Great little lunch stop

We were attracted by the no-under-15s rule in place here. The joys of no pesky children creating noise and mayhem. It was also a very good place to stop for lunch. The light offerings are a sensible size (an omelette with salad and a single fish cake with a small portion of chips) and quite... read more

Always a delight to come to Davids and nothing is too much trouble. After experiencing some less than great service in other Sudbury cafes it is nice to be on the recieving end of friendly and polite customer service with a personal touch. The coffee is amazing and the soup was excellent and full of flavour.

Do not visit Sudbury very often but when I do make a point of going to David's for breakfast and excellent coffee. Very spacious, clean and a large coffee menu. Children are not allowed in so the clientele is usually older relishing the peace and quiet. I would definitely recommend David's for good food and wonderful coffee.

Never been in here before I must admit it was as the reviews suggested will be back again soon. Would recommend if you are in Sudbury.

We chose to come here for a coffee and lunch after reading other people's reviews. We would agree about the coffee - it was delicious. The reason we wouldn't return is our experience of indifferent service. After 15 minutes we had to see if we had been forgotten - we had! Unfortunately, we then waited another 15 minutes for our...

Myself and my partner booked in for one of Davids delightful dining nights, and it did not disappoint! We had the Crevettes and the Chorizo Roasrio to start, followed by the Hereford Fillet Steak and the famous Davids Cheeseboard! The food was incredible as it always is, and the hosts were charming as ever! One of my favourite places in... More

We popped in here before visiting Gainsborough's house, and had a good coffee and a Danish pastry. The service was lovely - friendly and very efficient. We returned for some soup at lunchtime, a bit salty but otherwise delicious.
