What do you do when the days get shorter and colder? You try and get out for walks and fresh air – and then you reward yourself with a tasty treat of course! Poole Quay is always a favourite haunt of ours for a wander and luckily for us, it’s filled with shops and restaurants just dying to feed us!
When we first moved to Dorset, we did live in Poole Quay and we were truly spoilt with a stunning view of the harbour as well as being in close proximity to a number of great restaurants and cafés. A place that really lured us in was The Quay Café .
Located smack-bang in the middle of the Harbour, you can sit inside with a hot drink and witness the bustle of activity on the water. Poole Quay is a busy little place, with boats and ships of all sizes coming and going. It can be quite therapeutic to just sit and watch the world go by… quite literally!
The Cafe seems so unassuming but inside, you’re greeted with a stylish, modern vibe. With an electric fire, books and a chess board, the little snug section is as cosy as can be.
The perfect place to sit and sip some hot chocolates (so good I photographed them twice, you’re welcome).
And indulge in some warm food… my take on ‘healthy eating’ is ordering a salad with something naughty. Logic does not live here!
The Quay itself is a beautiful place to have a wander in as just behind the Quay, you have Poole Old Town. Lined with gorgeous cottages and a beautiful church, it’s a lovely place to just escape the hustle and bustle of a busy town centre.
Even though we don’t live right in the middle of all this anymore, it’s always lovely to come back to.
