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.

Having eaten here last Easter, we returned twice this Easter! Once for breakfast - where we enjoyed a freshly cooked English breakfast and Easter cakes, and once for lunch, where the delicious burgers were too good to resit. On both occasions the service was excellent...and prices very reasonable. No wonder this is a busy little cafe in the heart of Syston!More

Have reviewed here before but wanted to point out that the pancakes in the dessert section of the menu can be had for breakfast! It's one giant pancake rather than multiple smaller ones. I opted to add bacon and pay extra instead of having ice...cream and it worked well.More

Really busy on a Saturday morning but still really quick service. Food is fantastic, cannot complain, will be returning. They do egg and bacon muffins which aren't on the main menu but definitely recommend.

Wow! Thought we were stopping off for a quick coffee as we were just in the area. There didn't seem to be much choice on a midweek lunchtime, so we ventured into this cafe. Just off the High Street next to a Poundstore, it didn't...seem the likeliest place for a nice lunch out... I was wrong! The welcome was friendly and we were soon perusing the menu. We ordered burgers, which were delicious as well as being huge, great coffees and we couldn't resist taking home strawberry tarts for tea. Busy, friendly and good value.More

Exceptional breakfast! Everything was hot and delicious, I love that they serve hash browns which many cafes do not. Also allow swaps for items. Hot chocolate was fantastic. Will definitely return.

Disappointing. Ordered Omelette big raw chunks of onion very poor. Don’t think Omelette was cooked enough. Tinned peas. Small portion of chips not cooked enough. Coffee was nice!

I've eaten here numerous times when out for a shop in Syston. It's reliably good. Service is friendly and quick. There is a varied menu of hot and cold meals - ranging from traditional sandwiches like BLTs to lasagna. Coffee and teas are good. There's...a good selection of cold drinks as well. Desserts here are both unusual and scrumptious - they make especially creative versions of cheesecake. Cheese and sweet scones are also very nice. Prices are very reasonable. This cafe offers indoor and outdoor seating, and it has reasonable Covid safety measures in place to protect customers and staff. My lunch was 50% off because they are participating in the government's eat-out scheme at the moment.More

Delicious food, lots of space, nice interior. Staff could do with a smile on their face though, this would definitely elevate it.

Visited for a lunchtime snack. Very busy and warm welcome from team, helpfully rearranging tables for our group. Wide range of food and all we had was of very good quality and excellent value for money. A good find!
