Decided to give Cafe Nero another go after quite a few years of avoiding it, and hate to say it's not got any better, if anything do they really understand about making coffee. Ordered a latte and just found it really hot and bitter, so took it back to the counter and said, Sorry cannot drink this as its too... More

Popped in for a cup of tea with a pile of magazines to read. Very busy but able to find a comfy seat to curl up in for a couple of hours. Despite the fact I only had one drink I wasn't disturbed by the staff trying to move me along. Reasonable prices. Very busy little place.

I visited here one evening in December with friends. We struggled to find somewhere to sit as nearly all the tables had not been cleared. 2 staff were serving so I joined the queue which was not too long. 1 member of staff then went to clear all the tables leaving a trainee to serve.

Cafe Nero coffee is universally good, with the usual cakes and snacks. It is always crowded as it is one of only three coffee shops in the Castlepoint mall, but is quite small so often difficult to get a table at peak times.

Coffees ordered, we enquired about their sandwich selection and were amazed to hear that they had sold out! How can a café run out of... More

This chain/franchise coffe bar has been part of Castlepoint since it first opened. I have been here more times than I can possibly ever remember!!!! What makes me go back agai & again is the good coffee & the friendly staff. It is always busy,but remains my coffee choice when shopping at Castlepoint.

I like all Caffe Neros (Neroes?) but this one really goes the extra mile. Can't recommend it enough.

Hot chocolate was so sweet it was undrinkable... just far too much sugar - almost like syrup.Castlepoint is short on cafes and restaurants so there is not a lot of choice.
