“I'd say better than some of the other reviews”
Reviewed March 24, 2014 via mobile

The cafe has been remodelled since I last visited a few months ago. Some of the deli stock has gone: not surprising as it rarely seems to sell. There is now a bigger cafe seating area.
Coffee always very good. Actually the cakes are getting a bit expensive: £2.75 for a chocolate brownie (but it's very moist, unlike in many cafes).
I scored the service 3 as it's part self-service with 'order at the counter'. Staff friendly.
So, will return but am watching the price.

“Could have been so much better”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

We stopped here for a coffee, drink and lunch. Oh dear - it's expensive, portions are tiny and staff aren't at all happy. Other than that it was okay.
The pressed apple juice was a ridiculous price, the tea tasted of washing up liquid, sandwiches were small and their fillings passable. Our orders were muddled up.
The sandwiches and cakes were uncovered and the ladies in front of us coughed generously over them whilst paying for their orders.
The Google reviews are good - so it was either a bad day or those reviews are written by chums...

“Great coffee”
Reviewed January 12, 2014 via mobile

We have been to Caracoli several times and enjoy the food and coffee, though mainly only order coffee as the food is a bit pricey for us. The staff are friendly and the service is usually quick. It can be very loud when it is busy, but I guess this shows how popular they are. The garden area is nice.

“Nice place for lunch”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

Great deli, fab place to stop for a light bite, if a little on the pricey side (any more expensive and I think it would be too much), lovley little garden in the warmr months and seating out front to watch the world go by in this charming little village

“Good experience”
Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

This is a great cafe with a deli. Innovative food choice and good coffee. Prices OK but a bit higher than expected. Probably at the limit of acceptable.

That said good service and open on a wet 1st Jan. Thanks.
