Owned by the Steel Family, the owners of Atkinsons Coffee a local hidden gem, limited seating inside, but given the right weather, the seat spread out over sun square, a beautiful small hidden courtyard, only accessed by small ginnels

We called in here for a coffee during a shopping trip. We had decaf lattes which were barely lukewarm and not very big. We drank them anyway but as we were leaving we mentioned that the coffee had only been warm. The response was - "that's the way we make them here and if you put hot milk in, it... More

Coffee here is always excellent, the pastries are delicious and service prompt and friendly. Sitting in the square with the best coffee in Lancaster - what's not to love? Beats Costa/Nero hands down!

My go-to coffee shop with friends or on my own. The atmosphere is so relaxed yet can be bustling as well. All drinks and fantastic and so is the food 👍🏽☕️

It happened to be Lancaster's music weekend and we sat outside the restaurant close to the stage and listened to live music whilst drinking our coffee and eating tasty cakes. It was a restful experience. I can recommend the place to anyone.

Found this gem of a café of the beaten track (just off the main shopping street) after doing a treasure hunt around Lancaster. Staff were friendly. Drinks were good and reasonably priced. Cakes looked amazing but we did indulge on this occasion. Will definitely return.

Been going since the day they opened as one of their first customers and haven't looked back. Along with their sister venue 'the hall' easily the best place for coffee in Lancaster. Great environment, with artwork & crafts from local artists, it's one of Lancaster's hidden gems. A must see for locals and visitors alike. Friendly, knowledgeable staff and great... More

I have wanted to visit the Music Room for some time, but won't be rushing back. It was ok - coffee was good but no atmosphere and staff miserable

We popped in here on a wet Saturday morning, had lovely soya latte and there was a choice of 2 gluten free cakes. Would certainly return
