We decided to go for breakfast at Cafe 1885, Snape Maltings, Suffolk followed by a walk around the varied shops. Cafe 1885 has a nice atmosphere, the staff are efficient and friendly and the veggie breakfast was the best I've eaten; it was very tasty, well presented and we didn't have to wait long. We have decided to make this... More

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.
