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

This is a place you want to visit again and again. I just enjoy the lovely food, atmosphere and good service. My kind of place.

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

Five of us ate here early evening on 25th March before going to the Mayflower. Because of train times we didn't have a lot of time to eat, so just had a main course. We tried the chicken and squash curry, which came with rice and onion bhaji, and the fish pie. Both were fresh and tasty. Just the right... More

If you fancy fresh and top-quality food, here you are, that's the place to go to. Nice service and atmosphere. The only criticism about this place is the lack of deals on food, it may be a productive suggestion. I will definitely be back.

We chose to eat here having read other reviews - as it is only a couple of minutes walk to the theatre. The food was delicious. We both chose the lasagne and chips, both of which were very tasty indeed. Homemade and generous portions. With thanks.

Having just brought an electric guitar and Amp in a shop opposite we wondered into this cafe one rainy Friday late afternoon for cover and to consider how we were going to get this equipment back to the car park. The atmosphere was buzzing friendly folk, lovely warm and inviting staff. We sat down with a bottle of beer and... More

this place has some of the best cakes you can eat and a good chance you will see some of the cast from any show on at the Mayflower.

I ate here back in July. I was on my own and going to the theatre so wanted something quick. The food was lovely, all home made and good value. The atmosphere was such that I felt comfortable eating on my own. I ran out of time for dessert but was kindly given it in a takeaway container complete with... More
