“What you expect from a Costa - standardised product but lacking that something special.”
Reviewed 9 October 2012

Well located on the main shopping strip at Broadstone, but very busy with few spare chairs or tables. This was annoying for us but must mean they are doing something right as this is a shop that seems to be placed to appeal to the locals as opposed to us tourists. Their food and coffee was certainly passable and I can see the place as a welcome bolt hole for locals looking to escape. For us out-of-towners, the Broadstone Costa experience left us wondering what was different about this shop that we couldnt find in any other Costa Coffee anywhere else in this world. Perhaps its that (to us) monotonous consistency that's the point of this place.

“Good coffee shop”
Reviewed 30 July 2012

This recently opened Costa Coffee is situated on the main shopping area in Broadstone. it is easy to reach on foot and we were lucky to find free parking in a nearby road.

The property has been totally refurbished and offers a good choice of seating from a small bar area to tables and chairs and sofas.

You choose your food from the chiller section and they offer salads, sandwiches, paninis and toasted sandwiches. There is also a good selection of cakes and some giant bourbon biscuits.

The staff were friendly and dealt with our order efficiently.

I selected a cheese and ham toasted sandwich and a medium decaff Americano coffee and this cost £5.05 which was reasonable.

We found a table fairly easily, the place was busy but not over crowded.

My sandwich was delivered quite quickly by a nice staff member who cleared our trays away.

There was pleasant but not intrusive background music. This coffee shop is clean and modern and has a nice atmosphere.

Well worth a visit
