Popped in after registering my father in laws death at the bank as we needed a pick me up and wish we had never bothered. Lady behind the counter at 1.45pm could not have been more disinterested if she had tried. The biscuits they give with the coffees are now so small you have to search for them in the... More

We have visited this place lots of times and it never fails to impress. The coffee and other drinks and food are always served by a very friendly and helpful staff. There are comfy chairs and they never make you feel you have been there a long time which we usually are. If you go there on your own you... More

Have never been in Beales before and I would not go back. But I saw the coffee shop and thought I would have a break. They advertised "chips" but when I ordered some I was told they didn't have any on. It was about half past 2. I settled for a cup of tea and a small cake. The place... More

Called in for cappuccino and toasted panne tone. Both lovely. Service bit disorganised. Bit of a wait for panne tone. Young man sorting a refund was obviously stressed which shouldn't be on display. Will definitely return.

While shopping in Mansfield we decided we were hungry so walked into cafe nova we hadn't been there before but decided to give it a go. The menu was extensive without being hard to manage and the cakes and assorted sandwiches looked delicious. We decided on a hot lunch and ordered the chef's special from mandy who greeted us with...

Had to wait ages to be served. One girl serving whilst could hear girls in kitchen chatting in the back. Tables dirty and not wiped clean. Food average at best !

I was sorry to read the adverse reports about this little cafe in the basement of Kendal's only department store. It really isn't that bad in my experience. They serve excellent sandwiches, with plenty of filling and a salad garnish. There's nothing wrong with the cakes either. Coffees are as in any of the chains and generally well prepared. The...
