“A great coffee shop.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

This cosy, friendly coffee shop is one of the best in Northampton. Light lunches and snacks are excellent, served by friendly staff and very nicely presented. A lovely place to relax whilst shopping in the town centre.

“Fantastic service and great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

Been here twice.
First time when first opened for fried breakfast. Fantastic.

Second time recently to have a gingerbread latte (better than my regular Starbucks) and turkey stuffing Xmas ciabatta very good.

The place's biggest asset is the manager who has to win the award for the friendliest customer service of any restaurent in the world I've ever eaten at.

First class thorough recommend.

“What a find - Highly Recommended!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012 via mobile

I've lived in Northamptonshire nearly forty years and this is one of the best independent cafes I've been in. Food, service and atmosphere couldn't be better. Mike takes the time to train his staff and that clearly shows. It was also clear that there were a number of repeat / loyal customers. I cannot speak highly enough about this lovely little place......

“Always a lovely place to have lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012

We have eaten lunch here on several occasions. There is always a friendly welcome, it has a comfortable atmosphere and it is generally a relaxed place to eat. The food is nice although they've cut back on their salad garnishes, which seems a bit mean! Staff do what they can to accommodate little ones.

“Absolutely superb!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012 via mobile

I don't really want to tell others about this wonderful little coffee bar as it's my little haven in Northampton, but hopefully I'll manage to find a seat in there!!
Dreams is small but that's maybe why the service is so fantastic (without being too in your face) and the food is always freshly prepared and beautifully presented. They do the best breakfasts I've had, no grease, poached eggs, toast and lovely coffee. They even offer a choice of warm milk for your coffee or tea, which is one of those small touches which makes this place stand out.There's a huge selection of speciality tea and coffee- so, so much better than Costa and the like. There's a good selection of cakes to eat in or take away and they're amazing. This is a proper little hideaway in a town full of cafes, sandwich bars, coffee houses etc with great staff and superb food. Prepare to go up a clothes size if you visit this wonderful little place... It's well worth it!
