Lovely food and friendly service

This is a lovely cafe, the food is great, home cooked and fresh. The staff are excellent, friendly and always happy to help and go 'off piste' from the menu. It is a lovely place to go for lunch with friends and such good value.

Excellent visit from start to finish. Friendly staff, good choice on menu, quick service and delicious food. Cakes looked delicious but didn't get to try as was so stuffed! Would highly recommend the king prawn sandwich and curly fries on the side. Will definitely return.

Whilst in Wimborne we were in need of lunch so called into Cloisters around 12 noon and it was just starting to get busy. We bagged a table by the window and ordered toast and jam plus a coronation chicken sandwich and two coffees. The staff were friendly and at least two came over to make sure we were being... More

Needed a breakfast after an early morning fasting hospital appointment. Having used The Cloisters before we knew a good breakfast was to be had. Brilliant breakfast accompanied by coffee/tea and toast. Although this place has a good selection it somehow lacks atmosphere. Friendly staff and good piping hot food freshly prepared. Toilets on site but up a staircase. Reasonable prices.... More

We were in the area and having checked out reviews on Tripadvisor chose the one holding the number 1 position. It was easy to find and a busy lunchtime. Well we weren't disappointed. The staff were very friendly and attentive and invited us to take one of the free tables and we were given menus to peruse. A good choice... More

Have been here a number of times, sometimes for just a coffee and others for a meal - mostly breakfast. Always made to feel welcome and the staff certainly look after you. My wife is veggie/gluten free which is not always easy to cope with but the staff here go out of their way to ensure she always has a... More
