Called here on impulse after a busy morning. Although I live in Lincoln I have never really noticed it before. I only wanted a sausage bap but it was cooked to order and was very tasty. It looks a nice cafe which is independent and deserves to succeed - I suspect it has a loyal customer base and I would... More

Warm, clean, reasonably priced, friendly and most importantly not part of a multinational that avoids paying tax. Was made most welcome, will visit again.

Really friendly staff who make you feel welcome. All food is cooked by them (including the scummiest cakes) and will cater for any intolerances. Lovely coffee whether Americano or latte. They serve breakfast meals all day and have lovely toasties or you can order from the `specials' board, which changes daily. Lovely atmosphere with comfy cosy chairs at entrance or... More

We went here twice while visiting Lincoln, once for lunch and one for a mid-morning bite and drink before setting off to the castle. We sat upstairs - some of the steepest, narrow stairs around - and went into one of the rooms. There is actually a lot more room than you think from the outside. The décor and furniture... More

Nipped in before we headed back up "steep hill". Still had a selection of cakes to choose from, we had gf carrot cake, lemon meringue pie, and a banoffee cheesecake. Washed down with a pot of tea. 10/10 for the friendly service and yummy food.

Went here after another reviewer suggested this was a great place for a fry up. It was a perfectly adequate fry up, neither particularly skilfully cooked nor with particularly excellent ingredients. The sausages were not the super-cheap pink fluffy banger type but neither were they the finest that Lincolnshire has to offer. The tables are packed in very close together... More

Shellyry5, Owner at Cafe 44, responded to this review

Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your visit with us. Firstly we don't fry anything, we don't have deep fat friers or oil on the premises, apart from frying eggs. The sausages are from the local butchers 'Fosters' who provide meat to many cafes and restaurants around Lincolnshire, so they are not cheap and an excellent addition to our breakfasts.... More
