While searching for a nice cafe for brunch one lazy Sunday, we stumbled upon this bright and airy cafe with a great choice of breakfast and lunch options. Good for gluten free. Friendly personal service. Would recommend a visit :) Alex and Amy

If you are looking for a good (unlicenced) lunchtime meal in Trowbridge then you really can't do any better than this, either with quality or price. My wife and I eat there regularly, and never have any problems.

Was not really expecting much but for a very busy cafe the quality of the food was below expected. They should use slight better quality ingrediants , the bread was really poor quality and cheap the kids left it!! Saying that we all eat and enjoyed the rest of the food. Can't fault the atmosphere as it was busy and... More

I'm sorry to hear parts of your visit were not up to scratch. All of our ingredients are freshly bought including the bread which is from a bakery so it's unfortunate to hear that it wasn't up to standard. If I recall correctly this was the Saturday we were a little short staffed! So can only apologise for the staffing... More

Service was very good by the young lady serving..only problem was my son wait 10 extra minutes before his food came out compared to the rest of the party. Maybe more help to the waitress as she was the only one serving. Recommended very nice I will return.

Thank you for the review we are glad to hear your experience was a mostly positive one, there was a mixup with what was written which caused the delay as they had to do the additional one from scratch! Can only apologise for that and I hope you'll visit us again soon despite this! More

my mum introduced me to this cafe, never went in it when it was down the alley as it was tucked away but since moving to its new premises we visit at least once or twice a month for lunch. The food is great, reasonably priced and the coffees are wonderful. We have tried a variety of items off the... More

This little cafe that was tucked away down an alleyway has moved!! And what a transportation it has undertaken!! They have redecorated their new premises and where they are it's much lighter in the cafe. It has a cozy family feel and much brighter than the old place. Going by the constant stream of ppl to and from the kitchen... More
