Had pleasure of eating delicious sandwiches in this Deli yesterday - never tasted such a juicy prawn sandwich before - loaded with them. Will certainly be returning to that neck of the woods.

The best coffee in the country! I love an smericano, black no sugar and this is perfect. Strong but not bitter and just the right amount of hot water! This is a lovely place we always go to when in Sudbury, Service is friendly but not rushed so don't go if you're in a hurry! Really lovely cheese (sandwiches and... More

They we so welcoming that I returned with my husband a few days later for breakfast. Once again we were welcomed by staff and met David the owner, great guy. Coffee amazing, food simple,... More

I was shocked today to find out when I attempted to have lunch with my daughter, who is nearly 15, that no under 15's are allowed. My daughter is extremely polite, mature, attends a highly regarded boarding school and we both felt discriminated against to be forced to leave on account of her age. I think a better way forwards...

I really enjoyed my visit here. It doesn't matter if you are on your own because there are daily papers you can sit and read and once you have placed your order you can sit and wait for it to be delivered. Perfectly clean and tidy as were the toilet facilities. Nice to go somewhere which I don't think is... More

we always have lunch here when we visit. The food is excellent from a limited menu. The owner is very friendly a knowledgable about wine and cheese and the bistro/cafe reflects this. Nice place and atmosphere. Also sells cheese and wine - got a wonderful bargain of excellent cheddar.

We enjoyed a most delightful evening with exceptionally kind and friendly service and absolutely perfect food. The limited menu (thank goodness!) was thoughtfully put together and cooked by David who obviously cares passionately and knowledgeably about fine food and wine. The portions were appropriate - not hugely over facing so we enjoyed three courses, including a personal cheese board chosen... More

We visited twice recently and found the staff and host most hospitable, even after suffering an overnight flood in one of the rooms! Great coffee, pastries and croissants and really tasty damson jam. Good size tables for lingering over and even Sunday Papers to share. Well done David and your staff.

In recent weeks we have had several experiences in which we have gone to cafes for a quiet drink only to have the experience diminished, if not ruined by a wall of noise. With that in mind, we made it a conscience choice to set out for David's in Sudbury. We had read positive things about David's in the reviews... More
