A delightful cafe in the heart of Chester in which we enjoyed breakfast. The delicious sausages were cooked perfectly as was the bacon that accompanied them. Poached eggs were perfectly funny and complemented the thick granary toast that they came with. Everything was reasonably priced and service was excellent.

Found this little gem after our regular cafe closed early on a Saturday afternoon. The breakfast's as good as you'll get anywhere, well worth a little bit of a wait for fresh cooked food. Yes I can recommend and I'll be coming back for sure.

I normally wouldn't leave a review for breakfast but my partner and I thought this was so bad that I had to. I ordered croissant and my partner ordered a bacon and sausage sandwich and we both did not enjoy at all. First, the croissant tasted like cardboard and oil, the butter was solid and would not spread on it.... More

This was the best quality breakfast I have eaten in a long time, and what a price £6.45 for full English with tea and 2 toasts. In this day and age you can't go wrong. The place is very small and very busy with foot traffic but well worth a little wait. Will be back 👌

Lots of regulars which is a sure fire recommendation. The only drawback to Cafe Gate is that there is not space for more tables. I often cannot get a table and am then disappointed. The food is prepared and cooked as you order and is excellent value for money

Missed breakfast at hotel and tried this due to it's homely look. Had full breakfast and wife had scrambled eggs toast with salmon. Breakfast was excellent, cooked to order and served with a nice pot of tea each complete with woolly tea cosy. Waitress pleasant and courteous.
