Went here for a work night out. The service was VERY quick and friendly and the food was excellent. There was a menu of 12 mini puddings. I was defeated after 5. Recommend to all

Would highly recommend this for a lovely breakfast - staff were really friendly, food was really quick to come and great quality - really nice bacon and sausages especially! Good value as well - and the café had a nice atmosphere.

A café that does light meals, Taste is in the centre of Dorchester so the only realistic parking is one of the town centre car parks. The dining room is nicely decorated in a modern style, pleasant, smart but not aggressively trendy. It is generally busy. The menu has all the normal elevenses fare, teas coffees. Cakes, scones etc plus... More

Two couples, we stopped for a light lunch. There was a good selection on offer. The crab and crayfish sandwiches had plenty of filling with a choices of white or brown bread. Although they were very tasty, I was disappointed that the white bread appeared to be a standard supermarket sliced sandwich loaf. For some unfathomable reason, I expected a... More

Once again an excellent meal in Taste. This time it was pie night. Wonderful Dexter beef pie with a great starter and pudding. Would certainly go again. Staff were great as always.

The moment you walk into Taste you will be guaranteed to be greeted by staff, especially the bubbly assistant manager. I quite often pop in for a healthy option lunch of salmon & crayfish salad after a mornings retail therapy in Dorchester! The menus is certainly extensive, as they do have a very busy kitchen with chefs beavering away. Chef... More

Having got fed up waiting to be served in Costa, we took a walk around Dorchester and can across this little café and ordered a couple of lattes to go. My partner likes his coffee strong so asked for an extra shot in his. He didn't need to in all honesty. The coffee here is well made and flavourful. A... More
