We arrived for brunch at 11am and were surprised at how busy it was but we managed to find a table around the corner. We were welcomed immediately and informed someone would be with us as soon as they could. The service was excellent and all staff checked that all was ok regularly during our visit. We thoroughly enjoyed the... More

I needed to stop for a coffee and a bite to eat with my two young girls (1 and 3) but not knowing the area I had little option but to hit the 'find me a coffee shop option' on the Sat Nav and to keep my fingers crossed. Thankfully it didn't let me down and it took me straight... More

Had lunch here after looking for somewhere nice to eat. Not disappointed in the least. Lovely cooked food and very pleasant surroundings. Our waitress was only on her 1st day in the restaurant and she couldn't have been more helpful. Cannot praise this place enough and would definitely recommend it to everyone who likes to enjoy food in nice surroundings.

Having already eaten lunch elsewhere, we just popped in for tea and cake later in the day. We immediately loved this place. The staff are very welcoming, it is very homely and the views looking onto the green are beautiful and relaxing. We thoroughly enjoyed our tea and cake, and look forward to sampling lunch next time!

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.
