“Superb local cafe.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

I love this cafe. The querky decor and locally produced food is a must. I would urge any one to visit this cafe over the large chains that are in the town.

The staff are endearing and the food is amazing. Give it a try and keep local businesses in the town.

“Great bacon sarnies!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

A great little cafe in central Yeovil for coffee, tea, sandwiches, etc. We thoroughly enjoyed the 'doorstop' bacon sandwiches!

“a favourite coffee shop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Having discovered this very customer friendly coffee shop, i've frequented it regularly. The food is delicious, the service personal, the atmosphere homely.

There's more though.... it is operated by Able 2 Achieve who specialize in giving encouragement and support to young adults facing challenges. Some of these good folk serve in the shop. Wonderful to see their commitment.

A good place for a break, a chat even a celebration.

“Yeovil's best-kept secret?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

I needed a quick, light lunch, and preferring independents, I chose the Winking Frog in Princes Street in the town centre. You order at the counter from a hand-written whiteboard, which suggests to me they change their menu on a regular basis [always a good sign]. I ordered warm asparagus quiche with side salad. The quiche was of ample size, cooked on the premises, the pastry light and crumbly, and the asparagus was full of flavour. The side salad was beautifully presented, a red & green baby-leaf, with a little bunch of red grapes on top. I wish I'd taken a photo. For £3.25, eat in, I don't know how they do it. They also do cakes, pate etc. They must be popular as I hear they are moving to larger premises shortly. I can't think why they haven't been reviewed - maybe the purple & green decor overlaid on '70's formica and pine puts people off - I hope they get better decor advice at the next place.
