Driving through we fancied a comfort break and a cup of coffee and this was an ideal place. Friendly with good service and great coffee & Cakes. Will visit again next time we bare i the area.

A decent menu choice, done well consistently for breakfast or lunch. And they know how to make coffee. The sister store nearby is also worth a visit for the vast array of fresh breads and other produce.

Quality food, competently cooked but inexperienced staff made for a protracted visit, in small premises where more attentive service would benefit owners, customers and those queuing for a seat. Early appearance advised as bookings only taken for 6 or more.

We visited this restaurant for breakfast today and had a brilliant meal.

Firstly, we chose a well-positioned table - a young girl took our order for drinks - all good. Then four people came in and the waitresses moved two tables, but they were moved far too close to ours, meaning that the waitresses were squeezing their rears between the side of our table and two chairs from the other foursome -...

It was jam-packed late on this Saturday morning. After we had found our table, others were arriving and standing waiting to be seated. We ordered a coffee, hot chocolate, and a rather delicious brazil nut and cranberry chocolate brownie - a sizeable portion, ideal for sharing!

Our fault or should I say my good lady and House of Frazer in Chichester! Anyway entered the Hungry Guest cafe after 4pm.

3 of us arrived at 12:01 to order 3 coffees and were told to leave as meals only after 12. No flexibility shown. Is this the least hospitable cafe in U.K. ?

Great menu, great good but most importantly great people. The staff were attentive, courteous and smile! Don't worry if you're asked to wait as it does get busy - the wait will be well worth it. And such good value. Btw the pizza is fabulous
