Would highly recommend this cafe/restaurant. Beautiful decor, great service and high quality food. Visited on a day trip to Bury, stopped in here for lunch. I asked our waitress what was gluten free on the menu and she popped to the kitchen to find out. A couple minutes later the chef emerged to speak to me :) he talked me... More

Never had a bad coffee here - they get it right every time, and the food is spot on too. We'll only go when there's space upstairs as the 'cellar' is very dark and uninviting - needs brightening up and clever use of mirrors and lighting to make it less claustrophobic. Otherwise, no complaints!!

Stopped in for a post-lunch coffee and treat. Had a wonderful flat white and some baklava! Great atmosphere and friendly staff!

Came here with my daughter and granddaughter a couple of times, each time sat outside on the street. I like the menu here particularly the unusual and different salads. Wines are good too!

Have been quite a few times, just wish it was a bit bigger. Had lunch, gone for coffee and had evenings out with friends. The memes and sharing is so good Love the food, value and atmosphere. The people who run it put a lot of hard work in and it shows

Really pleasant atmosphere, good coffee, snacks, cakes, and a great view out onto abbeygate street ideal for people watching. However no wifi stops me giving it 5 stars, this is a given for me when visiting any coffee place.

My Husband and I frequent Saints quite often at lunch times. Normally we share a Meat Meze washed down with a house red. We decided on our last visit to try the Fish Meze. What an excellent choice. Have to recommend the Soups also. Coffee is one of the best in Bury St Edmunds. Service is swift either served by... More

Food is good (I had the grilled halloumi salad), the coffee is excellent, there is bottled beer or wine on offer and the staff are very welcoming. My gripe is with the cost of a visit for fayre you can get elsewhere in town at a fraction of the... More
