I visited before Christmas and received a very warm welcome. Lunch was delicious, albeit expensive, though this is often typical of cafes. The staff are what makes this place special, apparently it is a family business, and I will definitely be back in the future.

My daughter wanted to try cake at Oh SO after her grandmother raved about it. We finally managed to get their in time from Fareham and find it open. It's a beautiful, glitzy interior, with the must welcoming feeling. My daughter and I loved it. Great moist cakes, and amazing hot chocolate. So in the words of a 5 year... More

Finally managed to visit this little gem in the heart of Horndean after driving past many times! Although the menu is admittedly not extensive, what is on offer is delicious and plentiful. A pot of tea for one would have been ample for at least two people. I took some cake away with me too. I was astounded by how... More

Myself and friend had two of the festive special toasted sandwiches which were absolutely delicious, my daughter had a cookie and slushy, which she really enjoyed along with some of my sandwich. The staff were great and the... More

Had a very satisfied lunch with my husband. We really enjoyed their paninis, and portions were a good size, the chocolate milkshake was delicious! Staff are very friendly too 😀

A delightful coffee/tea shop in the centre of Horndean. A warm welcome awaits you from this family run business. Delicious home made sandwiches hot or cold, a good selection of cakes, coffee and tea. The interior is spotless, and is decorated in pink and black with murals of New York decorating the walls. On a nice day you can sit... More

Personable service from friendly local staff. This is not a greasy spoon offering full breakfasts, nor is it a high-end restaurant offering silver service dinners - what it is, is a delightful coffee shop serving sandwiches, cakes, teas and coffees. We love the mis-matched china (the tea-pot for one pours far more than the 1-2 cups at most other establishments!!!)... More
