Reasonably priced with a fairly standard menu: all-day breakfast, sandwiches and jacket potatoes, for example. The jacket potatoes were good but the salad garnish was meagre(mostly leaves) and tossed in balsamic dressing: not to everyone's taste. The service was friendly but slow and not particularly proactive.

I discovered this place by accident, though quickly became a regular for lunch. The food is usually very good, with some great salads and home made cakes. The problem with this place though is the availability of menu items. They did a great salad deal with three items for approximately £8, with food like curried chickpeas, garlic mushrooms and tomato... More

We have been here several times before and usually it's fine and we enjoy the food. However today we walked in and no-one acknowledged us. We found a table and sat down right in front of the kitchen area but despite it not being particularly busy, and being in full view of at least three staff we were ignored and... More

We visited the cafe for lunch, food was lovely but the service was terrible. The staff were slow, took ages to clear our table and for the drinks to arrive. We piled up the plates for them but still they preferred to wipe a high chair, right next to us rather than clear our table.

Had seen this café while passing by and finally decided to try it. I wasn't disappointed. Service was prompt and friendly and the open plan lay-out added to a buzzing atmosphere. The menu is very tempting and it took a while to decide. Eventually, I ordered a wrap with roasted vegetables and brie - divine! Cakes and desserts looked very... More

This little café is a bit hidden away in Florence Walk so we only found it by accident. It's obviously a locals favourite as it was very busy. This is probably due to the friendly service and great food. Everything we saw just looked so good. Unfortunately we are not locals so wont be able to go back and try... More

This café is normally busy when I pass by. Now I know why. Most of the tables were taken, but found a table for two. Greeted by a friendly waitress, who soon took our order. Ordered Tea, coffee, Bakewell tart, and a sausage sandwich. Within 10 minutes the order was served. Wow! the sandwich was large. They do not scrimp... More

Found this today by accident when visiting Bishops Stortford for the first time. The service really was incredible for a cafe and much better than we'd received the night before in a 4 star hotel restaurant where we'd paid £50 each for a meal. We tried the Hallouimi salad with curried chick peas which was beautifully presented, generously sized and... More

Delighted I found this gem , without a doubt the best carrot cake I ever tasted and a nice brew too served by a lovely friendly Irish girl who really made me feel welcome. Will definitely be visiting again
