” Cooking is all about people. If we are vibrant, fresh and full of life so is our food, if people leave us with even just a little bit of this, we’re happy “.

Janey Dornheim | Owner

We believe good food goes beyond simple ingredients. Having an enjoyable meal is as much about the environment and company as it is about the food. With this in mind, we have tried to create an environment at The Wild Fig that is welcoming and inclusive, where our customers can relax and be themselves.
Many of our customers have commented that our cafe is quite “intimate” but also that this is part of it’s charm. Our place is one where you are likely to end up talking to your (very near) neighbour or to one of our team working in the kitchen.


It goes without saying that food should be delicious, but we pride ourselves on ensuring this regardless of dietary restriction or choice. Our Gluten Free and Vegan options are naturally delicious, lovingly and creatively made with our team in the kitchen who are skilled at coming up with new recipes.


We are very lucky to live and work in such a beautiful area of the country, and to also have a wealth of wonderful local food and drink on our doorstep. We source most of our ingredients locally, and change our menus and products in line with the changing seasons to keep our menu local and fresh.


We make everything in the Cafe ourselves from scratch, apart from the Bread that we use (we leave that to the Bakers). Our kitchen is small but always a hive of activity to keep up our range of dishes and homemade cakes. We also love doing catering orders for both private and business events locally.


” There’s no great food without a great team”.

Mostly behind the scenes, Janey spends her time doing all the bits no-one else wants to do, like the accounts . A life long passion for healthy food combined with an interest in good quality coffee is brought into The Wild Fig as well as organising bespoke catering for local events. Out of work she might be found out on the water on her Stand Up Paddle Board or chilling out with Yin Yoga.


After many years of frustration sitting behind a desk in an IT department, Wolfie (aka Volker, to give him his proper German name…) finally realised his ambition to talk to people all day (mostly about music), whilst making the Best Coffee in Town. After work, he’s happiest spending time with his family, Janey and son Oren, three cats…and of course, his music.
