No heating... ALL Winter, and still broken!

Went in the Coffee House after a long absence. The absence was due to the fact the over the Winter, I've walked in and straight back out again many times as the place was too cold, due to the heating being "broken". Or perhaps it's just turned off to save costs? Now the Spring is here, I thought... read more

This used to be a great little cafe, serving good food with attentive and friendly staff. I have to say, haven't been for years but what a shame it's lost all of it's charm. I spent the whole time with my coat on as the place was cold (we'd been seated up the back) food was distinctly average and overpriced,... More

Grubby, slow, uninspiring, and not cheap either. Went there as one of our party had visited before and enjoyed it. It has gone badly downhill!

In my opinion this is the most welcoming cafe in Thame, especially if you have have young children. The food is basic cafe style but always tasty and good portions.

I was foolish enough to have the unfortunate experience of eating here twice. We were passing and very hungry and convenience conned me into going in here. Do not waste your money or time. Food = appalling and served with mould on it (really this did happen) Staff = complacent and dirty. Atmosphere= cold, literally freezing cold, and don't visit... More

Bit surprised to see the negative reviews on here, but we came here just after Xmas 2014 and just wanted a coffee and a bit of cake. My daughter's milkshake did not arrive but in the end she did not want it in any case (it was a bloomin' cold day after all) and the waitress was very apologetic. It... More

Popped in for coffee with family, service was very slow, tables not cleared after we had been sitting at the table for a while. Coffee was good, but generally the decor and atmosphere did not make this a good experience. It is a real shame because it is a lovely old building and could be so nice. Seems to be... More
