A pleasant cafe / bistro at the bottom of Windsor High Street. Dropped in for breakfast, which though a little pricey, was good quality. Quickish service. Sells itself as Italian but the staff aren't Italian.
good place for snacks and light meals. Could have problems with service as there was only one cook / chef serving the whole place and there are a lot of tables.

I visit Avanti in Windsor from time to time where I receive a friendly welcome, often from the owner, and where I enjoy good food from a varied menu at a reasonable price. I recommend it.

Windsor is jam packed with cafe's and bistro's - so you have to be of a fairly decent standard to stay in business and this one is.

Never had a main meal in here, but they do sandwiches, breakfasts, and coffee/cakes to a very decent standard.

Sweet staff as well.

Went in for a very late breakfast. I ordered croissants which were hard, and my girlfriends meal was about 10 minutes after mine. Two meals, two coffees and two orange juices were a horrendous price. Wouldn't go back.

I would personally like to offer you an apology. Sometimes mistakes are made but your breakfasts should have arrived at the same time. Unfortunately you did not complain to us at the time. If you had we would have done everything to put this right for you. If you do not tell us we cannot do so. I think to call our restaurant dire and tired is unfair. No we are not like the standard chains that all look similiar. We are an independent restaurant and pride ourselves on being unique in Windsor. Our staff are friendly and try hard to give our customers good food and service and our prices are very competitive. Again we are sorry you did not enjoy your visit.

We came here after reading decent reviews on trip advisor and then finding is by accident on one of the main streets. No problem getting a table at lunchtime for four. We had decent club sandwiches and excellent freshly squeezed OJ. Very friendly staff, a good looking main menu and always nice to be able to support independents.
