First Judges’ Comments 2017

Back in action and popular as ever

Winter’s is a legendary spot in the busy café-scene of Pakington Street, Newtown. On weekends you will need to book a table because the locals love the place. An attractive and vibrant dining room with friendly staff make your morning brunch or lunch with a glass of good wine good fun. The menu offers great varieties, with classics ready to go, alongside unusual options such as a Japanese Pancake or Katsu curry chicken burger.  The drinks menu was a very good menu for a breakfast and lunch orientated cafe. There were solid options by the glass and champagne and the sparkling wines too well chilled and in appropriate glassware. Winters coffees are special (they use Code Black – rare in these parts). The latte art was well executed and symmetrical. The milk well textured and the coffee rich and naturally sweet. The prices and value for money at Winters are very fair. It’s the kind of place you can visit frequently, enjoying something new each time.
