Sometimes the perfect comfort food is scrambled eggs on toast and these did not disappoint. Perfect and creamy with fried mushrooms on the side. Delicious. I love that I got a pot of hot water with the tea as well. My friends little boy (age 3) was made welcome and his glass of milk with a straw wasn't a problem.... More

After a busy last minute Christmas shop in Wimborne our favourite cafe in Wimborne- The Riverside Cafe was closed, so we thought we'd give the Cloisters a try for lunch. Service was excellent and the food generally good (I get fed up with frozen chips though) The food was well presented and tasty. The outlook and general atmosphere of the... More

What a lovely little place, in the middle of Wimborne, we arrived shortly before they were due to close, but they didn't rush us out of the door. Good Coffee, good shortbread and good hot chocolate too. x

Although I never go in for anything more than a latte and a slice of carrot cake or to share a large tea cake with my mum, it is always brilliant. The coffee is smooth and the teacake plenty for two - nicely smothered in butter. The carrot cake for £2.20 is a generous slice and is one of the... More

Popped in here today for a cooked breakfast with an old friend and, as usual, Cloisters came up trumps! Good service and lovely food.

Lovely cafe for a quick lunch, lovely soup (touch salty, but we eat low sodium) We will certainly go back as we are often in Wimborne and it is good to find a place to eat that is pleasant and good food.

My wife and I go here every day for lunch, the food is excellent, the staff are very good. The food is always fresh, vegetables are not the dried type you get in many pubs! good to see such a range of home made cakes. The tea cakes are great(large) you may have to share one with someone.

We have been customers of Cloisters for quite a number of years and wondered when it changed owners a couple of years whether the standards would slip, we need not have worried in fact we think it has gone from strength to strength. Nice homely yet modern atmosphere. Great staff who are welcoming, attentive and accurate in order taking. The... More
