We're also open on Friday evenings for antipasti sharing platters, nibbles and drinks. Head Chef, Georges Delorme, creates a high quality selection of substantial, flavoursome dishes and brings his passion for fresh produce to the specials board. Proprietors, Phil and Steph Kingsland, love great quality food and have thoroughly enjoyed coming into the business, getting to know the regulars and visitors from afar, and creating a relaxed, friendly atmosphere where wonderful quality food is served by a happy, knowledgeable team.

“The perfect coffee-shop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

Ideally located beside the Thames Path, this place serves really good food and a great selection of teas etc., plus beautiful home-made deserts are so far ahead of the factory-made rubbish that is served up in most coffee shops that there is really no comparison. I had a sweet pie with yogurt and honey that was sublime; I can't remember having a desert this good in a long time, a real treat for the taste-buds.
Don't miss this place if you are near Goring, it's the standard that all cafes should aspire to. Full marks!

“Always excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

We often have coffee here and it's always good. The home made
cakes and scones are excellent, and the lunch menu changes daily. It's always busy, and location close to the river is lovely.

“Excellent cafe with a plus!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

My first visit to this cafe which I really enjoyed. We had hummus and olives as nibbles to start which were generous portions, well presented and served. We both chose the tart of the day, smoked salmon and summer vegetables, which was excellent: good portions, a very tasty filling and lovely pastry. It was accompanied by a potato salad which again was flavoursome and not drowning in dressing.
Sadly we couldn't make room for any more, just teas and coffee, but the selection of cakes looked scrummy - I guess we'll just have to go back for afternoon tea!
Excellent food, efficient and friendly service and a buzy atmosphere made this a very pleasant visit. We intend to visit again

“Ten to Five and they let us in with a smile.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

Just popped in here late one afternoon and the service was brilliant, as we were so late we missed the main menu but had a beautiful cheese scone and an outstanding scotch egg.
Best place for miles around.

“Pity about one member of staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

We could not fault the coffee or cake. However, when I commented on the length of time this simple order had taken to arrive I was treated to a tirade, literally in my face. This leaves a bad taste in the mouth - what a pity.

We had a lovely day yesterday, the sun was shining, everyone was enjoying life and we were very busy. Thankfully, there was only one rude, impatient customer. Thanks to all my hard working and attentive staff.
