Very disappointing

I met up with some friends after Christmas. They usually go but I had never been. I was unimpressed. I had a coffee and quite frankly if I had collected some mud from the garden and added warm water it would have been better. The surroundings look cheep and it was not very comfortable.

met up with friends here for coffee and cake and really impressed. It is upstairs and so difficult for anyone who can't climb steps but so impressed with the cleanliness and décor. It is deceptively spacious with 4 different rooms including the 'oak room' which is completely oak panelled (building is 300 years old) and offers comfy sofas for 6-8... More

If you want a cup of coffee and a slice of fantastic cake in a relaxing atmosphere this is the place to go. There are also super sandwiches and light lunches all in a ever changing art gallery. It is upstairs so not suitable for everyone but the friendly staff will make it worth the effort. Don't forget the art... More

Both a good place for a light lunch or tea/coffee and a slice of homemade cake. Relaxed, arty surrounding. Cake was scrumptious.

The Art Cafe represents an oasis in the predictably down-market (food wise) town of Hinckley. Not many shops or places that seek to provide high quality last that long here - so it is a pleasure to be able to return to this culinary haven with an assurance of a relaxed and intelligent ambiance. In that sense, the Cafe provides... More

With many cafe's to eat and drink in Hinckley, I always walk a little further to this hidden treasure! The fresh ingredients and local produced treats always hit the spot! I love the banter with the friendly staff too! Just polished off a fresh bowl of butternut squash and sweet potato soup! It was delicious!

We visited for lunch mid week. The menu was limited and we did not enjoy it as much as we had on previous visits.

I have visited this cafe on many occasions without disappointment. The quality of the food is excellent especially the cakes. The staff are very friendly and always willing to help and the service is at your table you do not have to queue at the till. Many seperate rooms for you to eat and ideal for parties.

Just to say this cafe never fails to deliver on a really decent cup of coffee and a pleasant selection if well priced snacks . Also added to this is the gallery and art shop experience where the staff are knowledgable and helpful. There is also some terrific handmade jewellery on sale as well!

Dear Deco86, Thank you for your recent review, although i was surprised given ALL previous positive reviews. I am sorry that your experience did not live up to your expectations. In response to your comments, our potatoes are oven baked fresh daily, using quality produce from a local greengrocer. Our coffee is Italian lavazza super crema, considered by many as... More
