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.

Well, it’s not often that we actually get pleasant surprises, but this certainly ranks as a great example of just such an occasion. On the way to HP world, wanted a bit of nibble and some good coffee. Google search “cafe in Watford” and initially...presented with the standard fayre of Costafortune and Nerozero, but, on scrolling down a bit (always scroll down, folks) found this gem. And a gem it is. Service, choice, quality, ambience…all right out of the top cookie jar. And the coffee…:simply excellent. Despite the name, not at all about the show, but rather all about honest quality baking and a lush experience. To paraphrase a well known Austrian dude…we’ll be back.More

I love this place and I have visited many times either as a couple, with family or with friends. The food is so tasty. Lovely menu. The tropical granola mix is divine! Poached eggs with smashed avocado on sourdough toast, yum! Food is always delivered...to the table very quickly. Just one note for improvement, the service could be a bit sharper. I highly recommend getting a window table that overlooks the bakers. Kids will love watching the bakers prep all the different pastries.More

Breakfast for Mrs and myself after the school drop off. Opens at 8am so perfect timing. Ordered poached eggs on sourdough with crispy bacon + poached eggs with avocado. Tea and coffee. The sourdough bread of course is lovely. Both dishes were well presented and...very tasty. Enjoy watching the team in the bakery working through the windows making all the sweet treats.More

Two English Breakfast Teas and Toast with butter and jam for two people cost just under £16!!!!! Two slices of Sourdough bread very slightly toasted with butter arrived on one plate. We advised we had ordered toast for two people and jam aswell. The jam...arrived, so we ate one slice each. Reminded our waitress we had ordered toast for two people. Another two slices of warm bread arrived, had to ask for butter! Charge for one slice of warm bread with jam £3.50 extra charge of £1.50 for the other slice! Absolutely disgusting. Check out the new venue round the corner …….. SOUL SURVIVOR !!!! 5-7 Greycaine Rd. Will never go to Flourish again!More

The setting is nice, spacious, clean. Service was good to start with, order taken quickly. Food order arrived very quickly. Had two poached eggs on toast, side of bacon. Would have preferred to have a slice of toast per egg, but they came on one....Was then asked if i would like butter, again, call me old fashioned, but toast should be buttered before stuff is put on it… bacon should be noted is back bacon and smoked. Which i wouldnt have ordered. So my drinks, fresh orange and a black coffee. My food arrived before my drinks, i had ate my food and still no drinks…. Had to ask where the drinks were…. Then they were put through again, and i finally got the drinks. Service slow at the till Dont know if i would return.More

Well worth diverting off my journey for. It may be in an industrial park but when you step through the door it's a big wow! To your right is an array of spectacular cakes, breads and beautiful pastries, all made on site. The smell of...good breads and coffee (and it was very good) was divine. I sat by one of the windows looking into the kitchen to watch the pastry chefs at work; fascinating to see; particularly the enormous bowl of dark, milk and white chocolate buttons, fruits and swathes of pastry being cut, a trolley of large chocolate and cream pastries passing by......heaven! A warm welcome from the staff who helped me select from an impossible choice!! Lucky lucky Watford! p.s. I parked around the corner at Bookers car park, no problem!More

Came today for the first time, The food was nice and really tasty we all enjoyed our food but my god, it’s so overpriced. Scrambled egg on toast - I slice of bread with 3 eggs was £7.00 - my husband had a cooked breakfast...which you can’t order as a meal, you have to order egg on toast and add extras so one sausage / 1 bit of bacon / 3 bits of halloumi / beans was about £18 - As I say the food is really tasty but way too expensive for what you get. We dealt with about 3 different members of staff, all were really friendly and efficient. So 2 sandwiches / 1 scrambled egg on toast / 1 full English snd 2 coffees / 1 coke / 1 milkshake was £53!!!More

We love the vegan Oreo cake-have ordered it multiple times and have never been disappointed. Even non- vegans thoroughly enjoyed it. Their sourdough is tasty albeit expensive compared with another craft bakery I go to. The vegan Biscoff cake is way to sweet. The cookies...are awful. The service is hit and miss.More

We have decided to have a bit of lunch with family, we are aware of parking issues in the area and walked. When we arrived a male staff member offered to bring us menus and disappeared, after considerable amount of time my husband decided to...go get the menus, the staff at the till didn't seem to know where they were but eventually found them. Nobody came to take our order and children were getting hungry, so I so I went to order by the till. The lovely girl suggested she comes to take order by the table but I said that's ok, let's just put it through. I'm glad I did that because it turned out someone made a mistake and there was already an open order on our table, she consulted her colleague, I thought they resolved it and the lovely young lady took my order. To avoid further hassle (by then even though place wasn't full quite a few tables were getting zero attention) I paid straight away. Before our food arrived the same male staff came to our table with a question of what we ordered, I tried to explain there was a mistake found on the till, but he clearly wasn't interested. Our food arrived but no drinks, asked again, drinks arrived but water never did. When we were about to leave the male staff member stopped my husband with the wrong bill, thankfully he got attention of the lady that took my payment. We were having a wonderful day off as a family and were in a good mood, not so good after. Not once an apology was offered. Food is still decent though. Compliments to the chef. Real shame about the culture.More
