No comments:

As many of you may be aware, I don't drink alcohol. However, I found myself entering Veeno Croydon Wine Bar due to their very appealing food options.

VEENO : WINE BAR AND LOUNGE A GEM IN THE HEART OF CROYDON

Veeno has a chain of 20 wine bars in the UK. They offer "spuntini" and authentic Sicilian wines.

In Italy it's custom to do something that is called an "aperitivo".

The aperitivo is when you have generally an alcoholic drink if you're a drinker or a non-alcoholic drink (like Aperol) to entice your appetite. Together with this drink you will also consume little snacks which in are usually salty in nature.

Me and Be were looking for a place to have lunch in. As we walked, we noticed this beautiful place which had to be Italian due to Italian biscuit bags displayed at the window.

We were very curious but at the same time you never know because there's not plenty of good places to have food in the area.

The outside is a modern grey which is very popular and I quite liked it.

We had a look at their menu and even though they are a wine bar they actually had lunch options.

As we entered the staff greeted us so warmly that already I was impressed. It was a genuine greet rather than a forced one.

They were promptly on hand and proactively looking to create the best customer experience.

We had a look at the decor and what I loved was that the decor was consistent throughout.

You can tell that a great deal of detail was put in to it to create that beautiful atmosphere. Has an elegant feel to it and actually leave Vines throughout.

I love how they have the desert displayed in the central part of veeno. If you have a sweet tooth like me you may not be able to resist ordering the desert.

We Had a look at the menu and found so many interesting options including an afternoon tea which is something I definitely want to go back and try.

We opted for the quick lunch option. The quick lunch option includes a drink and either a focaccia bread sandwich or a salad.

We opted for the salad and got a Caprese salad and a bresaola salad. a soft drink we got two diet Cokes.

All the ingredients were extremely fresh and as I could tell by the taste high in quality.

The manager tempted as in ordering the sweet as the sweet is made from an Italian t-shirts pastry chef with extended experience.

STRAZZANTI AND CO CAKE SLICE ALLE MANDORLE, HAZELNUT BY EMILIA STRAZZANTI

I found it so interesting how the cake was actually gluten-free and manage to still taste fantastic.

The cake was very refined And definitely a must if you visit.

Those of you that are interested in vegetarian options they also cater to vegetarians.

Unfortunately because I don't drink I'm unable to give you enlightenment when it comes to that whine but I'm sure that they offer a great selection as they specialise in this.

I am so happy that they are first such a great lunch menu which I would happily go back for as I absolutely adore prezola and mozzarella di bufala.

If you're not a fan of the following they do have plenty of more options which you can browse through on this menu link.

This place is definitely a little gem in the heart of Croydon.

The decor is to die for, the food is of high quality and I can't stress enough how good the customer service is there.

I know that when there is excellent customer service and good food I am sure that I will make this place one of my main places to go to.

I love that the staff that they had was Italian making it even more authentic. I admire the thought that has gone into creating such a wonderful place.

THIS IS A MUST GO TO PLACE IN CROYDON.
