Located on the village green the view is idillic. Coupled with this is a good quality food offering and decent coffee. Sometimes hard to get a seat if it’s a big group.

  1. BulletCinnamon Cafe in Royal Windsor. Now one of The Gregarios’ favourite cafes. Located in the old booking hall in Windsor Royal Station   this super cafe is rammed with cyclists at the weekend, and if you’ve visited Majorca it’s a similar atmosphere to sitting in the square at Petra, Their offering ranges from possibly the world’s best apricot flapjack, to their signature cinnamon square, to the perennial beans on toast and grade A coffee. This fine fare is coupled with probably the fastest service we’ve ever seen at any cafe anywhere. It’s almost waiting for you before you’ve ordered. How the heck do they do that?!
