I'm a regular here, and it's always impressive. Best coffee for miles, imaginative menus and great staff / owners and service. Always a friendly welcome.

Discovered this total gem of a place about a year ago and stop here almost weekly for a coffee. It's got such a nice independent feel and the staff always greet us with a big smile :D the only food I've tried is the sweet treats and pastries off the counter which are insanely delicious (especially the chocolate truffles and...

Burgers half price on a Monday delicious. Desserts and cakes not their strong suit. Staff were fabulous and went out their way to make me feel comfortable as a solo diner on business.

After a long tiring dreary day, this cafe was close by and recommended by guest house owner. It was great: cold beer, nice wine and good food. A great way to refresh and re-charge our spirits! The cafe has an extensive menu and some great dessert items. Only half a block from the train station too!

While having a lovely ambiance and friendly staff, Ordered a mocha along with some eggs benedict to go with it. Firstly, the meal was really tasty (that's some good Hollandaise sauce!) and of a good portion as well. However, the coffee itself was fairly average. Not amazing but definitely not bad in any way. The espresso was a tad too... More

Lovely cafe. The coffee is good and they do freshly squeezed orange juice too! We had breakfast there and the menu is versatile, but if you come later they serve pints and cakes and burgers too.

We were looking for somewhere to have a snack before going to The Mayflower. Found this by accident and we couldn't have done better. Coffees, London Pride ales and a toastie each. Service with big smiles, food delicious with nice thick toast and yummy cheese. Food being served to others looked excellent quality and presented well. Will recommend to many... More

I had missed a train connection and had a wait of one hour looming. First I tried a sandwich bar on the station but decided to look elsewhere. A very short walk just over one minute takes you to Frobisher House and the Caffexpresso. As mentioned in other reviews the outside is modern and plain and you could be mistaken... More

Like many people me and my partner were visiting the Mayflower theatre Southampton. My parter had visited this restaurant before and told me it was good. When we arrived, I was dubious of the exterior. To be honest I thought it was just a pokey cafe. She persisted and I accepted to eat there. Was greeted immediately by friendly staff... More
