First visit to this establishment, ordered Americano with cream and a slice of carrot cake. You have to order from the counter, which is a pity as with the number of staff on I would have thought table service would... More

Mine was the "Pudding bagel" which had spinach, tomato, bacon, black pudding and a perfectly poached egg. All this for only £6.95! We were planning on having a cake but we're too full and their...

Lovely home made cakes and smooth coffee. Ideal stop in the middle of town. Privately owned with polite staff. Clean and smart. Reasonable prices. They do meals and light bites too

First cafe visited in Stamford, as newbies to South Lincs, and were not disappointed. So good to have the choice of a local independent. Great range of food and drinks, plenty of seating, including outside, and friendly, helpful staff. 'Ole!'

Situated in the heart of the town this is a must for anything needed for refreshment- food and drink. Always busy but well worth the wait.

My wife and I were recommended cafe black for breakfast and were not disappointed. They have a great selection of items for breakfast and we went for the bagels, Sarah's with smoked salmon, and mine with bacon and black pudding. Very well cooked and quick service even though they were very busy. Definitely worth trying

My husband and I always like coming here for coffee and maybe a spot of lunch and always enjoy it. However my only constructive criticism is that the coleslaw is improved as it really isn't very nice
