Nice fruit tea and coffee. Cake but couldn’t have sandwiches as arrive just before 3pm and they had stopped serving. Very apologetic. Not a posh place but adequate and quiet.

Called in here after a tour of the Cathedral Tower. Ordered a soya latte. Was pleasantly surprised to see soya milk available. Didn’t see any vegan options but I think they may be able to make something available.

Our family loves visiting this wonderful cafe. Located across the road from Derby’s Cathedral, the cafe is light, airy, with plenty of room to sit comfortably. It was nice on such a hot day to sit next to an open sash window, providing welcome ventilation....More
