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.

We called in for brunch. We had a couple of tasty omelettes. Plenty of fillings, nice and hot too. The coffee was of also of good quality. Great value and very friendly staff. Will definitely return when we’re next in Sunderland.

Dropped in for lunch this week and was OK. The ladies running the place were very attentive and friendly. Mrs got a panini which she said was canny, I got the steak and cheese burger but unfortunately wasn't anything out of this world at £13....Chips were tremendous. I was a bit put off about being asked to tip via card before even getting our meal.More

Hi, Popped in to have a breakfast with my daughter, too late for that, so had a lovely brunch. Really nice ladies working in there, with a lovely meal before I went to the stadium of light, as my team were playing Sunderland. Cheers

Really friendly and helpful staff, and excellent food. The lamb and mint roll was so tasty. Cakes also looked lovely, but we were full after the savoury course. We will be back.

Hidden gem in Sunderland, food was really tasty and the potions were huge for the price. The cafe is spotlessly clean and very cosy. The staff are so lovely too they came round and had a chat before the food arrived and were really great...with our little girl who was made to feel very special.More

Found this gem of a place a few years ago and if I’m in Sunderland city centre this is where I go for food. Firstly the staff are so friendly and nice. The food is home cooked and so good yum. I took my mother...and she had the quiche I opted for mince pie which was large portion and came with a drink. My mother wanted the smaller plate with her quiche. All the food was amazing especially the chips, proper chips. They also serve alcohol my mother had a Malibu and coke. It’s easy to find it’s round the corner from the bridges opposite the flannels shop. Only thing I would suggest is the option of a gravy boat instead of the gravy poured onto the meal as some people prefer to put their own gravy on or dip the chips like my daughter does but It was fine for me. I love Wendy’s place and will definitely be back 😊More
