OUR TEAM, OUR CULTURE AND OUR STORY
There are certain characteristics that sit at the centre of everything we do. Why do we do what we do? What is the reason? Well, we at Café Ventoux are passionate about ‘the experience’. We want to provide the best possible experience our customers could expect when visiting a café/restaurant.
This manifests itself as soon as you visit Café Ventoux. Firstly, you’ll notice the building is no ordinary café building. Customers sit in a climate controlled space, cool in the summer and warm in the winter. They enjoy views over the beautiful rolling Leicestershire countryside. Our menu is prepared by a chef whose previous role was senior sous chef at a local Michelin guide restaurant. Our speciality coffee is locally roasted and prepared by baristas. Our staff welcome costumers with a smile, always happy to help.
First time at the cafe today, brilliant, great food and drinks, great staff, a welcomed half way stop off on a long ride, will certainly be back again soon!
Everything we do is governed by our core values. These values give us all direction, they help us mould our future and they describe everything we’re about. These values are
Absolutely amazing breakfast, every item was perfectly cooked and flavoured so well. The scrambled tofu was so nice, and this is how mushrooms should be on a breakfast 😋 I didn’t leave a crumb 😂 also a choice on plant milks and I saw vegan friendly cakes on offer too, will be back!
