Our Coffee Shop

The Food Gallery Coffeeshop, Marlborough

The Art of Fine Food & Coffee

Our customers list several important reasons for visiting our Coffee Shop as often as possible. They say that the ambience is relaxed, good-humoured and witty, yet discreet

Our gourmet sandwiches are superbly tasty, hand-built to customers’ exact specifications and fresh as fresh can be.

We provide a window on the High Street which is positioned for quiet observation of Marlborough’s comings and goings.

We have a superior selection of fine food produce, from drizzles to fabulous fudge, from meringues to chilli-chocolate. Achieving the highest quality possible is paramount at The Food Gallery and is the basis for all we do.

We do good coffee

During your visit to the shop, and in the course of reading this website, you will notice that we’re extremely proud of our coffee.

If you’re an early bird and tend to visit the shop just after opening time, you’ll no doubt have witnessed Bob during his “test phase” – eyes closed with intense concentration, tiny glasses of espresso lined up in readiness for the taste test, perfect amounts of crema atop each shot.

Joking aside, its incredibly important for us to maintain the quality of an espresso – its our benchmark of excellence.

Bob’s procedures are carried out every single day and throughout the day to check the performance of the machine, tweaking and adjusting the grinder for perfection.

In fact, he’s kept customers waiting until he’s satisfied to serve their coffee of choice.

We believe it pays off, and, according to your feedback, so do you.

Ham sandwich/brownie/coffee combo – all perfect – a real treat on the way back to London. So glad we didn’t go on the M4!!

Our belief in your rights to true indulgence

Of course its not just all coffee and brownies.

We serve the finest quality teas, served in bone-china cups and from bone-china teapots. Our hot chocolate (dark, white or chilli chocolate madam?) is made from melted pieces of the smoothest Belgian chocolate, then sprinkled liberally with marshmallows, if you so desire.

We also serve freshly made soup (chilled in the summer), the most comforting slices of freshly made cake, cup cakes and home made dark and white chocolate florentines and delicious tiffin.

Everything we serve and sell is mouth-watering and truly, truly indulgent.

Fruit smoothies, iced coffees, and incredible milk shakes and flip-flops provide an excellent summer combination. Our delicious ice-cold drinks are available in gorgeous flavours and come in transparent cups so you can flash them around Marlborough, tempting your friends with their jewel-like colours.
