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

I have been coming here for coffee and a bite to eat for about a year now. What is unique about this cafe is the fact that children are banned, so you can have a lovely cup of coffee and adult conversation in peace without some badly behaved brat screaming in your earhole! Plenty of reading material to choose from... More

Had a lovely lunch. High quality products, excellent coffee and cake. Very hospitable staff. Only tiny thing - for a while there was a young man speaking very loudly on his mobile phone which was very intrusive so it would be good to have phonecalls banned!

Went on a Saturday at 10.30 for late breakfast. It was full and the owner said he was unfortunately on his own due to illness, but someone came in shortly after we arrived to help. He was very apologetic to all customers making them aware of the situation. We were not in a hurry and were keen to try the... More

I have popped into David's Deli on many occasions for a light lunch or coffee, High quality produce, good coffee grown up environment, Newspapers and magazines available and always good friendly service just about the best little café in the area and some very nice cheeses available too. Highly recommended.
