“Makes grocery shopping bearable!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Clean, bright, plenty to look at and free papers mean I can take a break whilst shopping to chill for a while. The coffee is free with my waitrose card, and there are plenty of snacks to choose from. The service can be a bit slow at times, but it doesn't bother me much.

“Usually you wait; and, wait.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012 via mobile

Now,free coffee; but, be careful if you take two cards to the counter for they will not believe your companion has already taken a seat...
Service system is slow. They need to find a solution.
Quality of coffee mostly good.
Watch out for noisy, badly-behaved children, who seem to be more and more in evidence.

“Nowhere else to eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

We went to Waitrose for breakfast as there was no food worth mentioning at the Travelodge we were staying at. Very clean and food good although a little expensive.

“Better than grocery shopping!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

For a supermarket cafe this has great coffee, cakes and newspapers to help you avoid shopping! The atmosphere is as expected but staff are friendly and welcoming.
