This café is just brilliant, we wouldn't go anywhere else. Fantastic freshly cooked food, excellent service and a wide choice. The specials are always different each time we go in and the staff are happy to accommodate special requests. The only problem is finding a seat!

Food and choices great. Seats in some places very close together. Think would be better with waiting service. Shop would be best used for extra seating. Very popular, rightly so. Starting to look tatty round counter area, does need some work. Would recommend for the food. They also do take out.

Stopping off in Chesterfield for breakfast at Thyme To Eat was definitely the right choice.
A really nice breakfast, plenty of food, all good quality, with friendly staff and pleasant surroundings. Not too expensive, and a good choice.
We couldn't resist the tasty selection of cakes and scones on display and went for wholemeal fruit scones with jam and cream, along with some tea. There is a good selection of teas to choose from.
A very enjoyable little break, and we will definitely visit again next time we are in Chesterfield.

The staff are fantastic, very child friendly and the portions are a good size too. We had soup and scrambled eggs on our last visit. The teacakes are a snip and the Chocolate and Beetroot cake with a dash of cream tastes like velvet.
Nice touch also that staff carry your tray.

Hi, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review. We love getting such positive feedback and are glad that you appreciate our friendly approach. We are all mums so know how important it is to welcome children - just wish we had more space for additional high chairs and changing facilities. Agree totally about our amazing cakes, we are incredibly lucky that Jane who makes the majority of them likes experimenting! Thank you again, Katherine x

All three of us agreed that we had generous portions, well cooked - outstanding value food. This place is worth a visit whether or not you are vegetarian (I only sympathise with the vegetarian / vegan philosophy, I cannot give up all meat). Downsides are: (1) this is a small cafe and it is difficult to park a buggy without inconveniencing others & (2) the toilets need a makeover.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a lovely review, as I have said previously the whole team really appreciate such positive reviews. I totally agree with you about the poor state of the toilets and we are hoping to meet with the landlord to discuss a total refurbishment of this area soon. We are also looking at ways of increasing capacity which should hopefully help with the buggy problem (we are always happy to put buggies behind the counter but know not everyone likes to do this). Thank you once again, Katherine
