Great breakfasts

Mocha breakfasts are a great treat - always massive portions too so you get the most for your money. Saturday morning cafe I feel!

We were just visiting Saffron Walden so did not know where to choose. Decided on Mocha Diner as it looked pretty busy and this is always a good sign. We each had burger with chips served with the usual salad. Food nice and hot (not the salad obviously!) chips good but found the burgers to be tough, which is a... More

We visit this cafe regularly and are always happy when we leave. The staff are always friendly and helpful, the food is cooked to order and the breakfasts are legendary. A great selection of drinks available including thick shakes made with dairy ice cream :)

I popped in here for the first time with my boy for snack. The food looked okay and fancied a fry up but went for a lighter option. I ordered a cheese toasty which was average along with some stale salad along with a coke and milkshake for £14.00 a bit of a joke. On leaving I banged my head... More

Dear Sir. It is unfortunate you didn't enjoy your experience with us on Sunday.I have spoken to the day manager regarding the incident and unfortunately you took offence to a light hearted comment and became rude yourself. I must also take the opportunity to remind you of the food that was actually ordered as you have forgotten. Two sandwiches were... More

Mocha is the best place to visit the morning after the night before! Their fry ups will fix any hangover! They also do yummy milk shakes for the kids

Staff were friendly but food not good. Everything comes with a side salad which is not a bad thing....... but who puts pasta on a side salad. Weird. Food was ok but waited a long time and was expensive for what we had.

Family owned and run for 45 years (it says so on a blackboard), this is a firm favourite for breakfast; and all is prepared in front of you, with good coffee or a home made milk shake to drink. The menu boasts burgers, fish and daily specials for later in the day too. Free wifi keeps you online too!
