Tried the cake

In my previous review I commented that the only thing I could have asked for was a nice glass of wine. As it was sunny yesterday we again went for the tapas platter (still good) and I noticed when I went in to pay that they seem to have small bottles of wine. Ah well maybe next time. We also... read more

I just want to say that I regularly stop by for a quick bite and a coffee mid cycle. The food here is always of high quality albeit at a mid-high price. Normally I drop in order/pay and receive my food and I'm away. Today though I was asked to take a seat and someone would take my order, this... More

Hi I regularly monitor this forum and am disappointed to see your review. I have enquired into it and due to being extremely busy it appears as if you were served out of turn and this pushed you to the back of the stack of orders being prepared in our kitchen. I apologise and if you want to ring me... More

Cakes are pleasant but overpriced. I have paid similar prices in really top quality patisseries. Like most eating establishments in Bawtry this coffee shop gets its money too easily - as do the landlords who charge exorbitant rents (hence high overheads passed on to customers). Food and service are perfectly acceptable but don't be misled by glowing reviews and don't... More

Sorry it did not live up to the hype but please don't punish us for what other people's opinions are. The cake is exceedingly good and worth every penny and that why I am happy to charge that price for it. £3.45 for a generouse slice of real homemade cake from a regionally renowned baker is worth paying when you...

A lovely welcome from Staff on our arrival. 1 step to enter,all then on one level.Toilet very tiny not very accessible but it is a lovely old building. Lot of fat on bacon was the only disappointment .Pay parking in... More

We only called in for a coffee but from the reviews, I think we missed out by not sampling the food or the cakes. The seated area outside in the courtyard is perfect for the sunshine. The coffee was perfect, both the size and price at a reasonable £2.35 for a large cup. The waiter was lovely and couldn't have... More

Stopped in Bawtry travelling back from Gainsborough to Sheffield. Just needed a coffee but spotted this "cafe" and a tabble in the sunshine and it turned into an extremely enjoyable lunch. 1 beef, blue cheese and red onion panini and one roast vegetable panini with all the trimmings served by welcoming polite staff this was food to die for. :-)...

As we were in Bawtry we decided to lunch in one of its many restaurants. The warm sunny weather suggested an outdoor lunch, and the Tapas sharing platter sounded just right. We all three thoroughly enjoyed it, and the friendly and helpful waiter rounded off an excellent experience. A little bit of Spain in England in April!? Wow! The only... More

Visited here last week after discovering Bawtry for the first time. We sat outside in the sunshine and both had Chicken Mayo sandwiches on brown bread, home made coleslaw and side salad. It was delicious, the staff were extremely friendly and efficient and the coffee was perfect. Highly recommended for a tasty meal in a lovely paved area away from... More
