“Gorgeous cakes!”
Reviewed November 17, 2011

After a long walk with the family this place did the job nicely. Definitely worth a visit for some good food. We’ll be stopping by again.

“Lovely spot with a warm welcome”
Reviewed November 2, 2011

Friendly staff, delicious food and an inviting atmosphere make this place an absolute delight to visit. I’m very surprised by the negative comments on here, the staff were very friendly and obliging.

“Inpolite staff, is not good service.”
Reviewed November 1, 2011

Having a holiday home near Monsal Head hotel, we often walk up and have an ice cream, which is fine from the van, but going into the cafe, is something I dislike. I stood in the que and waited my turn, but when it came to being served, the man, completely ignored me and turned to the person behind me, spending a good ten minutes talking to him- after he'd ordered. Then a couple of weeks later we come back and order and ice cream, and after asking me a few timesif he had the right flavour, he still gave us the wrong ice cream. One tip, for Hobbs cafe: Only be RUDE, if you can back it up.
Its a complete shame the service is so bad. Service with a smile wont go amiss.

“Best hot chocolate in Derbyshire”
Reviewed September 5, 2011

Visited a couple of times whilist walking wround the area. The first time was in deep snow and we treated ourselves to a hot chocolate with the works and it was fantastic. We had "the works" which included cream and marshhmellows. mmmmmmmmmmmmmm

They also have a great selection of homemade cakes and little salads which were very appertising. The cafe over looks the beautiful viaduct and now the old railway tunnels have opened it is a perfect place to stop.

we went there as a family breakfast before a wedding in nearby Cressbrook Hall- the food was great- it was plentiful and kept us going all day- good value for money!
