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.

Called for brunch. Everything was very nice although there was a bit of a wait as they were very busy. Staff are all rather formal but are very efficient.

Came in for a quick bite, went for a cheese and onion toastie…not too bad. I would say a little expensive for what I got (toastie and Diet Coke) £7.30. Also had to ask to get the table cleaned, shouldn’t need the customer to ask...for this! All in all, nice atmosphere, slightly above average cafe.More

Just had a lovely breakfast before our journey home. Found it on Google after typing in nice breakfast. I had the smashed avacado and added bacon. My partner had the expresso breakfast. Then we shared the pancakes. Was busy in there but service was great....Great atmosphere with a range of food and drinks.More

Very good food at very reasonable prices. Service a little on the slow side and tables a bit too close together. Much better in sunny times when you can use the outside space.

Came across this amazing cafe at the end of the high street whilst trying to get our bearings. They had tables in the sun so we couldn’t resist! We chose eggs benedict and smashed avocado and poached eggs. Both were presented well and the yolks...were golden. My husband had a flat white which is always a bit hit and miss as to whether you get a latte instead, but the barista obviously knows what they are doing as it was perfect. Very popular for coffee and breakfast when we were there. Would 100% recommendMore

Having literally no where else in Taunton to sit under cover for food as indoors still closed for covid guidelines. We had no option but to visit here. A8 small tables eaxh seating two cuddled under two seperate gazebo type shelter to head off the...rain. We like others seating were unsure if it was waited service or not? No signs saying order inside or any menus in the windows to life life easier for the customer. Once I waited for my turn to be served, the lady behind the counter was quiet and not very customer friendly. However I say outdoors and there as along wait for myself and others to get their drinks. We waited for our coffee then our coffee was given to another table even though tables all had numbers on so should of been quite simple. I had to ask for our coffee. Other people were offered wrong coffee orders and on one table the quiet less friendly lady who took our order, spilt over a coffee onto an elderly lady. An absolute shambles. She did apologies for our coffee being sent to someone else and we got our coffee literally 3 mins later. The coffee was good to be fair. Just took 15mins! A lovely young lady brought out our breakfast which was lovely. She cleared the tables where she could and was a real good worker always polite with it. The cakes looked great but we decided to head off rather than stay for a other coffee there. Over all food and coffee nice but the team upfront need to up their game.More

We visited at the end of March for a takeaway. Covid precautions were in place and taken seriously. We had some flapjack and granola bars, they were incredibly delicious and we will come back soon.

Just popped in for breakfast on the day NHS track and Trace app was launched. Their QR codes prominently displayed and so much easier than having to use bespoke track and trace for every venue. I can't add any more than in the tile.

Fancy a light lunchtime snack? This is the place. Wraps of all description and huge cakes to die for. Noisy kitchen but pretty setting outside on a good day. Prices very reasonable as well.
