Secluded little cafe set within a traditional uncover shopping arcade in the centre if Barnsley. (Please refurbish Barnsley MBC as done in Leeds) It slowly served great food at good prices, with inviting leather sofas or tables and with no rush to get you push you back into the busy outside world, a lovely little 'oasis'.

They also do themed Spanish & Moroccan food nights at good prices.

I think we will be drinking from this oasis more. ;))

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

I haven't been here for a while but returned because it was always good before. When I arrived there was a party of OAPs but several trebles free do I stood waiting only to be ignored by staff. After a few minutes I sat down to be ignored again and I had to go end ask for a menu.
I asked for a meal I'd had before, spaghetti carbonara with a chicken breast. Sadly for me the carbonara sauce was very thin more like the consistency of milk and I didn't really enjoy it.
I think in fairness I will return as anyone can have an off day but a bit of attention to single diners would be appreciated

“Best Cafe in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

Lovely cafe serving excellent gorgeous food. The staff are freindly and they have an excellent selection of wines and beers. The freshly cooked food is exceptional and well worth a visit.

“Average at Best!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

Called in Saturday afternoon for a spot of lunch and bottle of wine. Sorry, but the decor is past its best, needs a revamp. Asked what champagnes they had, Pol Roger, so waited quite a while for it to arrive while the maitre d gassed on the telephone, certainly not cold enough, and it in a bucket with six lumps of ice in the bottom. Ordered bagel with smoke salmon and Quiche with salad. The Bagel came toasted, with tiny "dried up end of packed" bits of smoke salmon on, and the quiche was "ping walmed up" (i.e. microwaved and soggy). Not good when you have to drop the ice cubes "into" the champagne to cool it down, Bill was £56.00...... This iconic Barnsley cafe bar has sailed into choppy waters me thinks!!!!
