4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Went there for lunch today, we'd just arrived in Dorchester, the menu looked interesting, the clientele seemed happy, so we went in... seated immediately, ordered a couple of mixed platters and two 'tapas' starters. After about a 10 minute wait, it all came together (which wasn't quite my intention, but really didn't matter, and I hadn't made it clear). What... More

I've been to Taste a few times, normally for coffee and cake, but this time we thought we'd do lunch. I had roast vegetable crostini and it was awesome. Hubby had a melt and loved it too. Atmosphere is wonderful, it's always popular but is set out so you don't feel crowded and the staff are friendly and helpful. Only... More

We have been there four or more years running as a Christmas treat. To sum it up it was really good to start with We gave them the benefit of the doubt and returned but the last two visits have been disappointing. The choices, although there are about 12, are all very similar. The service is very friendly but as... More

Busy cafe, interesting interior and nice staff. We had to dash, so didn't have time to talk to the kitchen, but the food was only okay. The butternut soup didn't really taste of squash. And the 'rarebit' didn't pack a punch of ale. In fact, it was like eating bechamel sauce on granary baguette - very odd. The cakes looked... More

Please come... More

Dropped car off for service and walked into dorchester for breakfast. Decided to visit Taste Brasserie in Dorchester for breakfast and although it cost a little more than other popular places I have to say it was worth it. I had a full English and a pot of tea (loose tea) breakfast included toast. Hash browns were extra but worth... More
