Great food, locally sourced, cooked very well, with a few interesting choices. Never eaten the same thing in there twice as so many tempting dishes. Relishes, mustards and jams to die for make this a fantastic experience. Staff are always happy and helpfull. What more do you want for breakfast.

Came here for lunch with a friend. Really different choices of food - almost too much choice! Had soup which was delicious served with bread, my friend had a quiche. Quaint way of serving things, milk for coffee in little jug etc. Would definitely come here again.

Me and my husband came here today for lunch. I had the best fish finger sandwich ever- lovely fresh bread, four fish fingers, and definitely homemade tartare sauce. Also had wedges with a garlic mayo with the sandwich. My husband had the Malaysian curry and it tasted amazing. He was thrilled with it. Very reasonable price too for a good... More

One of the best places in Chelmsford to enjoy a brunch. Inside the small shop front you'll find a wide, airy rear space with plenty of light, recycled vintage wooden church chairs, lots of menu-laden black boards and generally a bit of an old school-house vibe. The food on display, especially the cake selection, looks delicious. I've had a chorizo... More

They actually have flavour unlike the offerings of some... More

We have noticed that the service has gotten really slow, over the last few months (sometimes waiting 15min or more for our drinks), but we have also noticed that they sometimes charge are extra for the...

I'd never noticed this place before, but found it on this site, and thought I'd give it a try. It certainly didn't disappoint! A great coffee and a full English didn't cost the Earth, and it was all very fresh, and very generous portion sizes - certainly not your local 'greasy spoon'. The staff were friendly, and mentioned that they... More
