“Lovely quirky cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

My hubby and I visited this cafe for the first time today,we were feeling weary and in need of a drink and cake. So glad we popped in, we had a pot of tea which was best cuppa I've had in a cafe in along time,loved the tea cosy (nice touch) my hubby had a coffee which he said was very nice and we shared a slice of delicious Victoria Sponge Sandwich. We feel strongly about supporting local businesses and this cafe deserves to do well.
It's quirky and has some comfy sofas to sit on ,love the decor and service was friendly and prompt service and very reasonable prices.
We look forward to returning for breakfast in a couple of weeks.
This will be a cafe we will use regularly when we come in Leicester and will definitely recommend to others.

“Great coffee house”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014

We go 2-3 times a month when we are in town. A lovely place to rest your feet or just relax offering excellent value for money. We had a pot of green tea, pot of coffee and slice of cake nd bill came to £4.50. It is a family run business so great service as well. There are magazines you can read there, it is the kind of place you could bring your book/newspaper and take as long as you want.There are comfy couches as well :-).

They do gluten free carrot cake, which is delicious. The other cakes are very good too. Not sampled the lunch menu, but have been told the food is lovely as well.

Definitely worth a visit :-)

“Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

The best indie coffee shop in Leicester. Convenient and friendly. Go there, try it. And try the pinball (hence the name)!

“Great alternative to hotel breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

Went searching for this as result of TI reviews as alternative to the same holetl buffet two days running. Pleased we did. Highly recommended simple food at great value. Friendly service and obvious community hub. Had problems finding since not on Market Place itself but in a road off to side. Every town needs a place like this.
