Rokeby Rd has been blessed with some exciting new food destinations over recent months - the Frenchy masters behind The Loose Box and Choux brought Bistro Des Artistes and Llama bar recently classed up its fit out and added a new restaurant menu. I also discovered the hidden, rustic European wine bar, Juanita’s too. The Walk Café is another jewel to add to the list.

I ordered the salad piled high with roquette, roast pumpkin, soft goats cheese and a tender grilled chicken filet for good measure. Abundantly lean. The risotto of the day was a classic combo of pea, mint and goats cheese - unpredictably amazing. The pasta dishes - parpadelle with slow cooked meat and fresh herbs; and a fettuccine with pumpkin, ricotta and chilli - were each hard to flaw.

You can also get a nice brunch, superb Fiori coffee and snappy table service. We all enjoyed our meals so much that we agreed we needed to venture out to Subi for round two at The Walk soon!
