Had coffee & a delicious almond slice while waiting for the rest of the group then an excellent jacket potato with beef chilli. Others had the spinach and feta pie. All came with salad & home-made coleslaw. All food was great as were friendly staff

Enjoyable lunch break here in this quirky, homely, cosy cafe. All staff really friendly. Latte was lovely - and a generous size. The goats cheese and gooseberry jam toastie was to die for and the salad and coleslaw accompaniment were tasty. As delicious as the cakes looked, there was no space to have one on this occasion. A return visit... More

There's two good cafes opposite each other in The Square in Eyam. This time we chose the Village Green. You can get a full range of meals from breakfasts, sandwiches and cooked lunches, and of course cakes and drinks. We went for the squash & pumpkin quiche with salad from the specials. It came well-presented, fairly quickly with a smile... More

Fab lunch very helpful staff answered allergy questions without any fuss and with a smile on their face. Plenty of food, good quality, well prepared. Offered to refill my tea with hot water without being asked, which was great. I would come back.

On a foggy, damp January day the village Green was like a warm, welcoming oasis. Had planned a walk around the village to look as historic plague sites before meeting my husband and dog for lunch. The weather closed in and I decided a hot drink was needed more than a cold walk. I had looked the Village Green up... More

For some reason I'd never seen this place before despite being relatively local and spending loads of time in the area over the years. Really nice food, good range, nice drinks and cakes not your run-of-the-mill cafe. Nice little warm stop for a winters day in the Peak. Will be back soon!

We decided to try out breakfast before exploring the area and were so happy we did. The food is so good we returned for lunch the next day then returned to buy take-away mince pies and freshly made mushy peas to have for dinner in our holiday rental for dinner. We will be returning for breakfast tomorrow. Very warm and... More

This is a marvellous place. We visited Eyam as a family with two young boys, to see the hall and learn about the plague, and needed lunch in between visits. The staff at the cafe were very welcoming, there was something for everyone, from hungry eat-anything boys to a semi-vegetarian adult, and it was all home-cooked and freshly prepared. Not... More

Friendly (and dog friendly) service. Excellent food, including vegetarian options. Drinks and cakes consistently superb. Only problem might be finding a seat but worth waiting for. Menu is more interesting than many cafes.

Description
Super little cafe perfectly located in the heritage village of Eyam in the Peak District. We bake gorgeous cakes and cook tasty savouries 7 days a week for you to enjoy, using fantastic local produce. Our coffee is Fairtrade, organic and rainforest certified but above all is expertly made and tastes great, and we do our bit to maintain the superb environment we are in by recycling and encouraging less packaging for our take-aways.So pop in before or after your walk, or if you're really organised phone ahead & order a posh picnic, crammed with goodies to enjoy on your walk. We'll happily fill your flask with our gorgeous soup on colder days.Free wi-fi is available, there are treats for your four-legged friends, so join us at VG for a warm welcome and a spot of heritage on the Eyam trail.
