Signature Salad with Mackerel

You shall have a fishy on a little dishy…

Introducing our Signature Salad. Mackerel, couscous, pomegranate and spring onion salad with a lemon twist and micro herb garnish. Served on a bed of salad leaves with our delicious Benenden sauce on the side, yum!

As some of you may know, we previously topped our Signature Salad with Salmon that first appeared on our menu last summer, but to offer a refreshing change to our customers our chefs started exploring new tasty options. After a week of research, they decided on Mackerel.

Mackerel like other oily fish such as Salmon, Trout, Sardines and fresh Tuna contain protein, zinc, selenium, vitamins A and D and some B vitamins. The Omega-3 fatty acids that are contained in oil-rich fish give it a superfood status.

We should really call it our Signature Superfood Salad. Research on the health benefits of oily fish began when researchers observed Eskimos, who mainly eat oily fish, had fewer average heart attacks and strokes.

There are many health benefits of oily fish. If you’d like to read more, all of these can be found on the below link from the NHS.

At Cafe 1809, we are super excited to announce that our Cafe 1809 coffee blend is now available to purchase in store! That means you too can now create our delicious coffee at home. Well we think its delicious and we hope you do too.

We have been working with our coffee supplier, the amazing Joe at Perk & Pearl in Tunbridge Wells to put together the range. We actually started working with Joe a while back when we approached him to work with us to create our blend. After drinking a LOT of coffee, our 1809 blend was born.

Our coffee can be purchased either as whole bean, ground or ground decaffeinated.

To get your coffee taste buds going, here is a little insight into each of our blends.

Whole Bean

A medium roast blend of organic coffee from Peru & Brazil. 100% arabica whole bean. It has a deep chocolatey sweetness with nutty vanilla tones from the high grown Brazilian coffee. This combination also creates fruit like acidity that produces a gorgeous, lingering finish.

Ground

A medium roast blend of organic coffee from Peru & Brazil. 100% arabica general purpose ground. It has a deep chocolatey sweetness with nutty vanilla tones from the high grown Brazilian coffee. This combination also creates fruit like acidity that produces a gorgeous, lingering finish.

Ground Decaffeinated

Medium roast organic Peruvian swiss water method decaffeinated general purpose ground. This is a gorgeous organic coffee from Peru that has been decaffeinated using the natural swiss water method. This leaves a lovely chocolatey sweetness and it also supports women farmers in Peru.

Our baristas are always around to answer any questions regarding our coffee. A certain team member even has a coffee cup tattoo. That is dedication to coffee!

Our new website will contain everything you need to know about Cafe 1809. From our menus to special events that we hold throughout the year. Over the new few months we also have a few exciting developments including the launch of Active Soul. All of this information we will post in our blog to keep you up to date.

Check out Our Space where you can find out all about the rooms we have available to hire upstairs. We have cinema room/function room which is great for childrens parties, exercise classes or conferences. We have a well-equipped meeting room which seats up to 6 people and our latest addition to Cafe 1809 is our beauty room. If you are a therapist looking to hire a room please do get in touch. We hope to have a variety of treatments available for our customers soon.

In addition to the extra space upstairs we also hire out the pavilion area downstairs. This is a lovely bright open space connected to the main cafe which is often hired for networking events or family and friends celebrations.

We hope we can make Our Space, Your Space.

Phase 2 of our website will launch on the 20th June and this will include our brand new healthy menu which we cannot wait to share with you.
