“More coffee”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

Had yet another great coffee here today. £2.50 a cup, but delicious. Cleanest cafe Ive been in for a while too, and they proudly display their "5" hygiene rating on the door. I used to think this was Illy coffee, but I was informed today that they use Illy only for their de-Caff. They use their own Italian hoend for regular coffees. So we bought a bag to take home (£6 a use bl250g bag). Staff are always excellent there, friendly, and the Barista is very skilled.

Good selection of cakes, fresh pizza, and great coffee. Selection of newspapers and friendly staff, what else would you want?

“Good Coffee & Cakes”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

Went for a light lunch and had a slightly disappointing focaccia made from ham, mozzarella and tomato which was bland with little flavour. It was not expensive but other dishes such as lasagne looked tastier

The coffee was very good as was the coffee and walnut cake, and I would definitely return for these

“The best coffee you will find in Ipswich!”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

My family leave in Ipswich, whenever I visit I always have coffee at Basso! The coffee is always excellent, perfect temperature, great texture and a really well balanced taste. The staff are great, the main guy really knows his stuff and is always very welcoming. I have eaten here a few times, their cakes and and various baked goods are delicious and there simple lunch menu is tasty. The location is just off the main shopping street which means it is normally a more tranquil and never super busy like a Starbucks.
