What a delight, so busy, great position, catching all the shoppers en route from car park to the shops!!!! We were staying at Premier Inn and decided to have breakfast here rather than soulless chain on offer. So glad we did.

Went here for breakfast as it was cheaper than the hotel I was staying in. Prompt service by polite staff. Had the savory muffin with scrambled egg and very thick bacon - very scrmmy. Will definitely return when next in Lincoln.

We visited for the first time today, lovely latte and toasted Lincolnshire plum loaf which was a first for us!! It was really rather yummy. Atmosphere is relaxed with background music which allows you to talk across the table with ease. Service was excellent, although it was busy we didn't feel rushed. Although next to a busy road it was... More

We had a meeting near by and got take away each lunchtime from here. It was fresh, tasty and filling. We also got one of their epic coffee and walnut cakes, not had such a nice one since my Nans!

We have eaten at this cafe on several occasions and always had high quality food at a decent price. I can recommend breakfasts, ciabattas, the omelettes and baguettes. All the cake is homemade and you get a good size piece.

This is an amazing airy spotless state-of-the-art cafe with the vibe of an age where service meant smiles and nothing being too much trouble, and everything was homemade. If you want to get the best of the old and the new at pocket money prices for breakfast, or toast and a hot drink, when over the road from a 'budget'... More
