Went into this place by chance that my 3yo is obsessed with churches and I was hungry. Its lovely. The staff are so accommodating for custom orders. GF foods available. Priced well. Supporting people with disabilities. Small children's area with toys. A delight!!!

Popped in for lunch for a first time visit and had the stew and dumplings, have to say one of the best meals I've ever had, cheap and lovely staff working for an excellent cause. Would 100% recommend!!

After never noticing this place I was told to come here by a friend and now we come here often. The food is delicious and fresh and there's a cute little area with toys for children. Highly recommended!

I recommend a latte & a cheese scone. Fair prices, friendly & efficient staff, beautiful architecture, variety of food items, dog friendly, comfortable place to have a rest, meet with friends or read a book.

Beautiful setting in the centre of town. Enjoyed a latte and a fresh panini. And took away two slices of cake for later! Friendly and efficient staff, clean tables and plenty of comfy seating. Will certainly return ☺️

Run by volunteers (?) And excellent value without frills. Serves breakfasts, snacks and light lunches. Best scones in Ipswich. Prefer it to characterless and pretentious chains.

MY son booked his daughter's birthday lunch here for 6 children. The staff provided a good variety of finger food and drinks for the girls. This is a great setting for a birthday lunch/tea and the staff are really accommodating.
