Hawthorn is based inside Southampton common just as you enter at the main entrance coming from the town. After the Gung ho 5km race Amanda my running partner and I saw the cafe' had advertised 3 course meal for £8 during lunch time. We were a bit sceptical on how the portions were going to be but we were hungry after our race in the heat from that afternoon. It was a very welcoming, chilled out cafe/restaurant with an outdoor area which looked onto a pond full of wild life dragon flies, frogs and gorgeous scenery.
For my starter I ordered a tuna salad which was delicious, full of flavour and great size for a Starter. For my main I ordered a chicken and pesto garlic pasta which again was packed with flavour it was the best pasta dish I've had in a very long time. Then for my pudding I ordered the fruit waffle with ice cream... seriously! This was amazing, I loved the selection of fruit and the waffle was huge with a big dollop of yummy vanilla ice cream. I honestly couldn't recommend this little cafe enough it was such a lovely finish to our amazing day.
I hope I didn't make you too hungry while reading
Lots of love
