First visit and it won't be our last

The cafe was very busy though this didn't affect the service we received. The menu was extensive and varied , enough to suit all tastes. The coffee was spot on and I had cafe con leche , to be recommended. There is a standard menu plus a large selection of specials. Baileys2 will take some... read more

No attention from 3 waitresses after standing in doorway for 10 minutes with my 4 year old daughter hoping to have lunch. Will not be returning,too much other lovely eating establishments. Need to up their game if they want to succeed.

Slightly off the main shopping streets this established cafe continues to serve up reliable, honest food at reasonable prices for this tourist town. Good selection of home cooked meals including breakfasts, most things on toast and daily specials. Good selection of cakes and biscuits and the option of a large mug of tea or coffee is always a welcome touch,

I live in Bury St Edmunds and Baileys is one of the restaurants I visit quite frequently. The girls are great, always friendly and smiling and create a very pleasant atmosphere. The sandwiches and cakes are wonderful, (try the chicken, banana and mango sandwich). Mmmmmmm.........

Such a pleasant afternoon tea experience! It is just slightly off the beaten track and we found it on the afternoon of the Christmas Market when the centre of Bury was heaving. Will definitely return. The small front of shop is deceptive as there is seating for another 40+ in the back. Service was speedy and with a smile.

Tucked away in a side street this is everything a great café should be. I always go there when in Bury ST Edmunds & every time the food is great and the service fantastic. The lady who owns it runs a very tight ship, coordinating efficient yet not intrusive or rushed service from the enthusiastic team who work hard to... More

The place can get very busy, but it is well worth the wait. Everything about this place is attractive, even the utilitarian furniture. The decor is very pleasing, the food is wonderful and all topped off by very friendly and attractive staff. A must visit when in Bury St Edmunds.

I went into Baileys 2 for a quick brunch with my daughter and 17 month old granddaughter and was very pleased with the welcome we received. So many tearooms object to pushchairs but we were shown where to park ours and were then shown to a table where the waitress brought a booster seat type highchair for Eliza. A lovely... More
