Lovely little cafe with quirky interior. The service is average but the coffee is good and the food is great! Lovely fresh burgers and gorgeous meringue for dessert. Definitely one of my favourite places for lunch in Derby.

A justifiably lauded café this. After a bizarre experience down the road at the Pyclet place the Kitchen Café came to our rescue with a couple of delicious sandwiches and 2 quite exquisite lattes served up with expedience. Not too expensive either for the quality of fare and a nice chilled atmosphere to boot. Staff and surroundings faultless. Really good... More

Went to The Kitchen for the first time today and liked it. Although it was lunch and therefore quite busy we were served almost straight away and the drinks brought to us within a couple of minutes. Waited a short time for the Panini's` but it was busy. Food and drinks were very good so will go back again.

Ordered two Americano,s and a scone, bit disappointed, the scone had been warmed up, not very keen on warm scones, they should have asked if we wanted our scones warmed up first. My cup of coffee came just over half full, I don't have milk in mine if I did it would struggle to be three quarters full. I asked... More

I came to the kitchen the other day around 4pm to meet a friend for a coffee. We were sat outside and approached by an elderly member of staff who was unbelievably rude however we took no notice, both ordered a few drinks each and proceeded to chat. When I went inside to use the bathroom I heard this lady... More

Visiting Derby with friends we came across this restaurant/café by chance when looking for somewhere for lunch on a Saturday. It was busy, but they quickly cleared a table from people who were leaving. Our orders were taken promptly and they could cope with one of our party who wanted a Panini, yet is allergic to cheese. The advantage of... More

I have been there many times for many reasons; dates with my wife, leaving party from work, coffee with friends, breakfast, lunch, cakes, everything has always been amazing.

Or at least the best I've discovered. Excellent bacon and scrambled eggs. A couple of gripes though! Service is generally great, but on our most recent visit, we had our drinks order taken...but then four tables arrived after us had their food orders taken before us...the waitress just wasn't as attentive as it seemed to think she was! Coffee is... More

It was our first visit here but we never actually got to sample the food. We weren't acknowledged for quite some time and a couple who came in after us had their order taken before us. By the time the waitress finally got round to taking our order it had gone past 11.30am for breakfast and was told they had... More
