Amazing

Visited Thyme Cafe for Sunday Lunch , could not believe the varied menu on chalk boards on the walls. The food was absolutely delicious, desserts to die for, not cheap but well worth the money, friendly atmosphere, amazing for a small cafe. Will definitely recommend to friends and family.

Ate from the set menu, couscous salad starter was so huge, asked for a doggy bag and ate it for lunch next day. Big portions, delicious food. Just love this place.

After numerous pleasurable experiences at this delightful restaurant, my mother and I were thrilled to have the pleasure to come across Carl, the happiest, funniest and most pleasant waiter who had ever served us. With excellent knowledge of the gorgeous menu, and a charming smile, it was hard to ask for the bill! We will most definitely be visiting thyme... More

In a nice part of Sheffield, this is a splendid restaurant serving an interesting menu of delicious food. Excellent house wines at a good price complement the tasty selection of dishes. Good variety of vegetarian and fish options. We had the sage and onion soup, the beautiful pink roast beef and the perfect crème brûlée. Good, busy atmosphere with very... More

The selection of food served at this place is amazing. We had sardines and tapas and they were really tasty. It is very busy but service is excellent and quick.

In the student area but had a quality feel to it. Very tasty. Nicely presented and good friendly service. Nice atmosphere. Hard seats aren't high on my list of features though.

reserved a table (which is not easy to do) for 2 and met some friends so extended to 4. Risotto with pea, aubergine and goats cheese start which was excellent, mushroom bruschetta and prawns (with shells) - all very good size portions and lots of flavour. Bottle of very nice Italian rose. Chicken Caesar salad is the best, lots of... More

We had heard good things about the cafe and decided to give it a go. Upon entering we were immediately greeted and offered a table and were given a jug with water. All of the food menu is displayed on chalk boards (showing that it is frequently changing). We had delicious warm open sandwiches with the best chips we had... More

After meeting another couple for a formal dinner dance then realizing we were a day early and all dressed up in dinner suits etc, we were at a lose end as to what to do. The other couple said we might be able to get in the Thyme cafe, but as you can't book, it would be a long shot.... More

Simply terrific. Imaginative, tasty, freshly cooked food in great ambience. Attentive friendly staff. Pretty good value too: starters, main course, puds, coffee for two, plus a decent pint each, all for under £60. And it's been like this for some years. You won't be disappointed.
