“Thought it good”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

Have been here many times in the past years and whenever I visit this restaurant I again liked the atmosphere the lovely coffee with the muffins.
Service always as fast as possible, clean tables, people are nice and polite.

“Great Pies and Coffees!”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

The Pies! It's a must have pies! We tried different kinds in our group and tasted each different kinds... all wonderful pies!
The winner is the Chicken Pie and the Seafood Pie, the creamy sauce is to die for!
Coffee and Ice coffee are so good we have to go back and thank the Barrista for the great coffee!

Definetely a place to have you meal when you're in Thames!

p/s: they have a nice courtyard at the back, very relaxing and sunny :)

In the centre of town with a great variety of food to choose from. Good strong coffee too. Plenty of seating with some outside.

“Fabulous food but not much ambience”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

We stopped here for lunch because the sign out front said "award winning pies".
The cafe was tired and dated looking but the food looked delicious. We don't normally eat pies but they looked so good that we had one each plus coffees and cakes. All the food was really fresh and delicious, pies were extraordinarily good. The service was okay, we didn't have to wait long but staff could have been friendlier. The food was good enough for us to overlook the negatives and we would definately go again but might buy the pies etc to take away.
