Favourite lunch spot

I have had lunch here on numerous occasions with friends and eaten in the evenings with my husband. The food is consistently excellent and the service is great. They don't have a booking system but they can usually squeeze you in

This is one of our favourite places to eat in Sheffield. Great food, great bistro atmosphere, good prices and all washed down with a good pint of beer ( or wine from their reasonably priced list ). I'd recommend the pie, whatever flavour it is that day ! Go, you'll enjoy it !

Great little cafe - excellent food and atmosphere, whether just cake and coffee or a Sunday Lunch. Extensive blackboard menu clean and very handy to take the Uni girl for a treat.

we took our 16 year old daughter here yesterday for her birthday. The bread and dips are delicious. The food prawns and spaghetti consistently wonderful as were the burgers. Every time we go here the food and ambiance is perfect. A must for everyone can't recommend it enough. Shame there is nothing like this on the north of the city,... More

We arrived as a group of four girls and had three courses for £16. It was lovely and we had a drink included. No rush for the table. Excellent service. Really high quality food. I had the fish and chips and definitely some of the best ever. Impressed. Great atmosphere and a mixed clientele. We will return.

Went to Thyme Cafe with friends yesterday evening. We were made very welcome, and provided with a carafe of water on being seated. We all ordered from the set menu, astonishing value at £16 for 3 courses with a glass of wine. We thought we'd get moderate portions, but not at all. The food was delicious, well presented and served... More

There is but one saving grace to this restaurant, and that's the front man. He's one of the best I've ever come across, thanks to diplomatic skills which would make him the envy of the Foreign Office's best. The restaurant doesn't take reservations, so it's not unusual to find people queuing at the door, such is its popularity. And yet... More

I eat out a lot and having lived in Sheffield for many years this is one of the nicest restaurants we have here. Food is excellent and choice varied, Only downside is ou cannot book so just have to turn up - not a mega problem as you can call in one of the pubs next door whilst a table... More

Thyme Cafe has a nice atmosphere and is clearly a popular eatery but we found it on the expensive side for what it is. Our little party had an eclectic selection of mains but all were around the £12/13/14 mark. For a Chicken Caesar Salad to be the same price as fish and chips, a simple pasta dish and some... More
