This lovely cafe has a really cosy atmosphere. The drinks and cakes were excellent if a little expensive. Staff were friendly and efficient. Worth the slightly higher prices for the nice ambience.

We called in for breakfast and enjoyed food well cooked and reasonably priced. The service is good and the food is delivered to table in a very acceptable time. The only negative is the restaurant is a little cramped with the tables closely located. This...More

Stopped off during a cycle ride around the Wimborne area. Breakfast was nicely cooked and their pots of tea are huge compared to most. Great value for money and a lovely laid back feel about the place.. Will definitely revisit on the next ride out..

This is a lovely little tea rooms come cafe. The cakes and pastries are to die for and the drinks are very good, with hot chocolate being my favourite. Traditional friendly service.

This is a lovely little cafe with an extensive menu. We have visited here numerous times as a family but also with friends and it never disappoints. Good selection of food and drink, lovely relaxed atmosphere and service with a smile.

Met a friend here for a coffee which turned into two. Loved the decor and furniture, coffee was good, atmosphere was welcoming and although it was busy (Clearly a popular late morning breakfast haunt) it was a calm and a great place for deep conversation

Another visit to Cloisters and another great meal, hot & tasty and the coffee was fab too. If you haven't tried one of their teacakes, you are missing out!
