“Great place to eat and meet.”
Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

Spent a wonderful afternoon yesterday with the best hosts you could find anywhere. The food is terrific, they have a fantastic selection of coffees, teas, ice creams and cakes. There is a wide variety of locally sourced food, all.cooked and served with perfection. Great value for money and certainly should not be missed if you are in the area. A hidden gem.

“"Coffee to go crazy for"”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

A relaxing welcoming oasis in our little market town. Cozy and bright with deffinitley the best coffee in Daventry. The friendly service and wide choice of menu provide snacks, freshley made soups and specials of the day baked potatoes and much more. The yummy home made cakes and scones are great for a treat along with an extensive choice of tea, coffee, scrummy hot chocolate and cold drinks.

Thank-you so much. Lots of new and old customers are so impressed with the coffee, and they all seem to think it knocks spots of every single shop in Daventry and the surroundings xxx

“So cosy, it's like sitting in a friends kitchen!”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

I visited this tearoom twice last month. I instantly fell in love with the cosy shabby chic decor. I have never seen such large tea & coffee menus! A simple latte, yet so delicious. Gorgeous hot chocolate. Delicious home-made cake and fresh, local produce. I love the breakfast baguette - bacon, sausage & egg. I must sample something different next week! If you are looking for a relaxed homely tearoom, with amazing service, delicious home cooking, and cosy decor this is the place to go. Well done John, Anna-Marie, Paul & team for creating the perfect tearoom!

These words epitomise exactly what we were hoping to achieve. Other Cafe's can feel very "get them in, get them out", and ours is leisurely and one where we hope friends can meet for many years to come xxx

“Fantastic friendly service”
Reviewed April 10, 2013 via mobile

Having gone to the courtyard cafe on recommendation from a friend I took my childern and we had a great experience. Nothing was to much trouble for the friendly professional staff who looked after our every need. The service we recieved was freindly, warm and welcoming which is lost in high street chains. I will be making more visits to the courtyard cafe.
