The cabinet display held a wide variety of food, ranging from quiches, pastas, filled foccacia breads and gourmet pizzas to sweet delights such as muffins, cakes and slices. Modena also have an all day breakfast menu, which we decided to take advantage of.
We ordered our food and drinks, and took a seat outside. Papers and magazines are provided for your entertainment. Before long our drinks had arrived, with a pleasant, artistic swirl pattern piped onto the Moccacino with chocolate sauce. Top marks for presentation. Our food arrived within a reasonable time and was very delicious and excellent value for money.
After our meal, the lady at the counter thanked us for our visit.
Bathroom stop was needed after brunch, and I'm happy to say everything was clean and tidy.

Cheddar, Aged 12 months. Mild Smoke, great flavour and very versatile.
Sometimes simple is best, this delightful smoked cheese is great on crackers accompanied by a nice wine.
This rich & smokey cheddar cheese is amazing on platters. Just pair it with some salty crackers, organic olives and chunky chutney such as plum to bring out the flavours. Add a nice glass of wine and you are set.
