Our first visit was for coffee and cake but after seeing the menu we’ve now eaten here the past 2 weekends. Good vegetarian options and the pies are delicious – hubby is a fan! Pricing appropriate for quality of dishes (portions not huge but are filling). The coffee is tasty and isn’t served too hot (a pet peeve) and there’s... More

Went here for lunch whilst in Chester for the weekend with my partner. We both really enjoyed the meal. Service was friendly, the ambience is nice and it was really good value for money. We don’t get to Chester all that frequently, but would have no hesitation in going again if in the area.

The management has changed, but the quality is still excellent in this cute, dog-friendly cafe. Soup and sandwich is especially good value and the cakes are wonderful.
