We were ready for a coffee and saw Cafe Piazza with tables and chairs outside. We were served quite quickly and with excellent coffee. There was a notice on the door to say that they weren't able to serve food and were looking for a chef!

We decided to stop here for lunch during our trip to Alnwick. We sat outside with our dog. The menu was filled with a lovely selection. The waitress was friendly and took our order. 2 hot sandwiches and a jacket potato. People inside were coming after us and getting their meals, and then a man ordered some hot food 20 minutes after us and he got his!! After a 30 minute wait we had to ask if they knew how much longer our food was going to be. We thought they'd probably forgotten about us. The girl went and checked and brought our food out. They were apologetic however we were disappointed that we had had to sit in the cold and wait so long. My dad's parking was running out and we would have stopped for coffees but we thought why bother, they were so slow. The food was actually very nice, presented well and served hot. I just don't know why it took so long. We had coffees elsewhere.

Stopped here on our way to Scotland. Arrived at 10:45 and was told that we could not order off the breakfast menu as last orders were at 10:30, so we went for sandwiches which were bland and dry. Whilst we were eating a couple arrived and were served by the same waitress...they ordered from the breakfast menu! We should have gone to Melvyn's.

Found this place late in the afternoon for a late lunch. Great selection of food, reasonably priced, presented well with great service. Highly recommend for a light lunch or coffee.

Visited with the family for a spot of lunch. The food served was cold - the cheese on the paninis were barely warm never mind melted! The girl behind the counter had a coldsore and decided to apply coldsore cream in full view of the customers, decided not to wash her hands then continued to handle the cutlery and wrap it in napkins! Hate to see what the kitchens like if this is what goes on in the view of customers!!
