I have been going to this cafe since it opened 3 or 4 years ago and am never disappointed. The good food is homemade, from scones (massive and big enough for two!) to gorgeous soup with homemade speciality breads. Possibly better to go just before or after lunch as it gets busy but it is on two floors and never... More

I have visited cafe smart on a number of occasions and would definitely recommend it!! I can't eat gluten and the kitchen are obviously very knowledgeable about gluten intolerance, even including gluten free crisps alongside sandwiches, a small detail to some but something which really made my day! Great atmosphere, friendly staff!!

I visit here quite often. It's a really nice place to eat. Lovely selection on the lunch menu and delicious cakes/traybakes available.

We ate here in the evening and we were very disappointed. The two course meal option was chosen by all four of us but we were all aware that the food was unimaginative and boring both in taste and appearance. My fish gougons were just from a packet of the preformed frozen variety while the chips were at best lukewarm.... More

Thank you for your review. I am terribly sorry that you were "very disappointed" by the menu and food. We work very hard in sourcing only the best local ingredients for our monthly changing menu and have had plenty of compliments on allof our food and its "appearance" including the goujons. I am glad you liked the Cafe itself and... More

I have been to Cafe Smart a few times in the last few years and returned this weekend for some lunch. The place was packed (always a good sign!) which creates a really nice buzz. Service was friendly and I have to highly recommend the chicken coujon wrap! Delicious. It is nice to see Cafe Smart still doing so well.... More

Have been here several times day and night. Last visit 17th Oct and had a lovely evening until we asked for coffee just before 10pm to be told coffee machine was switched off! Then a female staff member came out with a vacuum cleaner and started to vacuum around us. Not impressed at all and i thought i would email... More

Very good for coffee & scone. We tried it on a BYO evening and although the staff & service were excellent I thought the menu was a bit random & food was just okay. (I also thought there was going to be live music - maybe my mistake.) Food was average but they offered free desserts which personally I think... More

As a regular visitor to this cafe I find it consistently good, whether for coffee or lunch. Members of staff are obviously trained to provide quality service and are polite and anxious to please. Food is well presented, not too expensive and tasty. The home baked cakes are exceptionally good and they serve an excellent cup of coffee. Minor refurbishments... More
