“Delicious - a complete gem!”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

This is a real find! I have eaten there several times and each time the food and service were exemplary - whether lobster, crab salad, home-made soup, quiche, steak baguette or just an omelette - everything really IS home-made and tastes so. Quick, efficient service from friendly staff makes it the ideal place to drop into for a bite - breakfast, lunch or tea. Very reasonably priced, too. Type of place you would be just as happy eating on your own or taking the family - very relaxed with great, buzzy atmosphere.

“Fantastic place, lovely staff”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

Visited today, sat on the roof terrace which gives a welcome break from the town! The young gentleman who took our drinks order was very polite, and the lady owner who visited us to check on our food, was very interesting. All in all, a fantastic and eccentric cafe, serving brilliant food with absolutely cracking staff, not our first visit, and certainly won't be our last... A complete gem!

“Friendly with good food”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

This is a small cafe in Ashbourne with good quality freshly prepared food. The service is spot on and the staff very friendly and helpful.

I had a lunch with a friend and we both enjoyed our salmon salads which were tasty and all very crisp and fresh.

A nice atmosphere and I will return

“Best food and service is Ashbourne”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

While on holiday in Derbyshire we visited Ashbourne.
Looking for lunch came across Café Impromptu. Appearances can be deceptive, my first thought were a nice little market town tea sandwiches etc outlet. No No MUCH MUCH better!!
A varied menu, excellent service, very well prepared and presented food. All made in house.
Home made cake's to die for !! a long way from where my wife and I live but next time in the area we are defiantly going again.
