Newlands corner

Posted by DaveC | January 6, 2006 | 2 comments so far

My view of our refueling stop for the longer Mole rides!

The Kiosk at Newlands Corner sells commercial cakes rather than the handmade varieties sold at Box Hill. The cake of choice here for me is the Chocolate Muffin. It’s nothing special but you get exactly what it says on the wrapper. Goes down well with a cup of tea or Hot Chocolate.

Temptation – Probably the Bacon roll, very tasty but bound to sit heavy on the ride home. Resist!

    How has it taken me this long to find the cake section. And why are most of them written by Dave?…

    I was on a road ride summer 2009 and ground my way up the A25 climb to the top knowing I was getting a sugar drop. Cue a stop at this cafe. She had actually closed but was kind enough to let me have cake so I clocked this place for good attitude if nothing else. In fact, the cake was good and if I recall correctly a decent wedge of walnut cake. I look forward to trying the others reviewed too.

    I should probably clarify that in the ride mentioned above, it was not the NT kiosk I stopped at (it was closed) but the café over the road which has a small enclosed garden with benches.

    I have mixed views on the kiosk. The view is fantastic (thanks for being there ladies!), the bacon is cheap and not to my taste plus sin of sins, not cooked enough if you like it crispy. Last time I ordered a bacon bap I decided no more and fed it to a dog belonging to an attractive young lady, she was really chatty, her boyfriend was less impressed. Egg bap is now my favourite from the kiosk. Nice place to stop though, particularly after the long climb.
