Good good and service

A little piece of the continent in West Kirby. Lovely food and service. Everything is homemade and takes a little longer. Its well worth waiting for. Great evening experience!

Very impressed. A lovely atmosphere for an evening out with friends. The hosts make you feel very welcome and we couldn't fault the food, all so fresh and tasty. We will be back.

Great little place with fantastic food and Wine, This is a fantastic little restaurant tucked away. Of it day its a bustling coffee shop of and evening transforms in to a Chic like restaurant. You would think you were in Paris in a little romantic restaurant.

Called here for a morning snack earlier in the week as I have done on many occasions and it always satisfies. The staff are cheerful and always make you feel welcome. The homemade cakes are a too tempting. The only downside is a positive - I often pass and can't get a seat !

The Sweet Pea is a great café for breakfast/brunch. I've had the occasional lunch with friends and it has always been to a high standard. Service is very quick and efficient and the staff are always friendly. I'd go here before anywhere else in West Kirby for a wonderful and quirky meal. Also, great to just pop in for a... More

This place used to be the best place in West Kirby until 6 months or so ago. Since then customers have got the feeling that they are being taken for granted. The service has always been a bit slow but most regulars accept that. Come on - bring back the cheerful non grudging service!

Great place, 3rd visit, everything fresh, buzzing atmosphere. Friendly staff and independent. If you want fresh food at the right temperature (inc the salad) then you have to wait for it. Very very good value and thoroughly recommended.

This was an impulse meal at the Sweet Pea Cafe. We were on our way for for a curry when we decided to try it, and managed to secure the last available table. The venue is a bit bohemian and the menu more imaginative than other places. It was a bit chilly by the window nearest the door, but it... More

A lovely little cafe that we pop into from time to time for a sausage/bacon sandwich and a cuppa. A great place to meet family for breakfast. Never had an issue.

While visiting the U.K. this summer our friends from West Kirby treated us to an evening at the Sweet Pea. WOW! My daughter who is normally quite picky claims to have had the best meal of her life. We all wanted to lick our plates. The service was amazing. We'd fly across the pond from Nova Scotia just to have... More
