In the heart of the Cathedral Quarter and fashionable Sadler Gate with it's beautiful artisan shops, The Kitchen offers a warm pleasant ambience for a break at any time of day. Friendly staff and well presented food and drinks......the tea was particularly quirky but I won't spoil the surprise! IfI had one criticism, I could their balsamic a bit too... More

I dislike the fact that the staff are not friendly and you are paying a hefty amount to eat here.This is probably the most expensive coffee on the street too. so all in all it's put me off.

Very nice cafe with good food and beverages. The staff could be a little more friendly (I suspect it is the boss or one of the key managers who is a little bulldog like) but not to the point of off putting. The reason I would not choose to frequent this cafe regularly is that it always feels cramped in... More

It a really clean, friendly, well run sandwich and light lunch restaurant at the museum end of Sadler Gate. We called in this morning on chance... More

Simply, the service was quick and friendly, the food was what you expect out of a full English and plentiful too. Good selections of coffee's and vegetarian foods and well priced. The place was also nicely decorated with simple vintage designs. We will be back soon :)

Visited here for lunch twice in 4 days and wasn't disappointed. The food and service as good as previous visits and lovely soup on offer each day with really really fresh bread.

Called in for breakfast and had the sausage/bacon sandwich, wow, a proper door stop sandwich, tasty incredients on chunky bread with tomato relish. Service was quick and efficient and I liked the little touch of having your own "mini" milk bottle with your drink. Very good breakfast menu choice, very well decorated and an enjoyable place to stop off at.

This is a great place for lunch and in a lovely area of Derby - lots of independent shops and stalls around. Impressed with service - tables were cleared quickly and care was very busy. Good choice of drinks. Food was not quick to arrive yet not slow either - they cook/prepare from scratch clearly which is a rarity in... More
