This is the place I always go for cake and tea, the cakes are so so good, especially the gateaux's. This is a great place for lunch, and i always take friends here who are visiting Chester, you are guaranteed a great lunch or tea and cakes.

We first discovered Zuger's on our last trip to Chester and enjoyed it so much we went there again (twice) on our recent visit last weekend. It really is a lovely place and the food and cakes are superb. We were staying in the Macdonalds Hotel along the road but rather that have breakfast in the hotel we went to... More

Visited with my mum. The cakes were delicious, the staff were very friendly and the cafe itself was decorated lovely in time for Valentines Day. We will definitely return!

This is our favourite coffee stop in Chester -why? Because you get a pot of coffee for 2 that has at least 2 to 3 cups each, and a teacake of a generous size with 4 pats of butter. Unlike other local coffee chains, there is ALWAYS a free newspaper to read, and the staff are so helpful. Our experience... More

Came across this lovely bakery/ coffee shop whilst on a festive weekend away in Chester. I could not resist the most beautiful Gingerbread Houses that were in the window . They had just closed for the day and saw that I was looking in the window. They very kindly reopened the door and kindly asked if I needed anything. (... More

Our occasional visits to Chester would not be complete without a visa to Zugers for either coffee or lunch. This time it was coffee and we were lucky to get a table straight away, as at 11.00 a short wait is par for the course. Wait, or no wait, the coffee is good and the accompaniments excellent. As someone who... More

Popped in late afternoon so not so busy. Light, modern surroundings. Coffee & tea both nice. We tried the baked cheesecake & coffee and apricot cakes, both were really tasty. We will pop back again when we are next in Chester.
