Good strong coffee

Like other reviewers, we had always wanted to try this place but it had always been too busy on previous occasions. We were lucky today and got a lovely table near the window. We liked the light, airy feel of the space and the fact that they don't pack the tables in too close to one another. We... read more

This was my first successful visit to The Spark, I have been meaning to go here for some time but it is usually packed, however last Saturday I was lucky. It is one of the many coffee shops in Lichfield, the difference is this one has really fresh coffee and fresh cakes; this may be due to the fast turnover... More

We regularly visit for lunch or just coffee. Delta and her team are simply delightful, she has a knack for recruiting like minded staff who go about making you feel welcome without being over familiar and gushing. Food is always excellent. Not the cheapest but if you want cheap there are plenty of other places. Not for us though -... More

Great Cafe in the heart of the city, with great style and atmosphere, the menu is innovate and has changed a few times since I started going, this keeps it fresh and vibrant. There are lot of evening events on with live bands too. So sign up as it gets booked very quickly.

We held our wedding reception here last year. Della and her team made it a breeze to arrange. We hired the whole place and had live music. The buffet was fabulous, not your usual curled up sandwiches and sausages rolls! It consisted of dips, cold meats and cheeses...really delicious. They accomodated some of our additional drink requirements too. All in... More

Food is always fresh and sourced by great local butchers and farm shop! Homemade soup is really good but their sandwiches are delicious!! The staff are really friendly & helpful.... More

I wanted to try the Spark because it looked interesting and it was not part of a chain. My overall impression - disappointed. We visited on a Saturday lunchtime and I can hear the owner saying now - we are always busy on a Saturday and the food is individualy prepared. Not this time, the place was quiet and all... More

I chose The Spark to eat as I noticed on their window menu that they had hummus and,being vegan,decided to eat there with my mum. When we attempted to order food at the bar we were told they had no hummus. Bearing in mind that they had only just opened at around 12 noon. We asked if there was anything... More

Run by lovely people but there's something missing. Coffee not quite to my taste, food just a little over-priced. Lots going on (live music etc) and a great place to meet friends and socialise.
