This was our first visit for at least 5 years. The café is still just as good as we remembered it. It has a 'vintage' feel about the place that predates the current fashion for such things. The menu is displayed on several blackboards and is easily read for every seat. It is a little cramped on some tables but... More

Went on Saturday and enjoyed the experience from start to finish. The menu was varied and extensive. I had the rib eye steak cooked to perfection and great value. Four of us had the pudding sharing platter which was one of the best I've ever had. Service was excellent and friendly and we will look forward to going again. No... More

Thyme Cafe seems overpriced for a small, local cafe, however it is incredible value for money. The menu adapts according to whatever is in season - the only downside of this is that they may run out of what you want. Everything is cooked fresh, delicious, and service great. Eton mess comes highly recommended!

Dined at the Thyme Cafe on Saturday evening with my wife. Tried to book table prior to visit but was told by a very polite and friendly chap, they don't take bookings, 'Just pop in, give us your details and time you want to eat, then toddle off for a few pre- dinner drinks, your table will be ready on...

We found the Thyme Cafe by chance really whilst visiting our daughter at University of Sheffield. Close to the 'Endcliffe Village' it looked from the outside like so many other bars and cafes in the area, but once inside everything changed. It is a bit like the Tardis bigger than it looks and the friendly staff made us feel like... More
