A Nottingham cafe is serving a range of ‘English classic’ toasties, which includes Sunday roast, all day breakfast and fish and chips.
The Wonderland Café, on Station Street, is trialling the unusual sandwiches for one month and is hoping to add them as a permanent menu addition.
Other options include bangers and mash, chicken dinner and chips, gravy and mushy peas – all of which follow a British theme.
Prices start from £3.95 – less than the Sunday roast delivery service, which recently launched in the city.
Cafe owner Ashley Hudson said: “We started off by doing a simple cheese toastie – but then realised people won’t travel for a cheese toastie – so we experimented sticking with the English theme and this is where it led us.
“Alice in Wonderland is English so I really wanted to do toasties with a British theme – everything on our menu is British.
“We’ve had a lot of interest in them – the chicken dinner has been the most popular.”
The Alice in Wonderland-style cafe has been open for three months and currently specialises in lunch and afternoon tea – but hopes to begin trading in the evening.
Plans include to build a cocktail bar, Victorian-style living room and interactive woodland area using restored wood from local nature reserves.
A crowd funding page has been set up to raise £12,000, which will also help to purchase equipment to implement the new menu.
Ashley, who lives in Beeston, said: “We want to do a tea party but with cocktails in the evening – so keeping with the mad hatter theme you’ll get a see through tea pot with cocktails and fruit in it.
“Our main market is people getting off the train who are either starting their night or visiting the city – so hopefully they will come here.
“I just want to make the experience bigger and better. The crowd funding is not really about me, it’s about making this the best that it can be because I don’t feel like it’s reached its potential yet.”
