We had a lovely lunch in this central cafe-service was a little slow and menu is somewhat limited but still tasty and good value. It has an interesting gallery upstairs and has lots of space for functions and parties. A lovely little town to visit!

Simple food, friendly staff, nice atmosphere and great prices. The antithesis of a Costa/Neros/Starbucks , the most relaxing and grounded venue for coffee and cake in Leek.

Came here for a light bite with my wife, daughter and young grandchildren - semi child friendly in as much as they had some space and tolerance but that is all. The setting is practical and the food choice is limited but good. Had a panini which came with salad and hit the spot. Coffee also good. Looks like the... More

Had lunch here with a few friends. We all had the root vegetable soup which was rather bland. It was served with two very tiny pieces of bread. Service was good if a little slow when ordering at the counter.

Relaxing coffee area with variety of seating in spacious light area, and WiFi. Drinks ordered were good but cakes FIVE STAR. The coffee area itself was clean and attractive: toilets and passage to them grubby hence four stars rather than five.

Dropped in to the Foxlowe for coffees. Thank goodness we only ordered regular ones as they were huge. We enquired what large coffees looked like and apparently the cups come with two handles so that you can lift them,- must be a caffeine overload! Anyway, our regular coffees were very good and more than adequate and very reasonably priced, much... More

Had lunch here as our number one choice was not open. Menu choice was tiny and very unimaginitive. Baked potato, soup, wraps. I had the veggie wrap which was okay. Hubby had the mushroom and tomato rarebit. He was really disappointed with it. Although he said it tasted okay it was basically a big sloppy mess on two pieces of... More
