[GIFTED] Nestled away just on the outskirts of Coulsdon town centre is The Light Bar – a cafe by day and bar by night.
I had passed by so many times since it’s recent opening and never had a chance to stop until the other day when I popped along for breakfast with a friend.
The decor is cool and edgy and something a little different to what you usually find in Coulsdon which makes for a very refreshing change.
We were greeted with a warm smile and given a menu to peruse. Breakfast was well catered for and you could have something as simple as a pastry to a full English breakfast, tasty treats on sourdough bread, gorgeous bagels and lots more.
For those of you that have followed me for a while will know I have a bit of a thing for pancakes and The Light Bar didn’t disappoint. The fluffy and light pancakes were served with yogurt and berries and I could have easily gone back for more; whilst my friend opted for the avocado on sourdough which was presented beautifully and I was told it tasted as good as it looked!
We sat for a while chatting over great coffee and taking a look at everything else they had to offer, and there really is a vast choice of things to do.
The Light Bar has an equally good lunch menu and I think aside from the quality of the food what really stood out for me was the great prices, which isn’t always easy to find these days.
They run special events such as afternoon teas and bottomless brunches(which we are already planning on coming back for).
In the evenings they offer a huge range of cocktails, a resident DJ on a Saturday night and even the option of private hire and I can assure you it would be the perfect venue for a party.
I was super impressed with my first visit and will certainly be back very soon…probably to try out that bottomless brunch!
