Opposite the St John the Baptist church on Windsor High Street lies vibrant cafe Fitzroy and Bailey. This self described ‘cafe deli foodstore’ opened in November 2012 and has joined the wave of new coffee shops that have recently arrived in Windsor. Serving coffees, pains et viennoiseries, & cakes in the morning, followed by freshly made sandwiches at lunch time make this the perfect pit-stop for a snack.
The interior is smartly decorated, contemporary subway tiles line the walls and contrast nicely with the black and white marbled floor. As for the food, the menu is extensive but the sandwiches are the number one sellers here. Drinks include old favourites like Fentimans Ginger Beer, Old Fashioned Rose Lemonade, and Chegworth Valley Apple Juice.
WindsorGo dropped by Fitzroy and Bailey at lunch time and noticed a huge stack of baguettes which has just arrived (prepared each day by staff at the on site kitchen below).
We tucked into one of their scrummy sandwiches, a chicken and mango chutney baguette, along with a cheeky salted caramel brownie, Yum! Washed down with a Rose Lemonade, we were not disappointed. Staff were incredibly friendly both upstairs and below in the Kitchen (Who you’re likely to meet if you descend the stairs to the downstairs loo).
Although small Fitzroy and Bailey does have seating for eight and a small deli area at the back. Products include a wide selection of British, French and Continental cheeses, artisan and sourdough breads, along with some lovely Charcuterie & cured meats. Special deals at the time of writing include a free croissant with every coffee, weekdays from 8:30 am to 11:30 am. Also for Noodle Lovers out there, hand made ramen is available every Saturday from 6pm to last orders at 8:30pm. Worth a try! Catering Services are also available for Dinner parties, Birthdays, Family gatherings, as well as business events , gallery openings and made to order picnics to take up to Windsor Great Park!
