Cafe Viola had lots of choices for food and drink on their menu. What we really liked was that the options were varied and not the standard options you get at other cafes. Personally, we would recommend the Meatball Jacket Potato and Bailey's Hot Chocolate
Dogs are welcome inside and you can sit anywhere you like which makes a nice change. There aren't any water bowls or treats but the food made it worth a visit anyway.
The staff obviously love dogs but are unable to actually pet them which I suspect is because of food regulations. We noticed that all the employees kind of wave above your dogs head as away of greeting them. They were more than happy to provide a scoop of vanilla ice cream in a container for your pooch.
We really enjoyed our visit and the decor was lovely.
Worth noting that dogs are not allowed inside during the evening so best to visit for breakfast or lunch. The venue is open on a Sunday and the tills shut an hour before closing time!
Toilet available and pay and display parking nearby. The cafe does not have It's own car park.
Knowle is a cute town with lots of shops so worth visiting if you are local. Brueton and Malvern Park are a short drive away and are a great place to walk your dog.
