Cheltenham branch - why are we waiting?!

Ordered a cooked breakfast, cafe only had a handful of people in it at the time. Waited a good 45 minutes for the food to appear, and when it did they forgot the hash brown and it was only just warm. Hygiene of cutlery was awful with congealed bits of previous use stuck to them. Also the plastic... read more

Place is ok but the coffee machine often seems to be broken and the filter coffee is too strong. Cutlery is not always "the best" but generally it is ok when in the area or when shopping. They seem to run out of things and be unable to get more even though you can see them in the store! So... More

The worst cafe ever. Its dirty, theres never enough cutlery, the service is slow and some staff are rude and seriously unhelpfull. I wonder how they pass the hygiene tests. They often cant sell coffee, (in a coffee shop!?), because the machine is broken. If you ask a staff member for something, I.e a spoon, you will often be greeted... More

Food wasnt great - just ok.Very basic and no more.no less.The cafe needs to be designed better as it felt like i was eating in the main supermarket.Screens would be good to make it less intrusive and more private.There is only a low wall seperating the cafe from the store.Screens need putting on top of the wall.

Sainsburys Cafe is bright light and airy and serves a great variety of meals as well as the usual light bites, snacks etc. the cafe is always clean and tidy and plates are cleared promptly. There is a popular menu which is changed regularly. The staff at Hereford branch offer an excellent service and nothing is too much trouble.

Fairly standard supermarket but spacious airy café, good range of breakfasts from snacks to full English - best of all, good options for vegetarians.
