Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Venetia’s was a symbol of demographic change when it first opened in 2006, as one of Chatsworth Road’s first independent cafés focusing on well-considered local ingredients. Its pleasant, artsy interior – scuffed wooden floors, white wood-panelled walls and goldfish tank – may now look a bit old-hat compared to newer, hipper premises nearby (such as Shane’s and Creperie Du Monde), but its reputation as a place to enjoy excellent coffee remains. The flat white and latte we enjoyed on a Sunday morning visit were perfectly made.

The food was less notable, with a menu of mainly toast- or pastry-based breakfasts and a large selection of sandwiches. Halloumi, houmous and red pepper sandwich would have been more appetising had the halloumi been grilled (as stated) and the ciabatta not been a little tired. Alternatively, you might plump for a BLT or a classic ham, emmental and mustard; or, for a healthier choice, try one of the freshly made vegetable juices. The menu may not be especially exciting, but Venetia’s remains a stalwart on the street, thanks to its community noticeboard, shows of local artists, free Wi-Fi and the sizeable terrace at the back.
