This small independent cafe is in an attractive lane very near to Chester Cathedral. It is spread across three floors, with the seating area on the top level, the counter on the middle, ground floor, and then a narrow, spiral staircase takes you down to the basement where the toilet is. The building has quite a bit of character, but... More

Visited this cafe several times this year and it remains a very comfortable place to get a great bite to eat and drink. A bit hard to find but this adds to its charm. Staff are friendly and service very good

Came across this hidden gem by recommendation of another coffee shop nearby as they are one of the only ones in the area who serve a decent breakfast until midday. Wasn't quite convinced by the ambience - white and yellow decor doesn't quite go with what I think of when I think of Chester, but this didn't matter once the... More

Efficient and very friendly service with a smile, tables were cleared and cleaned swiftly. We came back for breakfast the following morning and had the full English, and avocado on toast with...

This has to be the most expensive sandwich I have ever had and also the most lacking in filling. I wouldn't eat here again. Also £1.50 for a can of coke is quite excessive

Thank you for posting a photo along with your review - it was very helpful. I could see for myself that my colleague who made your Coronation Chicken ciabatta made it exactly as I would have. The ciabatta (bought in from a local bakery) is the correct size, the coronation chicken mix (made by us with chicken from an award... More

The friendly , no problem attitude means this places upstairs seating area gets busy quick! Great service with a great choice, especially if your stopping for a break in between tours. The owners know the people of Chester well and offer great local produce which brings a taste of Chester to this delightful shop! The Street it's on is a... More
