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.

Visited yesterday for all day breakfast, couldn’t finish it, it was massive! Very tasty, all cooked fresh, choice of granary or normal bread was a nice touch! Only thing o would suggest is maybe do a mini breakfast for those with lighter appetites? Place was...spotless and staff were very welcoming, will definitely return when I’m next in SheffieldMore

Superb service, great coffee, a diverse menu, and gourmet cuisine make How St the best daytime restaurant in Sheffield. Highly recommended!

Very close to the station. This cafe served the most generous breakfast ever, lots of choice, very welcoming and kind service, and good prices. What else can I say ? We would definitely go there again next time we visit Sheffield.

Absolutely spot on! We both had a large breakfast that didn’t disappoint. Staff were very welcoming and friendly. We arrived 15 mins after opening and so glad we did as it soon becomes busy. We will be back soon and would like to try the...bottomless brunch.More

We were on our way to the sration to catch the train back to London and were just going to have lunch before we left - what a find! we had delicious flat white coffee and the veg and the chorizo hash with a chunk...of bread - it was just what we needed and tasted great and a really good portion. We were served by Mariana, Stu, Gracie and Lucy and would certainly revisit. They have upstairs seating too if it looks full downstairs.More

Fantastic place for brunch, delicious food, great value and friendly staff. Also great gluten free options that, for once, are not a sad substitute for the regular choices. Will definitely be back 😀

Not been here before but wanted some brunch & the usual suspects all very busy. Staff are very friendly and seem well organised. Sat at a nice table and service was good. OH had a bacon sandwich (v good) and I had smashed avo. Only...slight criticism was that the avocado was really cold - could do with being out of the fridge, and another slice of toast would have been appreciated as the avo portion was large and had nothing left to eat it with so ended up leaving some. Coffee was really good. Would recommend and will visit again when in town and try lunch.More

There are so many places now that will Serve a full English for about £10 and they are average at best. And i live in the food vacuum known as South Lincolnshire. So at £13.50 I was expecting I was expecting something better than the...normal. We were not disappointed. We got there 15 minutes after it opened on a Sunday morning. We were told the food is cooked to order so there will be a wait time. 15 minutes later they had filled all their tables and people were being told they would have to wait for a table. So be aware that it is very popular. There is a reason for that. To be honest the wait for food was not that long, probably because we were early on a Sunday. But definitely worth a try. The food is amazing, the service was good and the venue is pleasant and central. All the food on the plate top quality stuff and the portion size was plenty good enough. We walked away "delighted" with a memorable moment of proper good food in a nice place. As i mentioned earlier there are so many places that will sting you £10 for a plate for of the cheapest products the wholesaler has to offer and a pretty dismal experience. These guys are on another level!! Totally worth the money. Totally happy customer and fantastic start to the day. I could right a review on the homemade beans alone. They were fantastic. It is great to see this place going the extra mile to set itself above the rest. Their "5" rating is earned and deserved And thankfully, not a hash-brown in sightMore
