“Independent, welcoming, knowledgeable and delightful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

We had some coffee and a hot chocolate between us, and the gentlemen was happy to explain the various types of coffee blend on offer. We managed a cake each, and went to the rear of the building, picking up some reading material while we waited - not for long - for our selections to be brought to us. The coffee, hot chocolate and cakes were thoroughly enjoyed. While we were the last customers, there seemed to be no pressure to leave as closing time approached.

“Only coffee in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

These people know how to make coffee so if you find yourself in Dorchester (or hell, just anywhere in Dorset for that matter) go here -- don't bother testing anywhere else. They will exhaust you (if it's early in the morning and it's your first desperately needed cup) with their chat about 'don't add sugar till you've tasted it' speech (that nearly elicited my 'don't talk to me until I've drunk this' speech) -- but yes, it does taste just lovely w/o sugar. Oh, and the sandwich wasn't half bad either.

“Go and see for yourself!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

A fantastic little Dorchester treat, independently run. If you want a great cup of coffee in a wonderful, comfortable atmosphere come here. Chain store coffee will never hit the spot again! It is ideally located near top ‘o’ town roundabout. They also allow dogs (the owner may have some dog treats from them) and hosts a craft group on a Wednesday. If you live in Dorchester or are just visiting please treat yourself and grab a coffee. Also the brownie with raspberries is divine, but to be honest you can go wrong with any of the wonderful treats and goodies on offer!

“Best coffee for miles around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

Cant remember life before Toby! Great coffee, really really great coffee. Always great banter too. More like meeting friends than 'just' getting a coffee. Dogs welcome. Nice back room if you want peace. Do wonderful food too.
