Stopped to have a look at Poundbury on the way home from holiday, which I have to say is worth it if you have the time. It is a very interesting and refreshing project. Wanted somewhere to have coffee and a snack and found Café on the Green. It is a lovely friendly place with great service and very tasty... More

Fab cafe. Tasty homemade food, great service, very reasonable prices and a big thumbs up to supporting adults with learning disabilities to learn life enhancing skills. Highly recommended this cafe.

This is a small cafe that has a nice mix of lunch items. Good also for coffee and cake. The waiting staff are wonderful as is Jill the owner. Some staff have learning difficulties who Jill is training in the art of customer service. They are all doing well but need to be given a little extra time so please... More

We visited here recently for lunch with Ben's step mum. The staff are a delight, attentive and friendly. We enjoyed our meals. Included is a really lovely salad which is not always the case when eating out. We just wished we lived nearer! I am not sure whether wheelchair accessible but the toilet is suitable for people with disabilities.

Have eaten here several times in the past and always had a really good meal. The food is freshly prepared and very quickly served. The chocolate brownie which had just been made was to die for as is the lemon bakewell tart. The surrounding are very clean and nicely decorated. The staff are very friendly and attentive at all times... More

I regularly come in here with colleagues and clients, those serving are very friendly, food is tasty and very reasonably priced. Wonderful that those with learning difficulties are supported in this way, the least I can do is support them in return! 😊

A nice little cafe for a casual snack or coffee which never fails to excell. The cafe is staffed by young adults with learning difficulties and staff from other restaurants could learn a thing or two from them. They are an absolute delight. The menu is adequate with a more snacky range rather than a full gourmet selection. Nevertheless the... More

We popped in here during a visit to Poundbury (which we visited just out of curiosity really). The town seemed dead although it was a cold, blowy November day but the reception in the cafe was warm and sincere. Food was very tasty and good value too. The cafe offers work to young adults with learning difficulties and asks for... More
