“Worth waiting for a seat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Unlike the branches in Alresford and Guildford, the Winchester Caracoli has few seats but is certainly worth a visit. The coffee is the best in the city and the relatively limited food choices are always excellent with the salads and cakes highly recommended - the pork pies are also very good.

“Lovely deli food, central location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Caracoli is a local mainstay for anyone living near Alresford. Now they have a central Winchester location.
They serve lovely sandwiches and nibbles made with great ingredients. The serviceis really friendly, knowledgeable and chatty.
Slightly pricey, but a top choice for take out brunch & lunch.

“Latest trend in the area, but good coffee and morning croissants”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Tried for some lunch near 2pm on Sat - all out of sandwiches. There the next day for mid morning breakfast. Good food and coffer, lovely OJ, and decent service.

“Too good to walk past”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Easily missed on the busy High St, Caracoli is well worth a quick refuelling stop. Great coffee plus an excellent range of interesting cakes and sandwiches along with a selection of deli items to take home. Staff are friendly and cheerful (not always the case in Winchester!) and service is usually spot on.

“Nice coffee but needs tables”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

A nice coffee as you would expect from Caracoli, and always some very tasty cakes on display as well. The only downside is lack of seating to actually enjoy your purchase.
