This was our first visit after admiring the array cakes in the window a few times. It's a busy cafe with seating mainly upstairs. The staff were very friendly. You order from the counter, after a short wait our order arrived. I had a vegi chilli which looked really nice (see photo) and I enjoyed it very much. My wife... More

located in the centre of the town in an interesting old building. Most seating is on the first floor. Serve a wide range of snack foods such as sandwiches and wraps freshly made from the shop downstairs.

Food was nice like any cafe. Didnt get a chance to try the sweet treats however they were cheeky and tempting me! Slightly overpriced but it was okay for what you got. Maybe would come again.

This place is run by the most wonderful, friendly lady and her team. Nothing is too much trouble and eating here is a joy. There are always lots of daily specials and a large variety of salads, chutneys, breads etc. I also love the freshly squeezed juices. Not much seating downstairs and can get busy over the lunch-hour, when take-aways... More

I don't go to Shrewsbury very often but when I do, I always go to Taste ! Tasty smoothies, homemade and healthy soups. Yummy pannis's, sandwiches and salads. Great cup of Yorkshire Tea. Staff all friendly and the owner always remember me (she only sees me once a year and asks about my children ! ) She is lovely !... More
