Hidden away on Bridge Street in lovely Berwick is the equally lovely Doolally.
It lives up to its name. Continental-style chairs sit incongruously alongside garish flowery table-cloths. The busy walls (which include local notices and posters) complement the general feeling that this was cobbled together without too much care.
…and that’s just the kind of atmosphere I like.
It is relaxing, friendly, and utterly non-pretentious, apart perhaps from the “café bistro” title.
As well as expensive dinner options there are light bites and plenty of cakes and scones. But it’s possible to sit with just a coffee at most times of day. There are daily papers available and it altogether quite charming.
Previously, Café 52.
