“Nice food - needs some rearrangement of furniture!”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

Eaten here several times, with vegetarian and 'all day breakfast' friends and children and grannies. All been very happy with good quality of food, most of which appears to be freshly made (you can see cooking as you sit there) and the variety of portion sizes and options. Something for everyone.
Limited space but the area around the rather cramped till, where you order, and from door to till could be improved by getting rid of sofas and moving tables around a bit. Buggies, walking frames, baby seats etc are difficult to manoeuvre.
New decor is nice but please chuck out the dolls which add nothing! Generally this is a pleasant, warm place with good food and a variety of choices and daily specials at a variety of prices.

“Fabulous lunch”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Took my daughter and grandaughter in for lunch, staff were very welcoming and friendly. The sandwiches were freshly made to order, even made a small one for my grandaughter. We then sampled the homemade cakes WOW they were absolutely amazing! Will definately be driving to stowmarket for lunch again! Many thanks lime tree cafe

“Good food, shame about the service.”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Good food, well presented. All the staff looked miserable and a bit rude so for that reason I wouldn't go back.

“Pity less seems home made”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Went here today on a trip to stow and thought from the outside looked like and interesting place. Opted for a cheese ploughmans as these are pretty hard to get wrong and sometimes can be incredibly good . The only thing that seemed fresh / homemade / not bought in was the chutney which i really really liked and would buy if sold per jar, the rest was average taste but well presented. I think with a bit more in house made / baked / local items this could be a great little gem of a place but as it is not something to recomend
