Popped in for lunch on a Saturday and although very busy our order arrived very quickly. The staff were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The food was lovely with a good selection of cakes and mains.

Busy little independent cafe, amazing selection of cakes (didn't try one today). We shared a turkey brie and cranberry panini which was just the right amount for two of us (didn't want a big lunch). Served with crisps and a fresh salad, lovely service.

Lovely food, cake and coffee. The staff were very friendly. Child friendly - they brought water for my 2 year old in a toddler friendly cup, prepared her toast in easy-to-eat pieces and provided colouring. The room upstairs is very pretty, with wood panelled walls...More

Shrewsbury has so many eating places that it can be hard to decide which one to walk into if you’re not a local. We chose Taste of Shrewsbury partly because it was open (just after 8:30am) but mostly because the menu sounded really nice -...More
