Can get busy between midday and 1.30pm weekdays as regular customers go there. I had a wonderful vegetarian quiche yesterday, it was the best I have ever tasted, I was tempted to like the crumbs off the plate !!! few seats outside in warmer months with pleasant green and fountain. My friend appreciated the Vegan friendly choices. They also do... More

As a member of the Poundbury Rotary Club we meet every week for breakfast. Staff are always friendly and accommodating as sometimes members wish to have something different due to dietary reasons. I also 'use' the cafe for occasional meetings and it is the cheapest place around, with some of the best coffee and food.

We had a wonderful lunch here recently. I had a warm chicken and bacon salad and my husband had a ploughmans. I can honestly say this was one of the best cafes we have been in for a long time. The food was delicous and reasonablty priced, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We will certainly be returning!

Four of us popped in here for a mid-week lunch. This is a high quality community minded cafe in one of the lovely squares in Poundbury. It was busy but not crowded with a great, steady local trade. The food was excellent and the service some the of the best I've ever experienced. Try their fruit smoothie made from summer... More

Excellent idea for young people and adults with learning difficulties. The staff were very friendly and highly efficient. The coffee was first rate, not to bitter like most places I have been to. Would recommend a visit at any time if you want good service and good coffee.

Not only is this little gem a great place to eat, but it gives you the happy knowledge that you are giving some of the worst advantaged people in this country a fabulous experience of employment. Three cheers for this great little cafe, would recommend it to anyone.
