Reading the reviews, I can understand why some people feel like the atmosphere is a bit off in here. Personally, I feel like this is nothing to do with the establishment itself, but rather the regular crowd that it attracts. If you are not local to the area, the main customer base can seem a bit pretentious. Whilst ordering/waiting for... More

I visited with a friend for lunch. Light and airy dining area with shelves packed full of interesting groceries. I had crushed avocado on toast. It was the tastiest avocado I have had since living in Queensland, Australia. Light creamy with a slight kick from the peppercorns. There is also a selection of cheeses, lots of salads and soup of...

Hello Firstly I'd like to thank you for taking the time to review our little cafe/deli. All feedback is important to us, as this is how we improve. You didn't receive your refund for the extra crumpets made? I'm so very sorry to hear of this. A refund was organised and was supposed to be given to you, I apologise.... More

I have been twice and each time has been a wonderful experience. Impeccable cafe with lovely ambience, friendly and helpful service and of course great food! Had the avocado on sourdough topped with egg on my last visit and it was fabulous. Great deli in the cafe with great selection of local produce along with other quality ingredients. Highly recommended

I had a salad from here a month ago (first time I'd eaten there) and I've just started to crave it again.. I cant stop thinking about it!! Wish I'd taken a photo, it was beautiful, a really good portion size and there was so much flavour going on. Making another visit again soon. Brilliant food and coffee and delightful... More

Cute little cafe. I had the tumeric and honey tea which was delicious! It does get quite busy in there but when you sit down you don't feel rushed. Would visit again.

First time visiting Penylan Pantry, went for a breakfast catch up with my lovely friend especially after hearing good things about the place. Walked into the small cafe, without anyone acknowledging us. There were no tables at the front of the shop, so walked further into the shop to find a small room where the kitchen is. 1 table available,... More

home made food. Great for vegetarians and meat eaters. Lovely varied and unique menu. Loved it. I've been several times and always have had a fab lunch. If I lived nearer I'd definitely go more often. They also sell lovely bits and bobs of food.

I have had breakfast, lunch and coffee/cakes here and have been impressed on every occasion. The service is great. You will get freshly made homemade food and snacks and can cater for lots of different types of food requirements. There is also a good selection of deli type goods - expensive yet quality.

My wife is a regular here, like multiple times a month and I had yet to attend. Queue, a morning without the children so we turned up for brunch at approximately 10am. It's a small area to eat but light and airy. If you want to come in a group, I suggest you arrive V early! We enjoyed an orange... More
