I've been to this place many times and called in today to get out of the rain which was horrendous. I was greeted by the lovely staff with a smile and a steaming hot chocolate. Newspapers and comfy chairs kept me in the cafe till the rain eased although the weather was a great excuse for another drink and a... More

Hi Andy, We know exactly which morning you mention, I think quite a lot of people were sheltering from the awful weather and I often joke that 'it doesn't matter what the weather is like outside, the sun is always shining inside our cafes'. It is lovely to hear that you are a regular customer and we are thrilled by... More

I popped in with my girlfriend to have a quick lunch this weekend and tried the 'cumberland sausage with Boddingtons braised onion panini' I loved it!! The service was great and the staff were all very friendly. We couldn't resist the homemade cakes we had been told about so we decided to try one and we weren't disappointed! Definitely will...

Lovely little place! Only 3 specifically breakfast options (and no Heinz ketchup!!) but they offer their full menu from opening. Friendly staff, and easy to find.

I was in Southport and just wanted a decent lunch. Queue the Trip Advisor appto the rescue! - Up popped this place and I made my way there.

Wonderful place for comfort, papers, TV, comfy chairs, cards, jewellery, but best of all - food. Deals of the Day - so different and tasty, cakes home made and absolutely delicious. Staff - can't do enough for you, lovely atmosphere. Well worth a visit!!

Hi Beverley, Well, you have pretty much covered everything - thank you so much. We do try hard to come up with something different every week and keep the patisserie counter well stocked with tempting cakes. It is hard on the other side of the counter - every time the counter door is opened there is a waft of delicious... More

Chose this place for lunch having looked at the reviews on here. Friendly helpful staff who provided us with a taster of the soup to make sure it was to our liking. We chose the soup (porcini mushroom, chestnut and thyme) and sandwich (cheese and chutney). Excellent.

Hi David, sorry, I thought I had responded to your lovely review a little while ago - must have been distracted whilst in the middle of writing. Our soups are made fresh at the London Street branch every morning and whilst we always like the sound of our combinations, we offer tasters so customers can try before they order. Glad... More

Been a few times and never fails to disappoint. Cakes home made and huge although this time we had the most enormous scones served with butter and jam. So large and fresh we didn't need any lunch! Friendly staff who bring order to your table.
