Was walking around Coventry town looking for somewhere to get a nice fry up, have walked past a few times but never been in until now. We had the "great breakfast" 1 x sausage, 1x bacon, Black pudding 😒 (only down side could swap this for extra sausage or bacon.) Egg, beans and tinned toms with toast or fried bread... More

We have been going to Coventry for years now when we didn't even realise this hidden gem was here! The food came our super fast the service was brilliant and the food was a good portion and a fair price. It was a busy Saturday lunch time so we weren't expecting everything to be perfect! We had to ask for... More

For the first time I can remember ate outside in Coventry. It was nice to be in the sunshine but it's a bit basic outside the cafe. We had baguettes. Good size portions but not the best quality ingredients. It was OK and filling and the coffee was nice. Probably try somewhere else next time.

We visit frequently, has it changed management?? Dreadful today, miserable staff to the point of rudeness!! Dirty tables. Made our order, stood at the counter a full 5mins before the girl making coffee decided to speak to me, another girl came to serve me and took my order, grunting and no smile is obviously the way to communicate!! Paid for... More

Food was not very nice when I returned the food I was not offered a replacement or a refund but was greeted with rudeness and very bad manners from a member of staff.the coffee was excellent shame about the sour butter ? That was on the teacake.

Flames is quite AVERA, you would expect a lot more from Flames as it was eye catching when you walked past and it looked posh. However this was not the case everything was very slow even though there was only two people before my and my three friends. We ordered two coffees and two tap waters with ice. You would... More

Stopped here and ordered scrambled eggs and salmon on toast. The place was quiet but waited fifteen minutes before meal was brought to the table. The toast and eggs were lukewarm as they had been standing for a while after preparation .The meal came with wide range of unnecessary accompaniments- slices of lemon, serving of cole slaw, pieces of tomato...

Stopped here on my lunch break looking for something fresh and healthy to eat. Ordered the omelette and asked for no chips. I asked how many eggs were in the omelettes and the girl said she didn't know because the eggs are already pre mixed. Not even sure what that means. She guessed there were 4 eggs in it. She... More

Awful. Table of me and 6 work friends ordered food within 2 minutes of each other. I was left waiting 45 minutes for my food (that's 45 minutes from when the first person in my group received food). Food is average at best. Waste of time, joke of an establishment that needs new kitchen staff who can actually serve a... More
