Deli-Licious, Cannon St, Preston
Just a quick post on a little cafe we discovered whilst in town visiting yesterday's Lancashire Market, and the Harris Flights, wanting a light lunch we decided to give this dinky little venue a try and we weren't disappointed, now were not talking high end here, its a cafe but its a great stop for very good value freshly prepared food with the added bonus of a number of Polish specialties being included on the menu.
The staff were really friendly and welcoming (apparently a husband and wife team of Chef Tomasz and Laura front of house), I ordered one of the house specials of a hot roast beef roll with onion gravy and Mr LF ordered a "Zapiekanka" or mushrooms and cheese on a toasted baguette I was very tempted by the Pierogi and Polish specialty soups but as its still August and fairly warm, I think I'll save those until a cold rainy day. Deli-Licious was also serving on the day we visited, Torunska a smoked polish sausage with homemade coleslaw and cucumber dip which tempted me too !
Both dishes were generous and very filling, my roll came with skinny fries and the gravy was awesome, rich in onions and definitely homemade, the Zapiekanka was pronounced delicious and was served with a lovely fresh seasonal salad. Drinks are also very reasonably priced, we have tea and a hot chocolate (in August ! I know !) and our bill was just over £13 all in, an absolute bargain.
Sorry no piccies of the food as we were very hungry and the food disappeared quickly, so much so that we didn't need to eat for the rest of the day.
The cafe is easy to find, just off Fishergate on Cannon St in Preston City centre. I would arrive early as I am sure it gets packed, it was pretty full when we visited, they do however do take out too and apparently their cooked breakfast is awesome as well.
