“Great afternoon tea for gluten free and gluten”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

We had afternoon tea for our family at Bensons. The gluten free full tea with scone, sandwiches, and cake was amazing. The tea was excellent too. My family was thrilled with their various teas and gluten scones as well. This place was wonderful!

“GREAT CAFE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

I went for breakfast in this easily overlooked cafe in a small arcade. Great service, great ingredients and at only £5 including a high quality fruit tea Benson's deserves to be better known. Could not fault it, even if the price had been more I could not fault it. Very very good.

“Good value breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

Went here for breakfast on a Sunday - and at a fiver can't really be faulted. Between us we had the bacon & eggs and the vegetarian breakfast, both with toast and tea/coffee, for a fiver each. Decent food - the eggs were lovely - service was friendly and fine (wasn't too busy when we were there). The place itself is nothing too special but I wouldn't hesitate going back there for breakfast again next time I'm in Stratford.
