“Nice, but slow service and very overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

Just visited this cafe, overall nice atmosphere and friendly staff. However, food service was very slow and when it finally arrived about 30 minutes after we ordered, it didn't meet our expectations. The quiche was nice but small and cold, so not impressed considering how long it took them to prepare. And at £7.95 per portion it wasn't worth the money.
Coffee was mediocre and large scone was not large at all.
To sum up friendly staff, nice atmosphere but not worth the money we paid and we will certainly not be coming here again.

“Fab coffee, fab cake, lovely staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012 via mobile

I stumbled across this small cafe two years ago with my husband whilst visiting family in the area. We called back because we remembered how nice it had been. It is still really nice! Delicious home made cake and great coffee served by friendly and welcoming staff. Knocks the spots off the likes of Costas (which sadly happens to be very near by).

“A real gem to find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

A lovely little cafe in the heart of Tring. The coffee and tea was good and there was a really nice selection of homemade cakes. A nice place to sit and read the paper on a Saturday morning, or grab a light lunch.

“bright and cheery cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

We have been here a couple of times - it is a friendly cafe and the food is good honest cafe fare all served on nicely cleaned tables. They try to have a regular gluten free cake on sale too. They serve a nice cup of tea.
