We'd been in Dorchester on Sunday morning and, having passed the cafe before, we decided to call in and have the Sunday Roast. It was as good a decision as we've made in a long time! Paul and his very friendly staff provided us with an absolutely delightful Sunday Roast. Slices of beef, excellent vegetables, beautiful roast spuds and oodles of tasty gravy. I had a terrific Sticky Toffee Pudding and my wife had a divine lavender & clove home-made ice cream.
Couldn't be bettered.

A visit for breakfast in one of the few places in Dorchester that serve late breakfasts/brunches.
Food was fantastic and really enjoyed the home made ketchup and brown Sauce...they really complimented a hearty and substantial breakfast.

Popped in with a friend on Saturday afternoon, enjoyed a coffee which came with a free homemade biscuit. I also had a delicious homemade carrot cake - don't usually eat cakes but saw someone else have one and I couldn't resist as it looked so good!! Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. Highly recommend

We came for lunch at Hendover Cafe and enjoyed the food greatly. Barry had the special canneloni and garlic bread, and mixed leaves, and I had pate and brown toast with salad garnish. We both chose apple juice, and everything was very well presented and very tasty, as were the large cappuccinos we had to follow. This was the perfect meal to have before going to football. As always, we were welcomed warmly, and we look forward to next time!

Popped in for breakfast on Wed and had the cheese & bacon sandwich, having been served one with cold grated cheese earlier in the week at another establishment we were both keen to ensure that this time we had a ' proper' C&B sandwich (Stoke style). The waitress took on board our request and delivered a C&B sandwich of note with superb strong Cheddar and nice thick back bacon (what is the point of mild Cheddar?) The drinks were spot on also tea in a pot and a cracking flat white. Good food, good service and good quality Ingredients.
