“Good vegetarian choices”
Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

Good selection of food for veggies - breakfast, soup, wraps, huge salads. Probably the widest selection in Lichfield for veggies. Can get crowded and noisy, pleased to see the chef has calmed down and is no longer adding to the noise. Free soup sample on entering (veggie and gluten free). I don't need to avoid gluten, but good to see a place trying to meet needs.

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Food in here is always fantastic whether it's an all day breakfast or tasty baguettes. Soup of the day is always very popular. This place is constantly busy with queues for a table always at the door. It won't be long before they have to expand. Great place, great food, great team.

“Just as it says - damn fine!”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

We found the cafe by accident on our first trip to Lichfield a year ago and have been going there ever since! The food is delicious - especially the soup which you can sample in cute mini teacups on your arrival. The menu is diverse and the service is second to none - Suzan, Tony and their staff go above and beyond to make your visit an experience you will enjoy.Whether you are a family on a day out, lunching with friends or wanting tea and cake over a quick business chat this is the place to go and whilst you wait for your food (which is never very long) there is plenty to look at as the walls - and ceiling - are covered in art and curios!
We even met our wedding photographer there! Grabbing a bite to eat has never been more fun - this is a must on anyone's list of damn fine places to visit in Lichfield!
