The food was prepared fresh and was excellent value. The staff were very obliging and helpful. The menu choice catered for all tastes. The mocha is the best I've ever had!! The fact it seems always busy is testament to how popular it is.

Lichfield is amazingly quiet it seems on weekday evenings so we had the place to ourselves. Polite and helpful staff, despite the “cafe” like menu (yes I know it says cafe but “damn fine” could be more upmarket?) the contents are varied and fairly good....More
