I had salmon and scrambled eggs and was blown away by how good it was (I am very fussy do this is big praise). The person who served us (I assume the owner) was charming and his coffee fantastic. All in all a lovely ladies breakfast get together and certainly worth another visit when I am around that area. Superb.... More

If you are fed up of these coffee chains churning out mediocre beverages in a sterile environment, then you must visit David's Deli in Sudbury! Without doubt the best macchiato outside Italy, using my favourite Segafredo beans, made by David or one of his capable team. The homemade cakes are just that - homemade... by some of his loyal customers I... More

Indeed an oasis in Sudbury. Absolutely gorgeous coffee. Charming and helpful (also unflappable as the day we went he was on his own) host. A place to sit and spend time without tripping over a buggy or the table being knocked by marauding kidiwinks. Keep up the good work. If you haven't tried it, please do!

The chap whom I believe was the owner was busy chatting to what I presume to be regulars.Service was very slow , I had a sandwich , the bread was dry to the point it stuck in my throat.When I mentioned this...

On a short visit to Sudbury to see Gainsborough's House and needed refreshment. This place was recommended by the staff at Gainsborough's House and lived up to the billing. Beautiful cake, excellent coffee, friendly service all at a fair price. Would heartily endorse.

We visited after reading the Tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. A very friendly welcome and peaceful atmosphere. We both ordered prawn and avocado sandwiches which were freshly made in delicious bread. Tasted great. Please note that children are not allowed in this restaurant.

What a lovely surprise to find this for a light lunch nearby to Gainsborough's House (which we had just visited). A privately owned deli/café, with a welcome from the owner, offering freshly prepared dishes with excellent baguettes and brochette in comfortable tables and chairs and attractive furnishings all with great real personal service. Good selection of simple foods in a... More

It is not common in the UK but the coffee brand used here is popular in Madrid and how nice to see a real continental style crema on the top of the cup. It is quite strong but we loved it. One for real coffee lovers! Nice pastry too and a warm welcome . So good to see a coffee... More

A unique experience for me in this wonderfully, hospitable environment; no children, no piped music, provide a welcoming atmosphere. The delightful proprietor, David, and his super team, namely Ann and Kari, provide a consistently , warm welcome where nothing is too much trouble. Dishes are innovative and fresh--no pre-prepared meals in this establishment! If David provided rooms, I'd cheerfully move... More

We have been going to David's Deli since it opened. We are always sure of a great welcome, a very friendly atmosphere and fantastic customer service by owner David and his right hand member of staff Ann. The menu is always changing and you can be assured of really fresh and local ingredients being used. There are always sufficient daily... More
