Gutted that this pleasant and reliable café has shut down - apparently due to difficulty getting staff. Another unfortunate café casualty in Cirencester - so soon after another of our favourites, Jacks, closed in January. Such a shame.

We had a pleasant lunch at LB's. The menu is limited with either soup, quiche or sandwiches which were all ok but not anything special. There are a lot of cakes to choose from. The drinks were luke warm. Worth a try.More

Description
With a heavy heart and after a lot of soul searching, we have made the sad decision to close our doors.
Why?
At the end of the day our mission was always to provide affordable honest food ... 'Something for Everyone’.
It was becoming increasingly difficult to recruit, reward and retain our excellent staff. Cirencester also offers some unique challenges in terms of parking (for both staff and customers) and the ever-increasing number of similar businesses will inevitably see even some of the best ones close.
We would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU for all your support and friendship over the last 3½ years.
We have had great fun and we know that all our efforts to provide you with delicious homemade tasty food and cakes have always been greatly appreciated.
Our website will be active for a few more weeks, so if you want to know a little more about us and why we undertook this amazing project, please take a look www.lbsfood.co.uk
