A mother and daughter independent delicatessen and cafe is the first caterer in Windsor to win a council healthy eating award.
Louise Lewis, 54, and Stephanie Methven, 27, owners of the Limes Cafe in Market Street, have won the Catering for Health award given out by the Royal Borough.
The accolade is a national scheme run by council authorities and recognises caterers who use healthy food preparation methods and offer healthy eating options.
Mother-of-two Louise, who opened with her daughter in August, said they were 'delighted' to win it and 'proud' to be recognised.
She said: "We have a good local following and it is nice to be part of the community.
"Now it is Easter we should be even busier with all the tourists."
Everything the cafe serves up is handmade and freshly prepared from sandwiches to salads and afternoon teas.
The award scheme sees caterers visited by a borough dietician who tests their hygiene and healthy eating before deciding whether the award is given.
