We went for coffee (good) & chocolate (bit sickly & too many marshmallows), and something to eat - the teacakes were excellent. Excellent, friendly service. Our neighbours were enjoying what looked to be a fine breakfast.

Brilliant! They even opened early (by arrangement) to get all 14 in our group served before everyone else arrived! Breakfast was delicious.

Popped in for breakfast on a Saturday morning, both of us had veggie breakfasts, couldn’t fault them. Lovely meal, friendly and helpful staff, and decent prices. Will definitely visit again.

Our 2nd visit to Lichfield and 2nd visit visit to this cafe. Great first time and great second visit too. It's a very busy cafe. Staff friendly, and helpful. Got that 'homemade' feel with good decent portion sizes.
