Delicious Lunch

Just what we were looking for - cheerful & accommodating waitress who allowed us to split a large bowl of soup & delicious raclette toastie between two! Good value for money. Would definitely return. Attentive staff & food was faultlessly good.

In a city where the graffiti on the walls bemoans the fact that there are too many coffee shops, this is one not be missed. The coffee, the crockery and the service are all great. I particularly enjoyed the daily special. I must return as I have not even explored the wonderful cakes or cheeses yet.

It's a great little cafe, the staff are so welcoming, friendly and helpful. The food was really nice, but there was a minor dirty cup situation. It was quickly resolved. They've got beautiful butter dishes and cheese pots if you want to buy any souvenirs.

I phoned the FCC to place an order for some wonderful British Cheese for our festive celebration in Dubai. The lady on the phone was really helpful. I explained I needed the cheese delivered to a UK address, on a specific date, so our daughter could bring it with her to Dubai. The cheese arrived on time and in beautiful... More

Popped in for a quick lunch whilst in town, and when the food (a salad) eventually came it was delicious - good selection, and loads of tempting desserts. The service was surly, slow and unhelpful though. I listed to two people around me ask the waiter for the wifi password which he fobbed off with "it doesn't work properly". He... More

Our Devizes bus stops opposite this cafe, we've often then crossed over, looked through the window admired and then moved on. This time decided to try. Loved the decorative cafe, and we were not the only ones. Americano coffee was excellent, and it arrived in beautiful mugs. Items for sale litter the walls and provide added interest. We both had...
