Hug is all about great freshly cooked homemade food and drink to warm the soul. It’s a new concept, offering comfort food for everyone from our café on Market Hill in Diss.
From 8am to 3pm Monday to Saturday, Hug will offer a great appetising range of simple but comforting dishes on a constantly changing seasonal menu.
You can start the day with eggs cooked anyway you like on sourdough toast with great accompaniments such as bacon, smoked salmon or portobello mushroom. Our delicious slow-cooked porridge comes with a choice of toppings, you may prefer pancakes or our hearty breakfast butty.
Later in the day, Hug will offer an enticing and ever-changing menu; including fresh homemade soup with homemade bread, a choice of hot and cold sandwiches in bloomer bread and a healthy salad bowl with dressing on the side. We will always have a vegan option on our menu.
Whatever you choose, you will know that when you come to Hug you will enjoy great food and drink, sourced from ethically, environmentally friendly and socially responsible produce.
Hug is run by chef James Richardson-Thacker, who is already well-known locally as owner of the Fox & Hounds pub in Great Moulton. James said: “I’m confident that Diss will embrace the concept of Hug and our great range of comforting food. Although environmentally friendly and seasonal food is now very topical, in many ways what we are offering is very traditional with a modern twist.
“We’ve taken great care in looking at how we can reduce the impact on the environment so there is no single use plastic, we’re reducing packaging to a minimum and it’s all biodegradable.”
Hug is also hoping to put something back with the introduction of Three Chocolate Elephants – delicious hot chocolate drinks where 50p from every one bought will be donated to a charity involved in saving elephants.
Hug is now open Monday to Saturday from 8am to 3pm on Market Hill in Diss.
