Our Service – How Does it work?
at Cafe ODE Ness Cove
Here are some little pointers to help you enjoy our cafe as much as we do:
cafe ODE is a very casual relaxed family friendly cafe and take away. We try to do things a little different here.
On arriving at the cafe the menu is in front of you written on tiles in a display window, there might be some additional specials of the day on boards inside the cafe. It is also a good idea to have a look around because we have various seating options, inside – the stable, the kitchen table, outside – top terrace, lower terrace and lawn area.
The entrance door to the cafe is by the large glass frontage hallway to your left, this takes you into the open kitchen – a working area where you will see all the chefs busy preparing the food and the coffee machine on the go. When you are ready to order if the hatch window outside is open, depending on weather we ask you to order here and pay, if closed you can order inside. A receipt with your order number is given to you which you will need to keep. We suggest you find somewhere you would like to sit, our cafe assistant or chef will bring the food, drinks once prepared and call out an order number to correspond with your ticket. If you choose to sit inside we have trugs that have our vegware cutlery and napkins (all compostable) in with some condiments on tables, if you are sitting outside you will notice at the bottom of the stairs to the top terrace is the cutlery, napkin, condiment table where you help yourself to everything you should need for your drink or meal . All the food is cooked fresh to order so at busy times we appreciate your patience and some items that are popular sell out very quickly.
We buy our fish according to the local market, you might even see the fishing guys coming in with their freshly line caught fish or shell fish, when the weather is not so good at sea we do not have as much selection and fish market prices can vary daily. Some of our meat is personally collected straight from the hunter or local farm, the chefs then prepare in various ways and these might only be available for short periods of time. Our menus are always changing daily, new items appearing frequently, we try to feature popular items on the menus but this depends on availability of produce and of course seasons.
Most of the food containers that your food is delivered in are compostable, same as the cultery and some of the drinkware, at the end of your meal if you are seated outside we ask if you would follow our recycling and composting procedures by using the bins provided on the lower terrace, thank you.
We try to communicate what we can to our customers about what we do and what we have to offer by writing information around the property so please take your time and read this info.
