Need time as can be very busy. Great pastries and enjoy the food overall. Not a lot of space so consider take away and go to the park.

We enjoy a beautifully cooked breakfast. Sat on the bar stools because the place was humming at 8.30 on a Saturday morning. Food and tea were excellent. Be prepared to pay a bit more but well worth it.

A delightful light lunch of grain salad with haloumi and the tarte flamiche, with austrian beer and glass of wine - Silo never disappoints. And of course,a slice of delicious fruit tart to take home.
