We have been to this busy little Cafe many times. They are really on the ball with service, fast to greet and seat you. The Menu has lots of choice and there are daily Specials. I am a sucker for the homemade soups, like the small sample in a coffee cup and that tends to be me decided. We have... More

I popped in one cold miserable January lunch time with my sister. The café was busy with no free tables but the friendly staff arranged for us to share a table until another table became free. While waiting they gave us small cups of their home made pea and mint soup. it was wonderful. The service, food and general ambience... More

Quite simply the best breakfast. Very busy cafe but looked after very well by the attentive staff. Bacon nice and crisp which some places can't seem to do. Love it!

The cafe is very conveniently placed very close to the centre of Lichfield. We enjoyed our recent lunch very much. The food was good and fresh and the service was excellent.

My son took my wife and I to this cafe with his wife and our three young grandchildren for a Sunday snack as we had already had a good breakfast at the hotel we were staying at. The cafe was small in side but held quite a number of people. The service was very good all round from ordering your... More

Yet again ( but not surprised) to find that this cafe was busy. It is easy to see why, efficient and friendly service, freshly cooked food, and good value. It may appear that I just say the same thing on trip advisor about this place, but it really is that good! Never disappoints, always a pleasure to eat here.

We arrived at the height of lunch but a waitress met us as we approached the door and took a phone number to let us know when a table was ready in about 15 mins. We wandered off to the shops and got a call a few minutes later. We were then met with a sample of soup to try.... More
