I visit here regularly and am always happy with the food. Today we had milkshakes and American style pancakes which were delicious. Coffee is always good too. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend.

We always look for an independent cafe for a coffee, come across this little gem. The coffee was good and also a good toasted teacake, it was too early to eat more but the menu looked good and a reasonable price too. Clean and tidy...a good find.More

Amazed to find a coffee shop open at 1900 on a Friday night. A welcome relief to be honest. The two ladies working were kind, helpful and patient. The coffee was very nice and the homemade cakes delicious. Thank you

Pretty average all around. Staff functional if a little brusque. Perplexed by the 5 star rating. Looking for other places for breakfast.

Unexpected rain put an early end to the days exploring and so comfort was sought with tea and cake in a deserted and still Chard. Luckily we spotted the cafe was open and with only one table spare (due to the tightly observed Covid restrictions)...we were most fortunate. Delicious tea and cakes followed and we counted ourselves blessed to find the venue open and serving such a wonderful variety of cakes and teas.More

Very friendly & welcoming staff, positively engaged with making sure customers are safe with Covid QR code scan on entrance and thorough cleaning of tables & seats that we witnessed when visiting. Its great to support an independent, especially with a Costa Coffee camped virtually...on their doorstep (I wonder who arrived first?!). Our only criticism is the interior decor - its a bit of a muddle, dated in parts and not conducive to the warmth the staff make you feel here. Desperately needs a revamp in our view.More

Called in today for coffees and the best ever cherry shortbreads. Excellent Covid 19 precautions and we felt totally safe. Good to visit a small independent cafe and support them in these difficult times.

Polite greeter at door managing the customers for available tables/ take-aways. Less tables than normal due to Covid, but still a nice atmosphere. Now making more use of upstairs seating, rather than downstairs which seems mostly set out for orders/ payments. Pleasant room with comfy...seating, good service and great coffee. A relaxed place to chill out! One of the best places for miles around.More

The restaurant is amazing. It is by far the highlight of my 10 days visit to Istanbul. The food here is exquisite with a breathtaking balcony view only to make sure you have the right appetite for the very generous quantities of food. It may...be relatively on the more expensive half of restaurants here but it’s worth the investment. Generally if you’re ever here, I recommend giving it a try and meet the friendly staff and you’ll be super lucky if you have Oktay serve your table.More

Hi Nermeen, I wish we could take the credit for this lovely review but unfortunately you have accidentally selected the wrong location as we are based in the South West of England, UK. Kind regards, #teameleos 😊 🌈
