Visited with mum for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed the food. We shared a platter and savoured every bite. We had to leave room for dessert having noticed the white chocolate and ginger cheesecake when we went in. Will definitely call again.

Food is freshly made to order and you get a good portion size for your money. Staff are friendly and efficient. They is a good selection of cakes on offer that all looked very tempting. Great value for money!

I recently visited for a meal with a friend of mine, yet was left bitterly disappointed by the service on all accounts. I have been on a number of occasions and have always felt that the service has been slightly slow, but this experience was bordering ridiculous. We came in and sat down easily enough, yet had to wait quite... More

Decided to call in for breakfast this morning. The place is nice enough inside and the lady serving was nice enough. We were a bit shocked to see the price of the breakfast was £6.95 and didn't include a tea or coffee but we were there and sat down so we ordered. When the food arrived there wasn't loads. We...

I've been here a couple of times now and thoroughly enjoyed it. Staff are lovely and welcoming. I had my baby with me last time and they were very accommodating. Food menu is full of tasty choices. Good stuff for vegetarians. Reasonably priced too. Food has been great on both occasions and I would definitely go again.

The staff here were extremely friendly and the atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming. The food was great, we had a Tastecard which made it all the more affordable too. Would definitely go back, there is a tapas night on a Friday and Saturday which looks ace!

I come here now and again to chill for an hour around lunch. It's not too noisy and the lighting isn't too bright so you can relax. I usually grab something off the specials menu - there's always something different and interesting being served. Only downside is maybe it's a bit small so I only come here with one other... More

Had to wait quite a long time to be served despite very few customers. The cheese and onion pie was very good, but the chips were greasy and tasted strange, also not very hot. As I was with friends I did not like complaining so as not to embarrass anyone. On this experience I will not be returning. The price... More

Went to Padiham to visit a local art gallery. On the way back my husband spotted this delightful looking deli. We decided to have a bit of lunch. This is a lovely place with fantastic food and great service. My husband said the Coffee was fantastic. The Moroccan Pitta was fab. We will be back 😃
