Darlington has so many lovely cafés for a town so small. This is my second visit this week to Robineau’s Café in Cockerton – lucky girl!
Between the six of us, we’ve had the Salad of Air-dried Ham, Mozzarella & Figs,Pan Fried cutlets of Spring Lamb served with Pesto crushed new Potatoes, Peas and Sauce Vierge, Quiche Lorraine, Feta and Tomato Quiche, a Steakburger, children’s pasta, chips, and everything – absolutely everything – was just perfect.
And we bought some cakes and macaroons to eat at home, as you see. They also have some delicious plats à emporter, such as fish pie, lasagne and chicken and tarragon cobbler. It’s not cheap; it’s special.
A friendly, happy, efficient experience in old-fashioned serene-green surroundings. Dare I say it? I preferred it to Betty’s!
