Set within the Community Centre at edge of popular park, this is a convenient cafe for meeting up with friends, e.g. after a class in the Centre. Tables indoors and in small garden, shaded by parasols if required. Excellent coffee and selection of home-baking. Cheerful...staff make us feel welcome.More

Pure Ground has had a makeover - now even better with an updated selection of light lunches and delicious cakes and calming decor. The staff are very friendly and helpful and prices are reasonable. I often pop in for a coffee whilst passing and enjoy...sitting in the pretty garden, a tranquil spot on a sunny day.More

I’ve been a customer for over four years and every visit has been excellent. Good coffee, excellent value, tasty homemade cakes, tunes I’ve not heard in years, and the staff have a great sense of humour.

I have passed this place several times and not stopped before, this time I fancied a coffee and popped in to check they do takeaway. Ordered an espresso and chatted to the lady behind the counter, she was very friendly and even apologised for the...fact she couldnt heat the takeaway paper cup. The coffee was spot on with a great taste and aroma. If I have the time I will go back again and this time sit in, they had a selection of great looking snacks that I would like to try.More

I ordered breakfast. The sausages looked aneamic so I suggested that they weren't cooked properly. The rude cook / server took the breakfast and tested the temperature. He said they were ok but blamed the quality of the sausages for how they looked. Overall the...service was poor and sour faced.More

Visited for the first time today with my 2 yr old grandson. The cafe was very busy but everyone was served promptly and efficiently. The coffee was first rate and would give some specialist coffee shops a run for its money. Sandwiches were freshly made...and genourously filled. We sat in the garden along with other families with babies and young children and it was a joy to sit out in the sun with good food and drink. My grandson certainly enjoyed himself. Toilet facilities were easily accessable and all the staff in the cafe and community centre were friendly and helpful. It's worth a trip to Milton Park just to visit this cafe. Go whilst the sun is shining although it's nice inside as well.More

Visited this café this afternoon to have a coffee and buy an ice lolly for my sons. As we had our bikes I waited outside the café, just inside the park. I told my sons to go ahead as one was desperate to use the...toilet. I was absolutely appalled when they came out saying that a member of staff had said to them, "Oi, get out we're closed!" When I asked them exactly what happened another member of staff overheard our conversation. She went on to explain that they had been told by Milton Village Hall not to let anyone use the toilet after 4.30. When I stated that there was no other toilet nearby she reluctantly said that they could go round to the other door that led to the toilet. However when they did this another member of staff closed the door on them and refused to let them in!!! Absolutely disgusting behaviour towards them. My sons are 10 and 7 I know you were closing up but another couple of minutes wouldn't have hurt. And there was no need to speak to them so rudely. FUMING!!!More

Popped in to meet a friend. We received a friendly welcome. Good choice of sizes and types of coffee. Ordered a sausage bap which was tasty and very quickly served.
