thumb_owl_10_largeJudith Glue’s Real Food Cafe in Broad Street, situated across from the Cathedral, is open in the evening as well as through the day throughout the Festival and provides a good option for somewhere to eat when you’ve just enjoyed a talk and want to take the opportunity of a meal before going to the next one.

So for instance if you’d like an early evening bite to eat between a 5 o’clock talk and a 7.30 one, it’s ideal, and conveniently situated for the various town centre venues.

It provides opportunities at other times of the day as well, as it’s open from 9 am to 10 pm, Monday to Saturday, with Sundays 10 am to 6 pm. Last hot food orders need to be in by 9 pm.

The atmosphere is bistro-style, with the food cooked while you watch. The food is local produce with specials such as beef & ale hotpot, locally dived scallops in garlic butter, a seafood platter, or homemade local crab cakes.

The furniture is also Orcadian, with comfortable wooden farmhouse chairs and tables and an opportunity to try an old-fashioned strawback chair as well.

There’s more information on their website.
