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. What struck me about the place was just how friendly the people were. It is quite smart too and I ordered some lovely roast beef sandwiches and a salad, which was swiftly... More

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.

I only discovered this little gem whilst visiting estate agents looking for a commercial property.' It is literally around the corner from the sister restaurant in London Street Southport.
