“Great food but not so friendly staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2014

A lovely little tea room style cafe. Good coffee and homemade cakes. I've been three times, the first two I found the staff to be OK but the last visit they were almost rude. 20 minutes from closing and it seemed the cook couldn't be bothered with some of the items on the menu so we went without. It is a shame as it's on our doorstep but I doubt I will go back.

“Lovely café in Preston. Highly recommended.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2014

I first discovered Brambles when our usual café further down the road from Brambles was closed when it was meant to be open.
I am very pleased we tried Brambles, this is now our café of choice in Preston, and have eaten there a dozen times now.
The breakfasts are lovely and excellent value. The coffee is freshly made and always offered with a choice of hot or cold milk. The rack of toast always comes with a choice of butter and other spreads. There is a selection of daily newspapers to read.
The staff are bright, cheerful, and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. The café itself is clean and cheerful with nice décor.
Highly recommended, and always look forward to our next visit.

“Breakfast heaven!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013

We have visited Brambles on several occasions and each time the staff have been so friendly and helpful.
On our most recent visit, which was Saturday 14 December, we took our grandson who had a lovely time.
He was served with a fabulous hot chocolate, with cream, mini marshmallows and even a chocolate flake - a little boy's choccy heaven.
We both had the vegetarian lasagne which was freshly made and was delicious. On previous visits, we have had the veggie breakfast (Vegetarian Dawn) which has also been delicious.
Brambles gives great service, the lady who serves you is so friendly and has a good sense of humour.
Everything is such good value for money - we recommended it to our daughter and son-in-law and they were blown away as well.
