Waterperry Gardens and Lassco's Coffee Shop, near Oxford

pumpkinhedge.jpgYesterday we found ourselves on a mystery trail, looking for pumpkins.  We found 7 of the 10 required pumpkins in Waterperry Gardens, near Oxford whilst doing the Great pumpkin hunt in their beautiful gardens.  What we weren't expecting was to find some delicious gluten free brownies in the tea room.  I can tell a good brownie when I see one, and this one was pretty good.  Best of all it was gluten free!  Further on down in the same direction we had a lovely cup of coffee at Lassco's.  If you haven't been here, I highly recommend it.  Lassco's is a reclamation yard with a difference.  They have the most amazing things for sale,gigantic pots, antique mirrors, enormous dog statues, the kind you see at Blenheim Palace and a shed full of old doors.  They also do reclamation flooring.  What you wouldn't expect iin a place like this is a very unique coffee shop, serving an ecclectic menu and even more amazing, gluten free cakes and brownies.  The Chef is a lovely lady called Claire, who trained down the road at the Manoir aux Quatre Saisons, so you know you are in for a real treat.  She has several gluten free regulars so she is well prepared to cater for them.  I highly recommend this place if you happen to be in the area.  It's great to see delicious gf food popping up in unexpected places.twosistasanddogLASSCOsm.jpg
