First time visiting for a works treat out with afternoon tea. Loved it and great value compared with other afternoon teas. Nice setting, lovely outside area. Sandwiches and cakes were so fresh and the chocolate brownie to die for. Staff lovely. I think shutting at 4pm is missing a trick however happy if this remains a hidden gem a little longer!

I've heard many good things about this place which can set your expectations too high sometimes, but thankfully this place did not disappoint. It's a cosy place but it gives a nice warm and friendly environment. There are lots of staff on hand all of who were very friendly and welcoming. The service was on point throughout and when I enquired about vegan options the girl behind the counter knew everything on offer to me, and there was plenty to choose from. She even made recommendations on my order which was a nice touch and showed she truly wanted me to have the best experience possible.
The food and drink were superb! Nothing could be faulted and nothing was leftover. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here and will definitely be back.

I love this place; the coffee and cakes are delicious and the courtyard garden is such a lovely place to sit. The tables inside are all beautiful too, and it's usually packed! The bottles of water with mint leaves in are such a lovely touch. I'm glad that I'm local and can keep going back!

I was double surprised there when occasionally popped for a takeaway coffee at a busy day. First, The Cappuccino was very expensive, second, the price didn't exceed the quality. It was the best coffee in a town according to my experience.

As a dedicated searcher for a best Espresso in Ipswich, I popped one more time. Unfortunately Espresso didn't surprised at relaxed Sunday as well as strange attitude of the staff. Service is good, just seems that the staff doesn't like international visitors or I don't get their manners properly.

My best recommendations for a Cappuccino Coffee lovers!
