I like to take my time here, over a tasty decaf coffee. It's nice to watch the world go round for half an hour in the comfort of warm and pleasant surroundings. The decaf is amongst the best I've had, not at all bitter like many others.

Food was ok. Eggs tasted like vinegar and made me feel a bit sick so ate less than half, coffee tasted okay but took a long time to be delivered - will possibly return

Hi Andy, Thank you for taking time to review us here at Circo Lounge. Apologies firstly for the taste of the eggs, I assume that it would be our poached which do poach in boiling water and vinegar, we may have been a bit heavy handed on the vinegar on you visit. At peak times I'm afraid that we do... More

We unfortunately didn't book this as we didn't expect it to be so busy. But the place was packed! Which is always nice to see. The staff were great, they couldn't guarantee us a table as there were 9 of us but we waited in the garden area with drinks and the staff eventually were able to put tables together... More

Very nice decoration, nothing like a usual cafe. Very good service although they are busy most of the times. Excellent espresso & cappuccino coffee. The breakfast is well cooked and the pancakes with yogurt and strawberries are delicious! There are some board games for the children and some books to help you spending some time while you enjoying your coffee.... More

The quiz was very enjoyable. There were 50 questions read out and we had to answer them on a sheet of paper. No cheating. We swap at the end with another team. Sadly we didn't win or even get the jelly beans. Oh well. It was all good fun. Good idea for having quiz night at the lounge. I will... More

As a family we regularly catch up over breakfast on a Sunday. Thought we would try here for a change. Food was OK. However we were unlucky with our allocated table: Very dimly lit Behind a big base speaker so we had to compete with drum and base (mostly base) Next to a table of poorly behaved children running around...
