THE Summer Wine town of Holmfirth has an abundance of small cafés and coffee shops, some tucked away among the ginnels, church yard and lanes of this popular local area.

One of the most visible of them is Scufflers Coffee Shop, conveniently situated alongside the main Crown Bottom car parking area and popular with shoppers, young mums and visitors to the town.

Scufflers has long been a popular watering hole for myself, friends and my mum when we visit Holmfirth. It’s convenient for either a coffee or lunch and never fails to deliver on soups, sandwiches, delicious cakes etc.

Run by Michael Milnes and his team, the food is always good and delivers a tasty plateful along with affordability and choice.

Walk into Scufflers and there’s a choice of traditional tables and compact half-moon tables against the wall with high stools. Although Scufflers is only small, it can accommodate a surprising number of diners, and older children in particular always enjoy sitting on a high stool alongside mum.

Whenever I’ve been to Scufflers, it’s always been busy - presumably a sign of its popularity and convenient central location. Despite this, staff always get the orders out in good time and everything is freshly prepared to order.

Take a look at the menu and it’s a good mix of home made soup, sandwiches, paninis, specials and delicious cakes.

A child’s menu is also available along with a good choice of coffees and hot/cold drinks.

Every day diners can choose from a home made soup and a range of sandwiches, paninis and toasties made from a wide range of meats and cheese.

Sandwiches are served with a generous side salad and coleslaw. A monthly lunchtime special is also available which is sometimes a sandwich or a quick snack such as crumpets served with either butter, jam and Marmite.

On the day we visited, the homemade soup on offer was mushroom which came with a hearty piece of bread and was quite delicious.

Thick and rich, it was homemade soup as it should be and it really touched the spot on a cold winter’s day.

We also ordered a ham and mature cheese toastie to share which came with a tasty freshly made salad and following the soup, was certainly large enough for two.

Looking at the cakes on display, which included a luxury carrot cake, a sticky ginger cake and a hearty chocolate offering, we were certainly tempted but decided we were too full. Maybe next time!

Two cappuccinos rounded off our meal perfectly, especially as coffees come with the addition of a free slimline biscuit!

For a good lunch, or just a quick coffee, call in at Scufflers!
