Best baked potato ever

I happened to stop by the Green Oasis Cafe on London Road, Leicester today to grab some lunch while on a conference. I hadn’t really noticed it before. There used to be a really cute cafe there 10 years ago that I used to visit while I was at the uni, and when it shut down I just kinda forgot about it.

So I had a very pleasant surprise today. It is family run and the service isn’t necessarily the speediest but I was given the finest baked potato known to man . Mediterranean chicken, grilled with a ton of cheese and a lovely crispy jacket. And it was HUGE!

For just  £2.00 it had the best food to money ratio I’ve seen for many a year. Do yourself a favour and pop in. Its not all fine dining here you know  -sometimes you just need some proper home cooked food.

  • Thanks for stopping by! They have a lot of the usual cafe food but also some Moroccan specialties so definitely worth a look :)

  • A really good jacket potato is a thing of beauty – I'll definitely be giving this place a go! Thanks for sharing :-)
