A friend that I hadn't seen for ages recommended that we met in this little cafe. It is wonderful, small, but the staff make you feel really welcome and the home made cakes are superb. We didn't stay for lunch but I could see some of the food being delivered and it looked and smelt tremendous. I will be going... More

My husband and his sister discovered this cafe by chance and we have been back several times since. We are particuaulry excited about the quality of the food and that for £5.50 you can have a very well made, strong coffee, freshly prepared sandwich with a wide choice of contents and a generous portion of homemade cake, again with a...

once you get to know them they are just lovely. They dont have to be perfect - their imperfectness makes them appealing. A nice change to the standard food chain ! One thing is always good and that is the cake and the coffee!

Charmingly compact, owners kind and obliging. Had full sandwich on absolutely some of the best bread in UK...drink, and pudding. Five pounds. Egad. Sandwich was delicious too! Akin to having lunch at a friends. Pret....if this went viral...? Remember...very small sit down space. Leave buggy outside.

La Bottega has only been here a couple of years but it seems like forever! It has become a home from home for many Teddington Locals including myself. It's often bustling and full to to the brim with regulars who appreciate good coffee and are working their way through the selection of amazing home-cooked cakes and treats (Roberto is a... More

Have to agree with disgruntled review on service. Like the owners, it's very temperamental. My main concern is the standard of hygiene - or lack of it. Handling money, then food, without washing hands or wearing gloves...too retro for my tastes, and I was brought up in Italy! When the mood's right, the food and coffee can hit the spot... More

Service v disappointing. Practically ignored for 10 minutes, not really interested in taking an order. Not interested in clearing away previous occupants' dishes. Had to ask for serviettes. Forgot one of our cakes. Pathetic single serve tea pots not for sharing! Cutlery arrived hot and wet - well at least it was clean. Cakes delicious but not worth the hassle.... More

Delightful cafe; great coffee and delicious home made cakes. Really friendly welcoming service. Best coffee shop in Teddington - and there are plenty to choose from! But so few bake their own cakes, or are proprietor run. Good fun!

I stopped in only briefly to pick up some lunch to take away but was still impressed with the atmosphere and friendliness of the staff. It was also obvious from the staff interactions with regulars that this level of service was the norm. The toasted panini, cake and coffee I had were all great and for £4.50 (takeaway, £5.50 to...
