Have had lunch here many times. Good for a light salad or soup whilst catching up with friends. In the summer you can sit outside and enjoy the sun. Winter it is a bit tight in the inside of Caffe Gusto but still enjoyable.

On our first visit here a few weeks ago,I ordered a tuna mayonnaise sandwich and coffee and my companion ordered a pasta dish. I thought then that the coffee was tasteless and the sandwich filling was poor,although the pasta was passable. We returned this week and nothing had changed.My sandwich was dry with as little filling as it was possible... More

Café Gusto is a real gem in the long list of Harpenden eating places. The food is good and delivers good value, the staff are helpful and friendly and it is clear that many of the customers are regulars.

The staff seemed to have a miserable look on their face and talked about customers behind their back. I was horribly treated and will not be retuning.

My Thompsons Close secret. The lovely staff always serve with a smile and the lunch choices are small but good with lovely homemade soups, salads, pasta, panninis and cakes!!!! Great coffee. A regular visitor love it.

Food here is ok but I wouldn't go back as given the state of the toilets which didn't look like they had had a proper clean in months, I would be too worried about the hygiene of the rest of the place to go back.

Nice place to share a baguette with my wife when we make time to pause for lunch. Friendly independent coffee shop, which also does hot lunches and everything is delivered with a friendly smile. Seats out side in the summer and cosy inside in the winter. Tucked away up Thompsons Close it is handy for the car park and not... More

I took my mother to this lovely cafe today. We had morning coffee e.g. Excellent hot chocolate and a latte. The atmosphere there was very friendly. We decided to return later for lunch. We both had very well filled sandwiches and a cold drink. We contemplated the lovely selection of homemade cakes but decided we were too full up after... More
