“Great sandwich shop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2013

We were a bit peckish, so dropped in for a take-out. There was only one on display, but within minutes 2 more were made fresh, one on white, one on granary and that did us until the evening meal later. Good prices too!

“Disgusting Breakfast, Terrible Value”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013

We went on a Sunday morning and had two veggies breakfasts, which I am usually use to having a selection of things (such as mushrooms and veggie sausages) however this was literally half a fried tasteless tomato, two pieces of toast and the WORST scrambled egg I have ever tasted, it looked like powder and tasted like.. well powder. Two fizzy cans were extortionate prices especially as we had to ask for glasses and ice and had to wait for them for 10 minutes in to our breakfast. The staff were quite nice but were painstakingly slow and didn't seem bothered. I wish we went anywhere else as we're not from Buxton and only had a few hours left. The place looks like its a nice place to eat from the outside, how deceptive...

“Dont be fooled by first appearances”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013

Beautiful food well served and lots of it! The staff may struggle to clear tables in time for next customer but this is because the turnover there is so hectic due to the wonderful food and warm and friendly staff. We travel over from Mansfield to enjoy at day at lovely Buxton at every opportunity and always make time for lunch at this smashing little cafe and then are always tempted to take away some delicious cakes baked in store for our tea! The staff here go the extra mile and my lovely smiley waitress always finds me a mug as she knows I struggle to hold a cup. Cant think of a single negative other than the toilet is upstairs. This cafe is well worth a visit, everything is super fresh and cooked to perfection. Be prepared to blow your diet though as the selection of cakes and pastries available to take away are sinfully divine! See you soon girls and I am already drooling at the prospect of a delicious cheese salad with all the lovely fruits and tastes.

“good for take-out, dont sit in”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013

We stopped here for a quick lunch. The cafe is very tired and dated, tables dirty etc. The sit-in menu is a little pricey, we had the chicken and pesto panini at some £5.50 to share and 2 cokes. My glass was filthy and while the panini was nice and had a side salad, it also had about 3 crisps on the side too! The service was very slow and was not with a smile. So much more could be done with a little cafe in Buxton and we joked no wonder the nearby costa and nero were full. I would not eat here again, ok for cakes and pies to take out. Plenty of nicer tea rooms in Buxton im sure.

“Great food, lovely staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2013

Myself and my husband visited this cafe today, we only went in for tea and cake but ended up having lunch too, theres so much choice on the menu. Our food and drinks were excellent and the staff were great, fast friendly service. We always try to support local businesses and im definatly glad we did this time, shall return next time we are in buxton.
