It's lovely to see an independent restaurant so busy, great food and very reasonable prices. Highly recommend the paninis! Definitely worth a trip into town just for a bit of lunch here.

Lunch for 1 !! Not a lot of seating as it's quite small, but very busy ! Nice to have an independent place rather than a chain. Staff very friendly, food great. My daughter loves the burgers here, definitely recommend eating here, they do takeout as well

Called in for a Full English Breakfast on Sat morning. Just one table left for me; there was a warm buzz of atmosphere and a good welcome. My 'strong' black coffee was one of the best I've had for a long time. Breakfast was a long time in the making, but worth the wait. Ingredients were excellent. My only crit... More

Seen the good reviews and my son raves about this place, well he's right. Popped into Lunch today for a quick bite, a busy but laid back small and inviting cafe type place... Focus is on fresh American staples, burgers, loaded fries and sandwiches. Opted for the North Carolina fries, a large basket of really good skinny fries, pulled pork,... More

After reading reviews we decided to give this place a try! What a lovely little place. We were warmly greeted as we entered and casually sat down. Very clean environment. I had a Kentucky Panini with fries and my husband has a Philly Steak Panini. Both were absolutely delicious, tasted very clean and fresh, followed by a very well made... More

The food here is fantastic value for money, it's very filling and so incredibly tasty. The service is fast and if you can get a seat it's a great place to eat. I wish they had more seats, but it's still worth getting it as a take out!

I used Lunch to deliver some corporate catering to some clients of mine as a Christmas treat to thank them for their business. The feedback I received from my clients was amazing! They all raved about the food (which I know is all freshly prepared with passion). The service to organise the deliveries was excellent too, so it was great... More

Been here many times - every time excellent food! Today I had the Philly Cheese steak panini, which I would recommend. Prices are extremely reasonable. 'Normal' sandwiches are similar to greggs prices, but much tastier.

Lunch offers quality home cooked food in a relaxed setting. We are proud to have been the first place in Colchester to offer pulled pork and its popularity keeps increasing. Such has been the success of the business we are now proud to offer gourmet burgers and have just introduced fries with our own secret recipe seasoning.
