“Our expectations were met!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

on one of our rare visits to Ledbury(we must try harder to visit more often!),we had decided to eat at this place and it did live up to its rating. We enjoyed goats cheese and caramelised onion tart and the tartiflette followed by two coffees.The next time we visit Ledbury, Pascal(le Patron)will be in his new premises aptly named 'Chez Pascal' up one of the many charming alleys which abound in this town. All we can say is, if he continues to provide the quality and imagination of the food which we experienced today,this eaterie will certainly endure.

“Not all that amazing..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

Recently visited cafe sez whilst in Ledbury on recommendation and was rather disappointed.

The cafe itself is pleasant & staff are polite & happy to help but the food isn't as cracked up as some reviews on here rave it to be.

The selection of fruit tarts on display look pretty and appetising but upon eating them don't live up to the visual expectations. The pastry was soft & soggy, not crispy as one would imagine pastry to be and the filling (not frangipane) was very sweet but with no real flavour..ever so slightly disappointing thus 3/4 of the tart was left uneaten.
Baguettes were pleasant enough but nothing memorable.

Perhaps I might visit again to give it a second chance but probably won't.

“Brilliant Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Café Sez is wonderful. My wife and I went there for lunch and we were very impressed. The service is quick and efficient. The owners are lovely. The French style food was excellent and well presented. The coffee was perfect. What more can you ask for? I would recommend this restaurant to anyone - in fact we already have recommended it to several people and we only went yesterday. Having had to abandon our last coffee and lunch venue in Ledbury because it changed hands and went downhill with a bump it was a welcome surprise to find Café Sez. Vive la France. Vive Café Sez.

“Best cafe in Ledbury!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

I went to this lovely cafe on a trip to Ledbury for my 21st birthday and it was absolutely lovely. The staff/owners were excellent, and the food was just perfect; it tasted great and was well-presented too! I will be back!
