“Great cafe. Especially for breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

Called in after reading TripAdvisor reviews. We just wanted a snack and the menu is perfect. In the end we tried the Eggs Benedict (pronounced excellent) which had two beautiful runny eggs, a portion of chips with garlic mayo, muffins with fantastic homemade (?) marmalade and some drinks. Coffee was excellent. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The layout of the place is good - quite a contained area and loos upstairs for families with small children. Recommended

“Just great really”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

Stopped in here for the first time at the end of March for lunch, and very glad we did. super busy little place - and once we had our food we could see why. Simply delicious. We initially had to wait about 20 mins for a table to be free, but we didn't mind because we could already tell we were going to be in for a treat by glancing at the menus we were given while waiting - a great little idea as it then speeds up your ordering choice once seated and ticks the minutes away quicker, simple idea but a good one. We opted for pulled pork sandwich and warm duck salad with 2 of the home made lemonades. both simply delicious. That would normally do us for lunch, but given it was so nice we opted for a couple of puddings - again absolutely yummy, only tiny criticism is that they were a bit on the small side for the price, but other wise superb - we will once again walk across town just to go here for lunch! - ** As a final compliment ** - despite the ludicrously busy lunch service, the staff were excellent, attentive, friendly, and full of smiles and never pushy or rushing you, which I think deserves massive praise. I have too often been in establishments where the busyness levels were no-where near this and your almost pushed out the door with your coat shoved under your arm because they want the table freed up - So a specific mention to the excellent staff is a must for me.

“Gorgeous girls lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

Took my two daughters and my sister for a smashing lunch on Friday and loved the relaxed but friendly and efficient service and tasty home cooked meals. .We had Sea Bream, perfectly cooked, mushrooms on toast ( delicious) Eggs Royale just yum, and a Chilli Chicken Wrap washed down with an excellent Prossecco. Would definitely recommend a visit when you're next in town.

“Brilliant food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

Had a fantastic meal there last night. 3 courses for £20. The highlights were the homemade lemonade, the rib eye steak and the chocolate beetroot cake. As my friend said about the New York apple crumble 'it tastes of Christmas'. Already planning to go back.

“Is this the best place to eat in Shrewsbury? I think it just might be!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

Friendly, competent staff, delicious menu making it hard to choose. Particular highlight was a phenomenal starter of trio of fish but the whole meal was fantastic. A Friday evening set price of £20 for three courses is really good value. Love how you can see Toby and his team working in the kitchen - creates a great vibe.
