Hello and welcome to the Brynmill Coffee House blog! We’re delighted to meet you: we are now four months old and we’ve made lots of lovely friends during that time. It’s been a joy to see how enthusiastic our customers are about Mary’s real American cooking – recipes she has treasured and developed during years of living in Memphis before we moved to the UK.
It’s hard to single out one dish as our most popular, because each of our daily specials has its own band of fans who come in on the day that dish is available. Be sure to check out our flyers to see what is available throughout the week.
In developing the Brynmill Coffee House menu, it was important to make our dishes wholesome and authentic so we sourced special US-style beef hot dog sausages for our hot dogs, beautiful artisan breads from the Little Village Bakery and the best quality meats, vegetables and cheese we could find.
The coffee is, of course, as important as the food, and after shopping around we settled on the rich and rounded taste of the beans from James Gourmet Coffee in Ross on Wye. Besides the usual cappuccinos, espressos and lattes we wanted to offer US-style Joe to Go: great value filter coffee that’s perfect to grab on your way to work or classes. We like to think our little coffee house is sending many students, lecturers and dog walkers into Singleton Park a little wider awake and more refreshed in the mornings than they would otherwise be!
Now we’ve got our daytime offering running smoothly, we are starting to plan our evening openings on Thursday and Friday nights. This will begin in October, when we have some great musicians booked to provide laid back acoustic music, starting with local star Steve Balsamo and friends. Mary is also working on a new selection of evening dishes, which promise to excite those who have fallen for her US-style cooking. There are even rumblings of a US savoury-breakfast-style spread on some evenings. Watch this space…
