“Good for takeaway, not for staying in”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Went here last week and agree with all the reviews saying they serve good coffee and the staff were very friendly and welcoming.

My main issue is that the coffee shop itself is quite small with no tables for people in larger groups than 2. Additionally, the small space means when the coffee machine is boiling you cannot hear each other speak.

Worth it if you're looking for coffee to go, but if you're looking for someone to sit in then Workhouse is better.

“Great little independent coffee house”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

Came across this wonderful little coffee house yesterday. The staff (well just one gentleman and didn't get his name) was so friendly, polite and accommodating. The café is very clean, smart, and a pleasure to have a nice cup of English Tea in (sorry, don't drink coffee). Will definitely be visiting again soon, especially for the choc chip shortbread!

“Coffee to die for”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

Amazing coffee from the most stunning contraptions i've ever seen for making coffee. The Batista put the cherry on the cake with a stunning piece of latte art and it went down a treat with my breakfast babel which two describe in 3 words or less was.. tasty tasty tasty,

The shop is classic and well thought out in its presentation, the staff were ward and friendly. If you're fed up of regurgitated coffee by corporations that count pennies and sacrifice quality and want proper coffee with no compromise on taste.. Lincoln Coffee House ! make the trip

“A chic niche in town”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

A fantastic place to stop and have a coffee (and a bagel) - first class quality and taste!
Staff are very friendly, the interior is modern and cosy, cleverly complemented by a large wall mirror. Perfect location in the town centre.

“Best Fresh Salads and Great Coffee!”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

I am absolutely in love with the salads they do here. They are so fresh, I could actually be eating them in a piazza in Italy, (if I wasn't back at my desk at work of course ;)

I particularly love the brie and the feta salads!

The coffee is much nicer than more well known coffee houses. I would highly recommend a visit!

The service is really friendly and they always greet you with a smile. :)
