This is my go-to coffee shop when near Macclesfield. Its right on Chestergate, so easy to get to, always friendly and has a nice atmosphere. I've usually just bought a coffee and cake, but I've had a lunch there once and that was good too. They also do evening meals. But its the cakes I wanted to talk about... they... More

Went around 10am on a Tuesday. Service was fine, had a bacon and egg barm snotty egg but otherwise ok and coffee was lukewarm. Had to go upstairs to go to loo not easy with a cast and walking stick. The stairs to the toilets needed a good hovering and the toilets were grubby with a poor dryer a dodgy... More

This worked really well for us. It was quiet and service was friendly, genuine and attentive. Kids had jacket potato with really good chilli and home made chicken goujons and we shared a good fish finger sandwich to ensure we had room for cakes! Coffee was good too, whilst not cheap it was very reasonable for the clean plates that... More

Visited with friends and not impressed by the service at all. We waited approx 40 mins for food, wrong order served, no apologies/nor explanation for the waiting time & waitress was very curt throughout the visit. My food was nice but friends' food nothing special & far too expensive for simple dishes. (2 other people left without eating as they... More

I have been several times, each time drawn in by the menu and the atmosphere... the food is ok, however the prices are very expensive compared to similar places in town. The final thing that has stopped me going back is the service. It is very slow, even if they are not busy, and is not friendly. They have a... More

Sunday mornings at Amuse are great. There aren't many places open on a Sunday in Macc but Amuse certainly is. The papers, coffee and cake- perfect! The baker here is a great guy, he does a wonderful job and juggles it with helping front of house and other commitments and his cakes are always delicious. Free refills on the filter-... More
