Thank you for your review. Looking at the scores on previous reviews, this person speaks his mind ( or has been very unlucky with the other places he has visited ) . His previous 12 reviews have an average score of just over 2 out of 5 - Phew ! (LOL) More

We went for lunch after reading other reviews on TripAdvisor. The staff were lovely and helpful accomodating my change of salad request. The starter of hummus and olives was delicious as was the Manwich and salad. Lovely relaxed atmosphere. Coffee was very smooth and one of the best I have tasted although one small quibble, I do like it a... More

Thanks you for taking the time to review our restaurant. We make everything from the basic ingredients so it is relatively easy for us to accommodate changes. We serve different coffee styles at different temperatures which we feel bring out the best flavours ( British spelling ) but if you request a hotter version, we would certainly replace with a...

I have visited this establishment in its previous guises and was pleasantly surprised at the excellent refurb that has happened since my last visit. The staff were very friendly and attentive but in no way overbearing. The food choice was excellent and I can absolutely recommend the eggs Royale. Fantastic coffee also. The only small disappointment was the use of... More

Definitely worth swerving the Costa's, Starbuck's, etc for - lovely authentic coffee, great service and brilliant food. Can't fault the simple breakfasts - tasty scrambled egg and salmon on 'rustic' toasted bread is so good, for lunch too. My 'meat loving son's' love the steaks, burgers, 'pulled pork' type things they have and they willingly rustle up a hot chilli... More

Thanks for the great review . We ought to point out that Caffe Atina is only 0.3 miles from the Cross. That is 6 minutes ( casual ) walking ( thank you google maps ) straight down Foregate Street - so not far out of town really and we think well worth the effort. The coffee is Segafredo - now... More

We were exploring Chester on a sunny Sunday morning and after strolling around the city wall we decided to find somewhere to get a late breakfast. We walked past a number of "chain" cafe's in search of something special and we had almost given up hope when we spotted the Cafe Atina. The staff made us feel very welcome and... More

The food in Caffe Atina is stunning, from the perfectly cooked poached eggs for breakfast, amazing waffles with bacon. To really classy, without being really expensive, main courses that are always so gutsy and real food. It's family run but not in a pushy way. I would genuinely eat every meal here if I could!

I arrived in Chester today and stumbled upon this cafe while looking for somewhere to have lunch. The goats cheese salad was absolutely delicious and the staff could not have been nicer. Will definitely be going back while on holiday in Chester!
