Audrey had scrambled eggs on Granary toast, I had what they call a three item breakfast . Two eggs 2 slices of bacon and one sausage, toast . The quality of the bacon and sausage was excellent , and obviously well sourced. Good service and worth every penny of the £ 12.00 with x 2 pots of tea.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review, It is great to see that the quality produce that we use is recognized, we try to source as much of our produce locally, it costs a little more, but we think its worth it. More

Went for breakfast with my son waited 15 minutes just to be spoken too. when the food came you could tell it was cheap food trying to look nice. Cold toast warm latte will not be back again. Weatherspoon is a better idea!

I cant believe you ate in one of our establishments, we are constantly being recognized for great customer service, and our warm welcome. To say the breakfast was using poor quality ingredients is utter rubbish, I can assure you that we buy top quality ingredients and it is cooked by professional chefs. The latte would have been made by one... More

Stumbled across Taste when we visited Dorchester for a few hours. The service was friendly and fast, and there were several items on the menu I would have liked to try! The food was very good and well priced - would definitely eat here again if we were in the area.

Been lunching here for years and love it. Good coffee and food, if a bit overpriced. But please stop changing the menu. Too many specials and less of the old favs. No ciabatta bread anymore!! Also often come (came) with a vegan but now nothing for him so he has gone elsewhere and I am now joining him as it's... More

Thank you for your comments, which are duly noted, we have tried to change the menu format, so we can introduce more local seasonal food to our menu, so we have reduced the fixed menu and have increased the Specials board, Please ask if we have Ciabatta as we often have them as a special still, they are just not...

Thank you for your review, and keep on coming for lunch, we try to design the menu around the capability of the kitchen to allow for when we are full, which is most lunchtimes, as we cook the food fresh there is sometimes a small wait, but never longer than the time to enjoy a good chat with your dining...
