Vintage Retreat Tea Room
Vintage Retreat is the name given to a delightful collection of vintage shops located within a two-floor building in Northampton – when you arrive, don’t forget to gaze in wonder at the giant elephant on the roof! Visitors to Vintage Retreat are perfectly served by its tea room, which is light, spacious and airy and run by friendly staff. It’s the ideal place to relax and refuel after your retro shopping spree.
Naturally, food and drink are served on mismatched vintage plates, and the tea room offers a mouthwatering array of dishes, starting with a solid breakfast selection (served until 2pm). Options include Full English with locally sourced Old English pork sausages, and spinach pancakes with hollandaise sauce. For lunch, choose from the daily specials, plus sandwiches, wraps, melts, jackets and more. Expect a good range of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options, plus a tempting array of cakes.
Vintage Retreat Tea Room is open seven days a week, 10am to 5pm (4pm on a Sunday).
