Lovely little place, the staff were very warm and welcoming and the food was excellent! Thick fresh toast, thick bacon, yummy sausages, eggs, black pudding etc etc with lovely coffees and Lucius milkshakes. We went back for breakfast several times and were never disappointed. Well recommended.

This is a super little cafe, well worth a visit. Although it looks a little 'twee' from the outside, it's offerings are suitably tasty and hearty. The 'small' breakfast was very good, with nice warm tea (in a china teapot, with a cosy!). Nice ambience too, and the two young ladies serving were very friendly and efficient. All in all,... More

The service and food was great this morning, I would have given five stars but I could not believe my eyes when a group of people came in with a dog. Surely it's not very hygienic to allow animals in a cafe where food is being served.

We were attracted by the quaint look of this cafe and we're also impressed by their adverts for many dietary requirements, even though we don't need them ourselves. When we went in, there was only one table free but it still had dirty pots on it. After a few minutes a waitress did come to clear it and wiped the... More

Thank you for your review. I am sorry you had a bad experience at our cafe, however, it is clearly written in bold letters on the menu and on numerous blackboards around the cafe that you are to place your order at the till. At busier times we find its impossible to keep tabs on the tables to run a... More

My wife and visited looking for brunch but unfortunately we didn't get as far as ordering. We got the table cleared and wiped but then nothing....... no one spoke or even mentioned when we might have our taken. We gave up in the end and moved to Dillon's. What a difference! A warm welcome.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry you had a bad experience at our cafe, however, it clearly states in bold writing on the menu, and on numerous blackboards around the cafe that orders are to be placed at the till. We find that the fast turnaround of customers makes it impossible to run a table service. I hope... More

It looks quirky as you step in but the steamed up windows indicate that the cafe isn't as hygienic as it should be. There is mould & mildew around the edges of the windows, lots of damp mouldy patches on the walls above the windows, especially the one on the left of as you look out from inside. We sat... More

Very cold morning outside, very warm welcome inside. From the moment we went through the door and smelled all the lovely food being cooked I felt at home. There was a lovely atmosphere and the food looked very enticing. I had Thai spinach soup with white bread and it was delicious, the bowl was very generous, thank goodness- I loved... More

Found this lovely cafe on a day trip through Derbyshire. As already reviewed, we were spoilt for choice. I opted for the large breakfast, replacing tomatoes and mushrooms for an oatcake. My partner chose the veggie breakfast. Both meals were delicious and served promptly. I have given 4 out of 5 on the strength of the meal,atmosphere and choice on... More

Opted the vegetarian breakfast which was delicious with a pot of traditional breakfast tea in a pot with a tea cosy on it. Proper china cup and saucer. All... More

We made an effort to travel home via Ashbourne so we could have lunch at the Flower. My only complaint is that there are too many tempting options and it's hard to decide what to choose. I had a veggie breakfast even though it was past 2 o' clock. It came with a delicious cheese filled oatcake. I really wanted... More
