We frequent Lambretts quite often due to the lovely sunny location. The service has always been excellent. The staff are friendly casual yet still very professional. The food is always consistently good and the choice is quite vast on the blackboard menu. Keep up the good work guys and girls

Cafe was less than a third full on a sunday morning and even with the large number of kitchen and wait staff working that day things moved at a snails pace. Ordering meals seemed to take an age, when we did order our meals we luckily got them to check order and they had missed two things. Three other groups that ordered after us had their meals delivered before us and in the end it took over 45 minutes to get our meals out to us. When the meals arrived they were tasty, but definetly on the cold side and they had obviously been sitting somewhere cooling as hollindaise sauce had solidified/congealed and poached eggs have begun to fully set from the residual cooking heat.

Only went here as Morrisons cafe was full that morning and very disappointed that we did. Will not be returning.

We ate at Lambretta's twice and both times we enjoyed the spaciousness of the cafe, although we thought the second time we visited that the music was a little too loud and overpowering.

Service was casual and laid-back. The big breccie and eggs benny were deemed average and the coffee we both declared was slightly better than average. We also tried the pies that were in the cabinet, but unfortunately they looked better than they tasted. We were also surprised that there was no side salad (even a small portion) included with the serving.

We started off with brunch on a Saturday morning - then wandered off to the market and shops. Meantime other friends who were also in Nelson arrived for lunch at Lambrettas and so we were summoned back - which wasnt hard to do. We found a table in the small courtyard and as different friends came and went during the afternoon I would say we spent 4 hours there. Staff very friendly and accommodating - no pressure to leave and as a result there was always someone in our group oredering something more. Excellent coffees and great food.
