Unexpected little treasure of a cafe

Went on a trek around some local garden centres and remembered passing this place but never stopping before. Decided to pop in the cafe for lunch and we were very impressed - both the quality of food and the choice on offer - will definitely drop in again for the cafe alone. They even do evening... read more

The restaurant felt more like canteen with customers queuing up at the till to place orders. The tables were uncleared and sticky and the food was average at best.

In the day, we are primarily a coffee shop and have a traditional coffee shop counter, where you can order drinks, freshly made by our baristas and place an order for hot... More

Was welcomed on entering the restaurant. Had a deal monster voucher and the first time we had visited. Very impressed by the choice, quality and quantity of the food. The actual restaurant relaxing and pleasant surroundings. The service was excellent too. Would go back again and highly recommend this restaurant.

Dahlia's is either the coffee shop attached to a garden centre or a garden centre with a coffee shop, either way it's very good. Stopped for a coffee and cake having had it recommended to us. The coffee was nice and strong, ( just as I like it) and the scone I had was really lovely. My wife had a... More

What ever you do, do not go to this place for breakfast, and perhaps not for any other meal. We went there this morning at about 9.15. There were four people besides ourselves (2). We waited 25 minutes for sausage(dry and tasteless) rasher of bacon, 2 tinned tomatoes, a dessert spoon of baked beans and a poached egg, 2 slices... More

Hi Ian I am dismayed to hear that you did not enjoy your breakfast at Dahlia's Kitchen. We are always very popular for breakfasts and our customers return regularly, especially for our Saturday morning breakfast club, which offers two cooked breakfasts for £6.00. If you visit on a Saturday morning, this can get a little busy and so the wait... More

Thank you for your review. I notice that you said you visit regularly, so we must be doing something right. I agree that there is sometimes a wait at the counter, however, this is usually the case in all coffee shops providing a fresh ground, barista made coffee. We have found that most people prefer the wait for a fresh... More

We purchased a Groupon voucher for Dahlia's Kitchen at the YMCA in St Annes.
