10.30am at Fego Caffé Cobham, 14 Anyards Rd, Cobham KT11 2JZ
On a sunny weekend, Fego Caffé turns into a local hotspot with a queue past the entrance and a fully occupied terrace. Even during the week however, it caters to a wide demographic looking for a contemporary style restaurant or a casual eating experience.
As you walk in, smiling staff and a down to earth interior greet you by the door. The dark brown colour theme runs throughout - from the flooring, up to the wooden tables and chairs, into the counter top showcasing sweet treats. Black boards and mirrors with handwritten specials, updates and a free WIFI code also add a personal yet practical touch.
At this time, most tables are made up of brunching friends with no children present. The caffé feels busy enough to be apart of a pleasant mid-morning atmosphere, but quiet enough for revival workers to concentrate.
Tables are also plentiful here so there is no problem in taking over a space for you and your laptop, while being able to choose the area you’d like to sit in. In addition to great coffee, free wifi, customer toilets and attentive staff make revival hour easy.
Appealing to many locals, Fego caffé is very family orientated. High chairs, children's cutlery and crayons are at the ready. Although, for revival workers I would advise missing the lunch time rush of parents and children by attending in the morning or late afternoon.
Over the last 10 years, Fego have not only made their mark in the village, but in surrounding towns as well. Their simple but successful model draws in people of all ages, from all walks of life with a reasonably priced menu. For foodies looking to gorge on a large traditional breakfast, to others catching up over a coffee or the few maintaining their New Year’s resolutions with clean eating; there is no shortage of choice here.
