Enjoyed a quick lunch here that was very enjoyable. We had a made-to-order sandwich, and pie with mash .. both delicious. There is a choice of eat-in or takeaway. As it was lunchtime we only just got a table. Service was friendly and efficient.

First time visit the cafe in a Saturday afternoon, it's not busy and plenty of seats. The cafe is clean and staff are friendly. About the food, I'd say this cafe provide reasonable choice of sandwiches and it tastes good, but I don't think it is something very special.

I've had probably 40 odd sandwiches here and almost if not all been good or very good. Sandwiches made in front of you and whilst not a wrap guy the meatball one I had and the lamb were good.

The quality of food at Cooks & Garcia really stands out,as does the speedy service from it's polite and well presented staff. A vast variety of premium fresh ingredients and delightful artisan breads is available daily. The pricing structure doesn't punish you for indulging in extras and adds ons- a breath of fresh air in a generally insultingly greedy industry!... More

Great service, lovely food and unbelievable prices. The red velvet cake is the best I've ever had. Lovely staff who are very helpful when helping to decide what to eat. The location is convenient and you can take away as well so this is a perfect place to stop by and pick up your morning coffee!

Helpful staff, nice food. They are aware of allegies and food intolerances and offer gluten free bread and soy milk. The breakfast wraps and their egg florentine muffins are fabulous!

Had the Reuben sandwich, but was not impressed. Very dry and not at all as I'd imagined. I put it down to the person who made my sandwich, so am prepared to try it again. Coffee was very nice, although had to remind the waitress that I'd ordered it.

We are so sorry that your sandwich was not up to our usual standard. Next time you are in Richmond, please come back and allow us to make another Reubens for you, on the house. Ask for Richard or Janet. More

Myself and my work colleagues go to C&G every day Monday-Friday. Their service and quality of produce is top class. Their staff take the time to remember my regular order and portion size is extremely generous! Love it!
