The nation’s favourite coffee shop, Costa Coffee, has launched its summer food menu.
The seasonal menu is packed with a collection of delicious dishes, from breakfast treats to hearty lunch options and tempting snacks. The range offers something for every food occasion, whatever the unpredictable British weather has in store.
The first must-try item is the Pastel De Nata, an on-trend, flaky custard tart. Hailed as the sweet dish of the summer, the classic Portuguese recipe is bound to be a winner.
Lined with layers of fine crispy pastry, the middle is generously filled with a sweet custard then lightly baked to give a golden caramelised top.
If you’re craving a savoury snack, the Cheese Scones and Cheese Twists will be a perfect choice. The Cheese Scone recipe has been carefully developed by Costa Coffee’s expert bakers and uses two indulgent kinds of cheese including mature Irish cheddar, chives and the warming spice of cayenne pepper.
The Cheese Twists feature all-butter puff pastry, two indulgent kinds of cheese including mature cheddar to give a rich cheesy flavour.
That’s a Wrap
Catering to all its customers’ dietary needs, Costa Coffee has developed the Chipotle Bean & Butternut Squash Wrap that is not only vegan but gluten-free too.
A soft wrap filled with a sweet and smoky chipotle chilli relish, roasted butternut squash, fresh spinach leaves and red onion with sweetcorn, black turtle beans and chopped coriander, it’s a Mexican flavour explosion – and less than 300 calories.
To perk up lunchtimes, Costa Coffee has a new range of dishes to satisfy appetites.
The Chicken & Bacon Caesar Wrap stars British chicken and smoked streaky bacon. Finished off with a luscious Caesar mayonnaise with mixed leaves and encased in a wheat tortilla wrap – a truly delicious option.
Fresh Salad Range
Costa Coffee’s fresh salad range features two new additions, the Chargrilled Chicken, Honey & Mustard Pasta Salad which includes a sweet mustard dressing with tomatoes, red peppers and spinach, topped with succulent British chargrilled chicken breast and fresh parsley.
For a veggie alternative, the Italian Mozzarella & Sun-dried Tomato Pasta Salad comprises an appetising sun-dried tomato dressing with tomatoes and spinach, topped with mozzarella cheese and Sun Blush baby tomatoes.
Have your Cake and Eat it
For customers with a sweet tooth, the new Passion Fruit & Coconut Loaf Cake is perfect to sooth fruity cravings – especially when paired with a summer Coconut & Watermelon Cooler.
The irresistible loaf cake is packed with modern tropical flavours, starting with a soft coconut sponge topped with passion fruit frosting and a tangy passion fruit curd drizzle. A bright, eye-catching dessert with perfectly balanced flavours that gives a real taste of summer.
Eric Tavoukdjian, Marketing Director at Costa Coffee commented: “We’re so excited to launch our new summer menu.
