Welcome to Mint Cafe

Hi, thanks for taking the time to look at our website

My husband Rob and I have owned Mint Café since September 2013. We have decorated internally and invested in new indoor and outdoor seating. We hope you like the improved look.

We also (immediately) dispensed with the existing deep fat fryer. No more deep frying of chips or burgers. We hope you appreciate the improved smell (or lack of it)!!

We are pleased to offer:-

  • Great Value Breakfasts
  • Delicious lunches including:-
  • Daily Specials, Freshly Prepared Salads, Sandwiches, Toasties, Baguettes, Paninis, Jacket Potatoes and Omelettes
  • Classic Afternoon Cream Teas
  • Luxury Afternoon Teas (booking required).
  • Our Luxury Afternoon Teas are served with the use of
    three tier cake stands and Bone China cups!!

We are also pleased to announce that we have an alcohol licence to serve beer/wine - with a meal.

We are open 7 days:- 7.30am to 5pm Monday to Saturday and 10am to 4pm Sundays

Our full menu will be served until closing time.

We will NEVER turn you away if you would like something to eat or drink during our opening hours. If you order at 5pm we will serve you with pleasure.

We will NEVER make you feel uncomfortable by cleaning around you and putting tables on chairs.

We hate that!! (It’s just plain rude)


We use Dorrington’s Bakers for our bread, Simon Dennis for our meat, & Mike’s for our fruit and vegetables


We use Cafe Direct fresh espresso coffee beans - it has a fantastic flavour, is organic and fair trade, and is made with coffee beans grown around the Machu Pichu area of Peru - the perfect cup of coffee!


Our wines are exclusive, in Sawbridgeworth, to Mint, supplied by local resident Matt Birch, owner of Durrants Fine Wines


Just ask us for the code


We would welcome the opportunity to quote on any catering requirements you may have. For example; home and childrens parties, business lunches, evening functions.


In my spare time (!) I also design a range of fused and slumped glass. It’s beautiful, and some of it is on display in Mint Café. Please also take a look at my Website


If you would like something specially designed, I am happy to undertake commissions.


Rob and I have lived in Sawbridgeworth for 17 years. It’s a lovely place. We want everyone that comes into Mint Café to have a nice time. We would be mortified if you didn’t!

Love Michele
