Popped in for a chicken and bacon salad and it was beautiful, wide range of salad with homemade dressing, plenty of warm chicken and bacon making this great value for money and a most enjoyable lunch. Have visited several times since and their homemade Bakewell tarts are amazing!

Cafe on the Green is our favourite breakfast/lunch stop by far. We've been regular visitors for at least the last two years and now consider Jill and Kelly to be trusted friends. Jill and the team run a fantastically clean, friendly little cafe which is decorated in a contemporary style. Everything from the seating area to the toilets are decorated well and kept immaculately. In warm weather, you can sit outside on the pavement. The menu is varied and very good value and i have to say the salad is probably the best in the town. Most of the cakes are baked on the premises and there is a wide variety. I believe the cafe is a social enterprise: certainly i know that it is a training cafe for young adults with learning difficulties. So far as i can make out, in practice this means that the staff are friendlier and more attentive than most places you'll visit. Take the time to visit and say hello and i can guarantee you'll be back. We certainly will. Oh, and kids are very welcome.

I have eaten here several times and always had a great meal. The staff are friendly and helpful, the service is prompt.

I think the owners are brilliant in the way they support their staff - giving them this opportunity and enabling them to live more normal lives.

On a journey back home from Cornwall, we drove into Poundbury looking for somewhere to stop for lunch. Being a family with three young children (all 6 and under), we generally invade most establishments, Cafe on the Green being no exception. The staff were super friendly, attentive and the lunch was great. A welcome stop and thoroughly recommend.

We chose this cafe to stop for breakfast based on favourable comments in other Tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. We had lovely full English breakfasts served by friendly and helpful staff. We will definitely call again when we are out this way.
