Out with friends and dropped in at the café mid afternoon ~ lovely friendly welcome, great choice on the menu and not at all pricey. Next time we're passing through we'll definitely call again!

Dropped in on a whim having seen the board on the High Street. We were the only customers and had a lovely panini / sausage sandwich lunch. Prices are a bit steep: £7.25 for the panini, £3.50 for my 'large' machine made latte, £4.50 for my son's 'large' hot choc with cream and marshmallows. Cakes, as previously mentioned, not over-exciting.... More

We found ourselves in Maldon and having read the glowing reviews on Tripadvisor decided to visit for tea and cake. A big disappointment. All they that was on offer were two teacakes, a few scones and one piece of coffee/walnut cake? The lady at the counter was very nice and understood when we said there wasn't anything we fancied. She... More

Tucked away. Well worth taking time to walk down the alley. Excellent choice for a quick fresh cooked Sunday lunch. Clean tidy. Cooked in front of you by very welcoming and chatty owner. Reasonably priced. Definitely going back Oh yes and I forgot to mention the cakes !!

Costa Coffee looked a bit crowded and we wanted a quiet relax and a good cup of coffee - and perhaps a nice cake. We happened to spot this little cafe, in Quest Place. It's on the opposite side of the road to Costa, and just down a little side street. The coffee was good. We had our latte in... More

Found ourselves in Maldon on New Years Eve and noticed a sign for Request Coffee Shop on the High Street. It is hidden away but like a lot of places slightly off the beaten track they seem to try a lot harder than places on the main drag. Received a lovely welcome as we walked in and our Waitress was...
