We regularly visit the coffee lounge and find it ideal for a light lunch. The marina setting is lovely and the meals are always very good. In all I would have no hesitation in recommending this cafe to anybody.

“Great setting for a Great coffee lounge.”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

Lovely ambience, excellent service and food tastes great. If you are around the Audlem area and looking for somewhere to have a bite to eat or just a drink make your way to Overwater Marina and visit the Coffee Lounge. A great selection of either freshly cooked food,salad's,cakes were available and a lovely selection of ice creams. Also a great selection of both hot and cold drinks. The service was excellent from Debbie and Vernon not forgetting the other members of staff who also looked after us. Altogther a great setting,great food and great service. We will most certainly be calling again.

“Great location and food & drink”
Reviewed June 17, 2012 via mobile

Myself and a friend walked along the canal towpath away from Audlem past The Shroppie Fly pub, then took the 8 minute scheduled boat service (adults £1 each-way, children 50p, dogs & pushchairs free - proceeds to the RNLI) from Lock 15 aboard the 'Audlem Lass' to the drop-off point across the canal directly in front of the Coffee Lounge in the marina. A leisurely and unique way to arrive! The site can also be accessed on foot via the canal path/a footbridge (Bennetts Bridge, No 80) or via the road. 

The Coffee Lounge opened in Spring 2010.

Located next to the Shropshire Union Canal.
Scheduled boat service available certain times of the year, with drop-off point directly in front of the Coffee Lounge.
Friendly staff.
Good range of hot and cold drinks and homemade lunches and cakes.
Gluten free available. 
Fortes ice cream available.
Selection of narrowboat magazines to read.
Everywhere is very clean and well-maintained.

“Lovely setting, lovely food”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

The Coffee Lounge is in a lovely setting on the edge of the marina and alongside the Shropshire Union canal so a great place to watch the world go by slowly. Even better in the summer sitting outside!
Debbie and Vernon who run the lounge are very friendly and welcoming and do lovely light lunches all freshly prepared, homemade soups, sandwiches, all day breakfasts and other hot meals as well on the daily specials board. My husband had freshly cooked 3 egg omelette and I had hot beef and caremelised onion bap. Debbie also bakes all her own cakes, we love her scones - really light, and carrot cake - moist and delicious. They do different types of coffees, teas etc to accompany the meals.
Watch out in the winter they are not open every day I think Thursday - Sunday and mainly over lunchtime but then after Easter I think open 6 days a week over the summer with longer opening hours. Worth the 10-15 minute drive from Nantwich.
