Customer service is non existent. Staff were extremely rude, customers were ignored at the till whilst staff chatted amongst themselves. The food looked ok but didn't meet expectations. It's labelled as freshly prepared but didn't taste it. One to avoid, use the nearby Costa's or Muffin Break instead.

We always stop here after shopping to have a cappuccino and a muffin. The kids have the kids hot chocolate with a cake. The blueberry muffin is delicious - so light and fluffy

I was served by a girl called Laura she was friendly and suggested a lovely gingerbread man muffin with my coffee. It was lovely and the coffee was spot on not to much foam just enough. Tables were clean and the restaurant was warm as it was a very cold day. I have been to BB's before at the meadows... More

If I visit The Meadows I call in here for a coffee. Lovely staff and the Muffins are good too. They are always very kind and helpful to wheelchair users. Very clean toilets and pleasant decor. Seating inside and out.

Very chatty and friendly staff, along with a good selection of food and drink, which if you hadn't guessed, is better than muffin breaks, which is just a bit further down the same shopping area!
