Considerably more expensive tgan the Temeraire for a breakfast but on a par. Apart from the Temeraire are willing to adjust the dish to your requirements. Upon asking if I could have a Gannet and the Veggie breakfast for my girlfriend but she would not like beans and replaced with mushrooms I was told this was not possible. I offered... More

Went for a Sunday breakfast with friends, utterly disappointed with the quality and price of the food. A cooked breakfast shouldn't be hard to get right, but this place go it so so wrong. £12 for a terrible breakfast and mediocre milkshake. I won't go back. The staff were friendly though.

Another great brunch from this friendly cafe in Saffron Walden. We were greeted by a lovely girl named Tanya who took our order before we sat down. We all enjoyed our meals which included scrambled eggs, tomatoes and toast along with shepherds pie from the 'specials' board. Tea and banana milk shakes followed to make a very enjoyable visit once... More

Wow, this has just got to be the best breakfast for miles around. Have been to Mocha twice in the last few weeks and will keep coming back for more. Friendly environment and staff and Great value for money. Whatever food you choose you get great portions and it is piping hot. Bring it on.

My partner and I love coming here whenever we're in Saffron Walden, but our visit today son turned sour! As there's an open kitchen, we can see the staff working, which is nice. However, today, right in front of all the customers, a (bearded) member of staff started asserting unwanted and sarcastic 'authority' onto a poor young staff member, which... More

Years since we have been to the Moca. The food was very good value for money compared to others in the town.

After an overindulgent Friday or Saturday night the best way to get yourself moving the next day is with a good quality full English breakfast. The Mocha does these exceptionally well and it deserves to be packed on a Saturday or Sunday morning which it has been when I've visited. Best done with friends after a party night for a... More

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
