I have always wanted to try this place as its nice to have a healthy alternative! I finally got the chance to try it out and was sorry to say I was disappointed. It was very busy and the staff made no attempt to help to find you a seat or Maybe it was my choice of food. I chose... More

The best place for brunch/lunch in Chelmsford. Great choice for breakfast and lunch, or just coffee and cake. Need more places like this in Chelmsford!

I've lived in Chelmsford for the past 4 years and my only regret is that I hadn't been to this place before. Really nice food, great ambiance and friendly staff. I only wish there were more like it around! :-)

I had breakfast with a good friend who visits Acanteen all the time - I can definitely see why! I loved the decor - menu items written on blackboards and wooden tables... More

For the love of food? Really? This place is just ok. It was once good but now very over priced for what it is and not consistent at all. Real shame. Iv been in here 5 times over the last 2 months the breakfast has tasted different on 3 occasions, over priced for what you get. Lunch is the same... More

Have had breakfast on several Sunday mornings there and it is definitively a nice way to start the day. Food is nicely and healthily cooked; some nice, green, full of goodness drinks have to be tried. A bit pricy but then it is worth it!

I go regularly because it's right next to the gym I go to so I have a pre meal there. The food is decent, service is good and atmosphere is pleasant. The one thing I will say though is the prices are way too high for what it is. And another annoying thing is one day the price for my... More

I've eaten in Acanteen a few times over the last couple of months and the food has always been amazing. Really good home cooked feel to all the dishes, and you can taste the ingredients are top quality. The only issue I have had is find sufficient seats, which speaks volumes...
