I only relocated to Lincoln a year ago and quickly discovered the Angel, and it has become an essential part of what my daily life.
The staff are already friendly and welcoming, from my first visit I have been welcomed as a friend.
The food is great and varied. The owner takes great efforts to vary the menu, often they are the most accommodating eatery for my dietary requirements in the city centre.
The coffee is the best in the city, and I would consider myself a coffee geek. The selection of teas and "confectionery" beverages also better than anywhere else I have found.
If you are in Lincoln this is should be on your must visit list. But keep your hands of the vegan fruit cake, it's mine :-D
