Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Been meaning to come here for ages for personal reasons mainly. Anyway we popped in after I ran the Nottingham 10K and I ate what was probably the best Full English I have had in ages. Probably the best in the City Centre. The service...was friendly and welcoming, the pricing wasn't too bad and place was light and colourful. The full english hit the spot. If I was going to be super picky, I would say it needed more mushrooms but hey! Absolutely fantastic!More

Stumbled across this place whilst shopping with my mum and was over the moon to find an amazing sober space!! Super warm and friendly, the food was amazing and presented beautifully. We both had hot chocolate which was delicious. It’s so important to have sober...venues for people in recovery. Well done!More

We had a wonderful breakfast this morning. We had to wait a few minutes for a table as it was super busy. Menu great! They had the two things I wanted. Chai Latte and Vegan breakfast. My husband ordered a full English. You order at...the Till and while I waited I eyed the wide variety of homemade cakes. They looked incredible so I added a couple of Bakewell slices to my order to take away! Our table was cleaned and our hot drinks arrived quickly. Breakfast took a little while to arrive. We weren’t in a hurry so we sat back and enjoyed the busy atmosphere. It’s a really light and airy big space and tables well spread out so very comfortable. Our breakfasts arrived on large white plates. We were both very happy with our food. Hot and well cooked. The vegan breakfast included spinach and mushrooms. Seriously good! I was saying to my husband this is a good 9/10 breakfast and I’m going to give them a review. We then spoke to the waitress who explained the ethos of the cafe. She had been homeless and an alcoholic. The cafe gave her and every single person in the cafe training and employment. The service was faultless. Everything is clean and comfortable, staff friendly and efficient, and made us really happy.More

I stumbled on this gem by accident. Very cozy atmosphere. The staff were very friendly. As a muslim, I enjoyed the alcohol free concept. Many vegetarian and vegan options. I had the vegetarian English breakfast which was delicious. The coffee was amazing.

Great atmosphere, excellent service on a busy Christmas Market day. Can't drink alcohol, really appreciated having a wide range of alcohol free options. Such a nice surprise. Moscow Mule and a vegetarian full English, delicious.
