Widcombe Deli has recently undergone a transformation, moving into new premises a few doors up from the original shop on Widcombe Parade.
Having worked in the corporate food industry in the past, owners Jon and Nicky took the opportunity to run this charming local deli and engage with the tight-knit community after moving to the area.
The couple prides themselves on independence when it comes to the deli – everything is home baked from locally grown produce and sourced goods from independent companies in the south west. The deli also has its very own brand of coffee called J.J Beano’s.
Everything is made to order, so customers can get exactly what they desire, and a firm customer favourite is the home baked quiche with a deliciously fresh salad.
Don’t just expect wonderful food and coffee, Jon and Nicky love to chat to customers and share local knowledge and stories, making each visit personal and unique. They want people to feel they are coming into their kitchen at home, so they have really worked hard on bringing a bit of their personality when decorating the new deli.
“Anyone can be taught to make a cup of coffee, but we want people working here to engage with customers and know how to have a chat,” says Jon. Talking to customers and hearing what they want has shaped the transformation of Widcombe Deli, giving local people a place to meet and talk in the company of fantastic local produce and delicious food.
