Description: We are a grade 2 listed building therefore when you visit us please don't expect straight floors and walls!! Our seating we think is a little cosy but in the space we have and the building as it is fits perfectly! We are as modern as we think the building can take without taking too much character away. We are a little different in a very nice way. Look forward to seeing you in lounges our very lovely little coffee shop.

“Excellent Independent Coffee shop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2013

Brilliant building what we like is the quirkiness of lounges with seating in 3 different areas as well as the outside space. The coffee is great sold in 3 different sizes, homemade cakes plentiful and so tasty. They have the most amazing tea cakes. The hot Bacon and Goats cheese salad is very tasty and lots of it, in fact having been through most of the menu we haven't been able to fault the food at all. The service is always with a smile in fact we really enjoy our Saturday visits to Lounges with a read of the free newspapers.

“Quirky, brilliant coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013 via mobile

A strange mix of seating squeezed into a very old charming building. Gets very busy and quite rightly so in my opinion. Wonderful latte and the cakes not bad either. Great to see an independent coffee shop doing its own thing so well.

“Great independent cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013 via mobile

Nice to find a non-chain cafe that provides a good consistent service. All the usual extras are available - wifi and newspapers. Good selection of cakes and given the food is prepared freshly they can happily tailor paninis and sandwiches to your own taste.

“Oh lounges”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2013

The woman had seen my girlfriend and I stood there ready to order with our money out and continued to polish the coffee machine for a further five minutes. We were finally served and informed the woman we would be seated outside, she then informed us that they had closed the outside seating area (2 hours before closing time) which was slightly inconvenient as my girlfriend is a smoker but this posed no real issue. We sat down and a young girl bought our drinks over, just as we got comfortable another member of staff informed us that we couldn't sit at that table because 'it had just been wiped down' (again, 2 hours before closing time) which was ridiculous, surely a table should be wiped between each customer, not just at the end of the day. We picked up our drinks to move, only to find we had actually been barricaded in with chairs to stop anyone sitting there even though they had seen us!! We were actually laughing by this point because the service was comically bad. For the remainder of our visit, we were given filthy looks by the staff as if we had caused them great inconvenience.

“Pleasant coffee, outside seating”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2013

Not a bad place for a coffee or a sandwich. Yesterday we sat out in the courtyard which is also used by a bike shop and a couple of other businesses, it was ok as it was a warm sunny day. Pleasant enough coffee stop though. Have been several times and the male owner always seems to be under stress and never smiles, which seems to rub off on the other staff. I'll return because the coffee is better than the other venues in Lymington.
