Have visited Café 1885 so many times, but never written a review. Having read some that have been written recently, I feel it would be wrong to remain silent for any longer. This is a family friendly eatery with a comprehensive menu covering a range of light snacks, cakes, and/or lunches. Everything from all-day breakfast to afternoon tea and cake... More

This is an excellent cafe where I've been going regularly, once a week for the last couple of months, for a hot meal late in the afternoon between work appointments. The dish-of-the-day is always interesting, well prepared and very reasonably priced, and staff are helpful and welcoming.

Access via the lift was problematic due to the design of the platform lift. We got tea instead of coffee in a cafetiere. One of our party wanted smoked salmon without the scrambled egg. This was accepted by the waiting staff but arrived with bog standard thick sliced white bread which the waiter admitted was from a commercial white loaf... More

We visiting on Tuesday after the August bank holiday really looking forward to treating ourselves to an indulgent Afternoon Tea. Unfortunately it was a bit disappointing, lovely sandwiches would have preferred brown bread but weren't offered. A very sweet synthetic tasting miniature cheesecake, 1 ganache macaroon and a stale fruit scone which needed carving to cut open. No butter was... More

After being in Suffolk for a year now we finally made it to snape maltings, we went to 1885 to have breakfast.

We've been here once before and had the best Eccles cake in the world! This visit we had some snacks and drinks. Prompt service and nice clean tables. We ordered the bread, baba ganoush, olives and balsamic vinegar dish, and falafel. If I was blindfolded I could not have told you what I was eating - the baba ganoush was... More

The food was very good and the service was friendly. We found it to be very expensive with our lunch of soup, salad and coffee costing $60. It was nice for an experience but very pricey
