“Great to chill out”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Been here regularly for coffees and for lunch and breakfast in the last couple of weeks and it's a perfect place to chill out from the bustle (if you can call it that) of the town centre.

Ambience, decor and music is great, even when there isn't anyone tinkling the ivories in the corner, with plenty of cosy sofas and chairs scattered around amongst the tables. When it's busy you never feel crowded, when it's quiet you feel like you've discovered a little gem. All the staff are efficient, smiley/happy types but have that invaluable skill of not intruding.

All the food I've had there has been great - nothing ground-breaking but it's a surprisingly extensive menu and everything's been cooked well and tasted much better than expected from what I initially thought was a jumped-up café.

It's a very welcome change to boring chain shops, but there's no one thing that blew me away hence 'only' 4/5.

Still, great for everything from a quiet coffee with a paper to a meal with friends, with the piano angle an added bonus.

“Lovely lunch”
Reviewed October 21, 2013 via mobile

Great venue, atmosphere relaxing and enjoyed the live piano music. Menu has something for everyone and the sharing platters are great we had the leaf cold platter with lots of dips, cold meats and warm crispy bread.. Highly recommended.

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

Went at lunchtime - young guy playing cool jazz type music on a grand piano- he was very very good. We ordered hunters chicken which was very nice, but wished we'd ordered tapas when we saw what was coming out to other tables - it looked wonderful! Prices very reasonable. Prosecco by the glass which is always nice! There was a lovely relaxed atmosphere, with all age groups represented. All in all a very nice experience - well done.

“My favourite place in Leam!”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

I just love this place! I love the way this place is made: two different counters, one for tea and coffee and another one for amazing cocktails or other drinks! I like to go there either for lunch or for a drink in the evening. The piano in the middle of the room is a brilliant idea, the music is always different. Definitely the place to go in Leamington!

“Absolutely wonderful”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

My first visit will definitely not be my last.

Food and service was great as was the idea of having live Piano in the background. Will definitely be spreading the word about this place.

I had the burger with jalapeños and a salad, accompanied by two hugs cups of coffee for a Sunday Brunch whilst my friend had. Salmon and Cream Cheese Wrap. Bother were delicious.
