What a lovely little place. We had one roast lamb, a triple decker sandwich and a veg breakfast. Ample food, well presented and quite quick. Pleased I found the place on Tripadvisor. If you want to eat here on a Sunday, make sure you book.

Today we had visited Miss Ellie’s Cafe to try their full English after reading all of the positive reviews online. All we can say is wow ! Both the lady who was serving and the chef were very friendly and accommodating from the moment we...walked in. The cafe it’s self spotless and has a lovely feel about it. There are plenty of different food options available to suit all at and at a reasonable price. We both had a full English and it was amazing! The food was fresh and cooked really well.This was definitely value for money. The staff clearly take pride in the cafe and are more than happy to check if you are happy with your food and if they can do anything for you. Thank you for a lovely meal, we will be sure to recommend you to friends and family and return in the future :)More

Came for a bike ride across town for brunch due to great reviews and was a bit disappointed. It was fine for a traditional English greasy spoon breakfast (sliced white toast with margarine, tinned tomatoes, supermarket sausages and bacon and overcooked fried eggs and a...cup of tea) but I was hoping for a more classy continental breakfast (thick fresh bread, freshly cooked tomatoes, choice of fried or poached eggs, real butter, local sausages and crispy bacon with a pot of tea). Good value for what it was though.More

We popped in for a spontaneous lunch , and what can I say …. Well great friendly staff , fresh yummy food served by Maria and cooked by Stuart. Good quality sourced ingredients, well rounded coffee and a tidy outdoor seating area. Busyness did not...fault the experience from these two delightful people in this bespoke cafe. A true treasure of Bitterne triangle. Give it a try if your in the area , you won’t be disappointed. ( cash only )More

We stopped for lunch having completed a long walk up the Common - I’m so glad we did as the food was absolutely delicious, the 7yr old said it was the best cheese sandwich he’d ever had, & believe me, he’s had a few! Our...group also had a lunch off the specials board as well as another sandwich. As we sat in the sunshine the food was devoured and plates almost licked clean.. I will definitely go back there again, the only thing I would add is could the council provide some sort of decking or something to level off the pavement, that way it would make it more comfortable sitting outside, however that mustn’t detract from the food which was tiptop. Thank youMore
