, brunch, sandwiches, salads, afternoon tea or just a reviving cuppa - Aubergine delivers them all with style using, wherever possible, ingredients sourced very close by.
Gran T’s, Altrincham
Everyone has a soft spot for their old gran, don’t they? Chris Taylor went one better and set up a cafe in Altrincham named after his late Gran T and conjuring an ambience reminiscent of a visit to your gran’s. That means board games and books for the kids, sandwiches and cake, an informal atmosphere and higgledy-piggledy furnishings.
