Fabulous breakfast and coffee - they even opened a bit early so we could get out of the rain! Brilliant range of items available and the staff are lovely. Well worth a visit!

Visited this cafe today with my 12 month old and his buggy - usually a stressful situation in most cafes but they really made it easy today. The waitress / manager ? Opened the door for me and helped me find a table where the buggy would fit. She moved the cutlery out of little arms reach and chatted to... More

Not having been to Sadler Gate for a long time we decided to try Kitchen as a new venue and we're glad we did. We arrived late Sunday morning and the place was nearly full. We just wanted something straight forward so opted for the double sausage sandwich and toast and jam. Both were excellent. Being served by a beautiful... More

We popped in for breakfast with our six month old daughter on NYE. She became a little restless in the pushchair just as the food arrived. A beautiful young lady who worked there helped us out by looking after our daughter for ten minutes whilst we enjoyed our food (which was excellent BTW). We will certainly be going back .

This is my latest visit to The Kitchen. We dined at lunchtime. The establishment is always very busy, be patient, it's worth waiting for a table. The Owner and staff are very friendly. The food served is not 'fast food'. Everything cooked fresh to order and delicious.

If you are hungry or in a hurry don't go to this café, we waited 50 minutes for our food, we ordered the pita with chicken tikka and when it arrived the pita was so hard it was like rock, we also asked if the mint mayo was served on the side and was told that it was, but when... More

Dear Caroline, thank you for taking the time to comment on The Kitchen, which is not all negative thankfully and it is certainly valued.

Myself and my wife visited with our son and granddaughter for breakfast, unfortunately we had 3 waitresses serve us so you can imagine the order got a tad mixed up. Our breakfasts came out minus mine which apparently hadn't been made, not to worry she found it at the other end of the kitchen, my egg was fried instead of... More

The kitchen is a small cafe and very popular. It's probably not the best place for prams and buggies but they will try and fit you in. The latte is hot and delicious and there are plenty of soft drink choices for my other half who doesn't drink tea or coffee. The kitchen butchers breakfast is excellent! Locally sourced meats...

Dear JBParks, thank you for taking the time to comment on The Kitchen. You see, we recently had a customer saying that the garlic sausage for breakfast was an unusual choice, yet you disagree. We think it is lovely too, but the only way we might be able to keep everyone happy is to alternate them. Its good to see... More
