One Forty’s cafe has rapidly become my favourite destination with mouthwatering, stunningly presented dishes served throughout the day.
It all started back in 1959 when John and Kathleen Graham moved to Cranleigh and took over a small children’s wear shop next to the railway station. Over the years, the business has grown and now Richard and Elaine Graham run the store, which today includes a fashion boutique and gift shop on the ground floor with a café upstairs.
The One Forty Cranleigh Cafe is just the place to visit if you fancy a bit of shopping with a cup of tea and a decent slice of cake or a spot of lunch.
According to Richard (Owner) the most popular items on the menu are apparently the carrot cake (£3.25) and the paradise slice (£2.75). The café also offers a good selection of gluten and dairy-free cakes.
If you’re looking for something a little more filling, the lunch menu includes the One Forty burger, salads and sandwiches plus a board displaying the Specials of the Day.
However for us it was the full english breakfast that enticed back on a rainy Sunday morning. We were not disappointed in either presentation or taste. The eggs were cooked to perfection and the sausages were Collins sausages that were bursting with flavour. The atmosphere was relaxed, friendly with a lively buzz which reminded us of a trendy shoreditch cafe.
Would we go back for more ? well the answer is simply YES YES YES. If you have not tired the new look One Forty Cranleigh Cafe then you are missing out
To sum up, One Forty Cranleigh is a friendly neighbourhood café where regulars can meet and chat over tea and cake or lunch. It’s also refreshing to find a family business featuring a homely café on the high street.
