Elder Street Café & Deli is located in the grounds of Debden Barns, just outside the picturesque market town of Saffron Walden on the Cambridge/Essex border. We are a family orientated venue, offering a children's outdoor play area, extensive free parking and disabled access.
Are you looking for a hearty breakfast to start your day, a quick break for a drink, a leisurely lunch, a celebratory or romantic meal, an afternoon feeding the geese with the children, the perfect ingredient or inspiration for that last minute gift – we have something to cater for everyone’s needs.

Quality produce is abundant all within a stones throw of Elder Street from amazing honey to Thunderley Hall Farm's Organic Buffalo which features heavily on our Bistro grill menu.

A monthly farmers market featuring a wide range of local producers is held alongside the café by our neighbours at Debden Barns, a true foodies day out!

At Elder Street Café & Deli we are passionate about food and drink. Our aim is to provide the best local produce with flair and imagination. We offer great facilities, however the opinion that matters most is yours – so come and judge for yourselves. We look forward to seeing you soon.
