“Lovely pop in”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

A great place for a light lunch a late breakfast, a morning hot chocolate, or an afternoon tea with a naughty cake. Or even better lovely healthy smoothies to make you feel wholesome & pleased with yourself. Always friendly, warm & welcoming.

Thank you for your feedback. We're adding special smoothies each month and our latest is a chocolate smoothie - yes I know! - but it is healthy! Hope to see you again soon.

“Tasty fresh food - best lunch in Petersfield”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

I just had lunch here with a friend & it was delicious! The food is fresh & full of tasty ingredients you wouldn't find in other cafes in the town. We both had open sandwiches (you can choose to have either sour dough, rye or wholemeal bread), one with chicken satay, avocado & chilli jam, and one with grilled halloumi, roasted aubergine, rocket & houmous. Both very tasty and filling. The service was friendly & the atmosphere & decor was really nice. Great value for money. Will definitely be going back soon!

“Better seating”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

OK I agree with many of the comments posted here but the seating is not great and I would be put off by that. Some or the chair are actually uncomfortable metal stools, small narrow chairs or a narrow hardish window seat. Maybe I am spoiled but I like to relax with my food. Space is an issue I realise this.

Thank you for your feedback. We are undeniably small so the mix of tractor seats and victorian chairs is designed to allow some flexibility for seating and, of course, contribute to the overall look and feel of a vintage shop and cafe. But we'll take note, continue to monitor, and if the general consensus is along these lines then we'll fix that. Your comments are important to us so thanks again.

“Absolutely love it!”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

First went for mid morning coffee with friends and couldn't wait to go back for lunch. I've now done that and wasn't disappointed on any level. I'm not a tea or coffee drinker and it's such a treat to have such a variety of delicious drinks to choose from. My tea drinking friends loved their options too. Now looking forward to trying the breakfast menu, the cake, and more of the lunch options!
The atmosphere is cosy and friendly, the staff helpful: I'd recommend it to everyone.
