First taste of Burford and it was amazing . Sausage Roll with tomato chutney was sublime and the Hot Chocolate was best I have ever tasted,

We poped in for coffee on New Years Day whilst holidaying in the area. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the coffee was first rate and my wife had a lovely hot chocolate.

I'm normally a big fan of Maison Blanc so was looking forward to our lunch there but the experience was pretty awful. I ordered the French onion soup which was off the menu, so ordered the leek and potato soup which was also unavailable. I settled on an extremely unappetising fish cake with a side salad drowning in French dressing.... More

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with this valuable feedback regarding your visit. Our key supplier limited our menu offer over the new year period due to cancelled deliveries and considerable shortfalls in their stock. I am very disappointed that this resulted in two of our seasonal favourites being unavailable - our French Onion and Leek &... More

Have always wanted to visit and had the opportunity to do so this week but left feeling very disappointed. First impressions were not good as we sat at a crumb covered table , I expected someone to come and clean it before our order was taken but it was left dirty. We noticed that other tables were cleared but not... More

Dear Lorelei3, I am disappointed to read that there were crumbs on your table – this is an imperfection which should not have happened. Our Burford café is in the process of an update and our team warmly welcomes you back in the near future to witness changes! Tristan Dixon General Manager More

I hadn't been here for a couple of years, so thought I'd give it another try on a recent stay in Burford. The Saucisson baguette (bacon and brie) was as good as i remember it, and I can highly recommend them - most enjoyable. I feet that the service has improved since the last time I was here - the...

I came here for coffee and a pastry with my mum on Saturday and had a lovely time. The service was fast and the staff were polite. We felt very welcomed and the pain au raisins were delicious. The only part of the experience that wasn't so enjoyable was caused by another, miserable customer - one woman in particular was... More

For breakfast expect small portions of poorly prepared food. Sourdough toast arrives as very thin frazzled pieces of bread, more like toast melba. The scrabbled eggs were dry. Service was odd. No butter delivered with the toast. After complaining about the indoor temperature - due in part to the front door being wide open - the manager stated that he... More

Having breakfast at Maison Blanc last Sunday 16th Nov had not originally been planned. My mother and I had intended to have breakfast at the local Garden Centre. However I discovered that this was not possible as g/centre doesn't open early on Sunday and doesn't do breakfast on Sunday!! Checking the Internet I discovered that Maison Blanc opens at 8.30...

Still a great place for brunch or lunch. The Sausisson and Brie baguette was amazing and the Salmon Nicosse was brilliant as well, Washed down with a glass or two of chilled Rose - a perfect mid day break.

A favourite place to slip off to for a cup of coffee and an almond croissant. Newspapers are there for the browsing and the atmosphere is calm and relaxed. Helpful staff and very good quality coffee and baked goods
