You have to go upstairs to the art cafe. It's always a bonus to be able to see art pieces when eating. The cafe has 3 Room areas one with a panelled wood wall which I think is quite nice .and 2 other rooms overlooking the street with art for sale. When we arrived it was quite later in the... More

Excellent place for a light meal or snack with good coffee served. Nice collection of modern artwork adorns the walls. One drawback is the steep stairs making the cafe not wheelchair friendly.

Only a drink wanted but it was almost lunchtime so no surprise that the cafe was packed. The service was excellent and the coffee good.

Popped in for lunch, it was my 1st time and my partner is a regular. What a find.. The staff are very polite and attentive, the menu is not vast but sufficient. I chose the Lasagne and my partner the Quiché, both were excellent and great value for money. Well done and one of Hinckley’s best kept secret.

A super little gem of a café. The sausages are to die for. Friendly staff, always willing to give you exactly what you want. Dog friendly too!

My friends and I use this lovely cafe quite often. Not only do they serve great coffee but also light lunches. The baked potatoes are enormous with lovely fillings. There is always soup of the day and a choice of fresh breads. Gluten intolerant products are readily available. Staff are very friendly. A family run concern.

I really, really cannot understand why you want to go anywhere else, particularly a certain chain coffee house down the street, when you have this little gem to go to instead: it is in every aspect just so much better. Try it!

Food is really good. I Tried to order something that was slightly different to the menu and their attitude was one of, I cant be bothered, yet I will charge you an extortionate amount for my rudeness, apathy and service.
