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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The drinking chocolate, although nice, was far too expensive. Will not visit there again. Off The Beaten Path is a small café with a reasonably nice atmosphere. However the prices are a little too high to make regular visits.

Called into this very nice cafe today. Very nice place, staff excellent, cleaned the table before I sat down. I chose the homemade quiche with salad and coleslaw and a latte. I was served very quickly and I have to say the quiche was the...best I've eaten in a long time. Whilst I didn't have dessert the cakes looked very tempting. If you are in Melton this is the place to visit. Definitely 5 star.More

Beyond expectation for a cafe. Greeting, attention to detail warm and welcome. Quality of produce, sausages locally sourced . Stopped for a late brunch, coffee lush ,and a nice pot of tea for the wife. Sausage and bacon roll for us both. We both needed...knife and fork, and didn’t need lunch. Don’t pass this lovely place bye.More

My wife, baby and I came for breakfast. We were met by a really friendly waitress and enjoyed the coffees and salmon bagels. The owner was really helpful as we have just moved to the area and wanted to know about the local food. We...have come again a few days later and it’s just as good. It’ll be our local from now on.More

Passed by this coffee shop on a day trip to Melton Mowbray and so glad we went inside. Coffee was gorgeous and the scone was absolutely delicious (and huge!) great value for money. Lovely staff and relaxing atmosphere too.

Happened to pass looking for a big chain coffee shop and decided to go here instead. Lovely staff and amazing cakes and food! Even brought the food and coffee out to our car so we didn’t get a ticket. Hoping to stop when we pass...back through Melton Mowbray tomorrow for more coffee and cake!More

Called in here for an early lunch. Friendly greeting as we were shown to a table and given menus. Although the cokes looked amazing we opted for a toastie and a panini. They arrived in no time and were nicely presented with a salad garnish...and a handful of crisps. If in the area again we would choose to eat here as those cakes need to be tried.More
