Lovely place and friendly atmosphere. I always recommend Fresh Basil to visitors to Belper. Their award winning breakfast is a perfect way to start of a leisurely weekend a generous portion with thick cut bacon, tasty sausage, thick cut toast and of course, black pudding! Irresistible cakes counter and plenty of meats, cheeses and antipasti to choose from.

Best breakfast in Derbyshire? Check. Superb range of local cheeses? Check. Fresh cakes and beautiful coffee? Check. Whether it's just a coffee, a restorative breakfast or a lovely lunch, Fresh Basil will do the trick every time.

Great little coffee-shop and deli. There was a good range of meats and cheeses, alongside fresh savoury items and amazing looking cake.

Lovely food can be found at this deli, the food is beautiful, a place packed with amazing products and exquisite flavours. A relaxed contemporary atmosphere in what was a traditional manufacturing building sets a fantastic contrast to the high street of belpers other cafes. Be warned tho, the food is VERY SLOW at coming out. We ordered lunch and waited... More

Fresh Basil beats all the other delis in town as well as serving excellent coffees. The service is brilliant and friendly. The new 8 seater 'perching' table and stools give the place a modern look as well as the more comfortable sofas. The chairs upstairs are not very comfortable but that's a small price to pay for quality of coffee... More

I have eaten at Fresh Basil many times, and enjoyed the food, the service and the atmosphere. However they now have something that is putting me off. It may sound fussy, but it can ruin an otherwise very enjoyable experience. The cutlery. It is so cheap and nasty that it is uncomfortable to use. I kid you not after a... More
