So I visited this cafe after seeing beautiful pictures on Instagram and reading they do gluten & dairy free options . I ordered a meal off the lunch menu with a V (vegan ) at the side knowing 100 % this should be dairy free, I also asked for the bread to be GF & told the waitress before ordering I was DF&GF. When it arrived the butter I got with my bread looked very much like full butter , so I asked and indeed it was cows milk butter, when I asked to swap this to vegan butter thinking it was a mistake, I was told they don’t serve dairy free butter (none In the cafe) ? So how can anything with toast be classed as vegan , how do you make your products like potato salad /cakes that are labelled vegan ect without having vegan butter on the premises? I am pretty confident a lot of vegans will have had animal products here. Also is the GF bread toasted separately to gluten bread ? I’m not normally one to be to fussed however at 27 weeks pregnant my allergies & intolerance need to be taken very seriously . I was offered peanut butter in replacement for cows butter (I’m pregnant & peanut butter with eggs & beans ). My mum had a bagel & she eats everything and anything but she couldn’t even get the knife through this bagel. I suppose you just put trust into restaurants and cafes that they are honest with their menus . I was very ill after eating here, I am presuming butter must have been used in my meal or some form of milk as it’s the only thing that makes me ill in the way that I was in such a short space of time after eating it .all I can advice Is that your chef is educated on the serious impact allergies and intolerance on pregnant woman or any member of the public . It’s a shame really as it’s situated in a lovely place and describes itself as offering DF /GF. the cakes look delicious if you can eat them . Just think again if you are vegan , intolerant or allergic to anything. They did apologise for the bagel & knocked it off the bill.

Lovely little coffee shop at Kelham Island, does breakfast, brunch, coffee & cakes. The coffee was good, the food I thought was expensive for what it was but overall a good atmosphere, good coffee and friendly staff.

Only had a coffee here but it was excellent (and I've had a lot of coffee!).

Food looked good but not cheap

This is a place to avoid if you’re on a diet as the cakes are just too good to resist! The savoury food is also delicious.

great little sunday morning find. full english breakfast is just right, be prepared to wait as its busy (which is a good thing) but well worth it. best to visit earlier than later as it fills up quick. pity its not a bit bigger cos it gets a little cramped but nice atmosphere for it.
