Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Nice little cafe near town centre. Order at the counter. Service was quite prompt. We had toasties and the children had sausage, chips and baked beans.The sausages looked dry. The toasties came with small salad garnish and coleslaw. The toasties were not bad but the...coleslaw was definitely not the best I've eaten. The menu included jacket potatoes, paninis and toasties with a good range of fillings, plus sandwiches and soup. A senior citizens special was advertised available on Thursdays. There is one toilet up four steps with no baby changing and no disabled facilities. A large TV was on with no sound and the inevitable music playing over a speaker. Having said that I would go again if I was visiting Lutterworth at lunchtime.More

The place I usually go to when in Lutterworth was closed so I called into this cafe instead. Now I wish I had discovered it earlier. Being in the heart of town makes this place ideally located. It looks inviting enough from the outside but...inside is nicely presented, clean and well furnished. The menu has all you might expect and my cheese and ham toastie was very good, coming with salad and coleslaw. A nice point was when I asked for the WiFi code. Rather than getting pointed towards a notice on the counter as usual I was given a giant clothes peg holding a note with the password on it. Small thing, but a nice touch.More

Visited for coffee & cake. A light and airy cafe, bustling on a Thursday afternoon. The prices are very reasonable, mains are £8, sandwiches, baguettes etc around £5. We had a cappuccino and cake for two, £13. Service was a bit slow but they did...apologise as it was busy. They are licensed too and drink prices seem reasonable too.More

A number of size options for a big breakfast price up to £12 (has long large sausages) as well as other breakfast alternatives available. Open throughout the day so other foods on the menu. Dog and child friendly-high chairs available. Spacious so plenty of room,...and also clean. Its a central location in Lutterworth town, close to car parks. A recomended visit.More

Nice place, great selection of food, breakfasts looked amazing. Step in was a struggle for 85 year old in-law, who needs a walking frame. Staff were ok, food good.

We have met up with a friend here a few times over the last couple of months for Brunch. During that time the place has changed hands but the new owners have maintained the same high standards as the previous ones. Great food, great coffee,...clean, spacious and warm. We will be back.More

Visited Karters in August this year and saw a latte on a table as I approached to place our order. I asked if I could have a latte like his and was told that it was messy because it had spilled over by accident. I...said it looked great and they should sell it as a 'Messy Latte'. Food was very good, staff were very friendly and welcoming and the Messy Latte is a must! Highly recommended.More

Visiting Lutterworth today for the first time, we were unsure about where to have lunch. Having considered a couple of places, Karter’s Cafe stood out as lively, vibrant and clean. Great menus with a good range of food and drinks being available at very reasonable...prices, we could chose a hot snack easily. Good signage led us to the counter, order placed, tempting cakes in view. Brilliant cheerful chap in charge - with oceans of patience with indecisive customers - thank you. Three plates of poached eggs with tea and coffee came perfectly cooked, and quite quickly. Hugely recommended, lunchtime does appear to become afternoon tea time around 2.30. Time your visit as it becomes very busy around 2pm. Popular with people of all ages. We hope to visit Lutterworth again in 2023 for another exhibition nearby, giving us another opportunity to visit Karter’s Cafe again. Thank you for a great lunch!More

Travelling down the M1 rather than stopping at the services we pulled off to Lutterworth (about a mile). Lovely little market town, ample parking and a passerby recommended Karter’s Coffee Shop. Was everything you wanted a local, independent coffee shop to be. Friendly staff, great...coffee, yummy elevenses.More

As others have said - so much better than stopping at services if travelling up (or down) the M1. Great sandwich, dog friendly & gluten free options. Friendly service too. Parking nearby.

Heading along the motorway, we always like to use local independent places rather than motorway services, so dropped in here as we had used it before and only 5 mins from the M1. Walked in and found a table, it still had the bustling atmosphere...to say it was a Monday. We all chose and placed the order with a lovely lady at the till, specifically asking for a pot of decaf tea and a pot of ‘full fat’ tea. The waitress who arrived with our drinks brought a tea bag in each cup and one tea point of hot water, when we explained we wanted pots of tea, she just rolled her eyes and shook her head before storming off to get another tea pot. When she came back, she seemed to have sorted the attitude out. This was a real shame as the food was excellent as was the initial welcome.More

Our grandson took us here while four of us were visiting the area and we were all in need of refreshments. We were very impressed with the large selection of excellent home made cakes etc. and our party chose a fruit scone with ham and...cream and also the coffee and walnut sponge. The texture and flavour were first class and we all enjoyed the drinks provided.More
