Called in on spec for coffee and was impressed. Relaxed atmosphere and pleasant location overlooking the river. Good selection of reasonably priced cakes and pastries and efficient table service, though counter service would have been adequate. Would call again.

I'm gluten free and found there were lots of cake choices!! I was also able to have any sandwhich with gf bread.... More

I'd heard about this place from friends and family and it sounded great. We arrived and ordered drinks and sandwiches with the chocolate tasting board to follow. Our sandwiches arrived (over £6.00 for a sandwich is pushing it I think) which we then asked if we could have our drinks. After we had finished eating we sat for a good... More

I've been going to this cafe for years, and it used to be amazing. It still has a fabulous selection of cakes, but the savoury food has dropped in quality and the service is just diabolical. After 3 consecutive visits where they messed up my order (first time they forgot my food completely, second time they got it wrong, and... More

Visited with my wife for the chocolate tasting experience and upon arrival was greeted by staff and shown to our table which had been reserved. The staff were polite and helpful. Our chocolate tasting experience could have been better, we both felt the strawberry and banana slices were lovely dipped in the hot plain chocolate, but the chocolates did not... More

Overlooking the River Thames the location is perfect for enjoying the wonderful food prepared carefully and expertly. The dining area is large and tables are well spaced for conversations not to be overheard. A selection of daily papers only encourages the idea to relish the food. The basic all day breakfast includes everything you could possibly want, the various egg... More

We had the chocolate tasting experience and also ordered sandwiches first. I thought the sandwiches were well over priced for what they were but its Henley so you can kind of accept it. The chocolate tasting was fine - but its all a bit samey and not something I would want to eat in one sitting. Nothing particularly wrong about... More

We called here yesterday, a blustery, showery afternoon. First impressions, it looked nice so we went in. We just had soup but it was quite the best we have had. The restaurant was very nice, food also and the service was first class. Glad we called.

We enjoyed a light lunch followed by using the chocolate tasting/prosecco gift voucher. The cafe was very busy and rather noisy with mainly young mums and babies/young children but we enjoyed the food which was served promptly. For me the platter of chocolate would have been more enjoyable if served at room temperature as chocolate was cold and hard, however... More
