“Excellent food, friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

This establishment has quickly become my favourite place in Bury St Edmunds to have lunch. Excellent food, very nicely presented along with superb coffee, what more could you ask? Oh yes how about friendly staff and pleasant surroundings? RRG has all of these. Much better than all the chain restaurants in the town, this is well worth a visit.

I recently had a breakfast meeting at Really Rather Good, sitting outside in the sunshine overlooking Angel Hill, enjoying a really tasty coffee and delicious eggs and bacon.

“My favorite coffee place ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

Every morning that I don't have to be in to work at the normal time, I come here for a coffee. I brought my in-laws here, and they went back every day of their stay! My sister said it was the best latte she had ever had (and she's had a few...). The view of the Abbey Gate and Cathedral is great. Location on Abbeygate street on Angel Hill is always hopping. I find it to be, well, Really Rather Good!

Avoid the numerous national chains in Bury St Edmunds and head to RRG for a really very good coffee. Wonderful bakewell tart too...

“At last somewhere to buy a decent coffee!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

We live in Australia and both Australia and NZ have wonderful coffee with expert baristas. We also had a house in Italy for ten years and of course the coffee is wonderful there too. We despair usually of finding decent coffee in England but we noticed this new addition to Bury since we were last here and also the Trip Advisor notice in the window. We enjoyed two flat whites (as in Australasia) which were excellent and bought two take-away sandwiches for lunch. They were delicious and fresh, made with granary bread and beautifully moist. Mine was goat's cheese with onion marmalade and salad and my husband's home-cooked ham with grain mustard and salad. This is a really good place to go to in Bury St Edmunds and also the staff were very pleasant. We will definitely come again! Just a few doors from The Angel Hotel it is very central and also opposite the beautiful gardens which you can wander around.

Our son has an Australian girlfriend, so we have learnt that coffee is taken very seriously in Australia/NZ (we even keep some honey as we have Australian customers who like it with their tea). I must admit Flat Whites are my favourite and are generally a good indication of the quality of the coffee bean. The food is all freshly made which allows for customers to tailor make their sandwich, we are glad you enjoyed the offering. We look forward to seeing you in the future.
