Passionate about food

At Café Ambio we are passionate about offering the best quality coffee, drinks and food served in great surroundings by pleasant and courteous people.

We spent a great deal of time in finding the right coffee for Café Ambio, we wanted to use the best beans, roasted just the way they should be, we believe we have found the right blend and offer a great cup of coffee.

We place a strong emphasis on home baking and local flavours, our scones are baked in our kitchens several times a day ensuring freshness and quality.

Our smoked salmon and shrimp terrine, made in our production kitchens in Flookburgh can be found on the shelves in the food hall at Selfridges on London’s Oxford Street and is available through mail order at

All our cafés offer the same high standards of food and service, whilst
retaining their own individuality.


Locally Sourced  Food

We are constantly buying locally sourced food, helping local businesses and farmers. We even grow many of our own produce in the kitchen gardens at Astley Park.
