Visit Cafe Cafe The Loggia cafe The Loggia cafe is open for a range of lunches, snacks, hot and cold drinks and cakes, all freshly cooked here at Dixter. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options are available. Please inform staff if you have any special dietary requirements or allergies and they will endeavour to help. The spring of 2019 saw the completion of a new kitchen and catering improvements at the Loggia. A home-cooked and hearty offering is available incorporating produce grown in the vegetable garden, alongside tea, freshly ground coffee and home-made cakes. Seating is located at tables in the shop garden and under the cover of green-roofed shelters. Please note: no picnics in the garden. Tables are provided on the grassy car parks for those wishing to bring picnics with them. You can visit the cafe without buying a ticket to access the house and garden. Please follow the signs to the nursery through the car park. Packaging and the environment We have sourced a range of packaging that is compostable, recycled, recyclable or degradable for serving our food and drinks. Items that look like plastic (cold drink cups, cutlery, hot drink lids etc.) are made from plant-based PLA and are compostable and carry 79% less embodied carbon than plastic. The plates are made from recycled sugar cane and carry much less carbon than paper plates. The napkins are made from recycled fibres and are unbleached. The carrier bags we use in the Shop are made from corn starch and are degradable. Our milk comes from a mile down the road at Northiam Dairy.
