Review of The Snow Goose

The Snow Goose
Ranked #6 of 23 Coffee & Tea in Sunderland
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: British
Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 January 2013

I always liked the Snow goose, but felt it was so small it was claustrophobic. I was therefore delighted when it was refurbished and extended. It is really lovely, the decor is tasteful with comfortable seating. The staff are always friendly, service is good too. The menu is varied and tasty, not a bad price either. We often pop in for coffee and cake. There is definately a ladies that lunch vibe, along with senior citizens. I would recommend to anyone who likes nice surroundings and quality food. Although I do appreciate the hard work the staff do, I have to say I think they miss a trick by closing at 4pm on a Saturday.

Lets face it - this isnt exactly in a main location, so anyone visiting this establishment has clearly travelled here. Arrived 15.40 pm Saturday afternoon and took a seat with my very elderly companion
The waitress arrived at the table and when we went to place our order we were told they werent taking food orders as the kitchen was closed. So why was the door open? Why were we allowed to take a seat? A cafe not serving food! Whatever happened to the 'Customer is King'

Been a while since i had been here, and was surprised how much it had expanded and how lovely it looked! The place was full and had a really good atmosphere! Went with a friend and we both had a hot drink and a toasted cheese scone! We both really enjoyed it. The service was excellent and friendly. Definitely be visiting more often!

The Snow Goose is a tea/coffee shop which overlooks the popular Sunderland Marina within walking distance of The National Glass Centre. It has recently been refurbished and extended to include an outdoor patio area overlooking the Marina which can be a sun trap on the right day. I have been three times in the last month and the palce is always full. A combination of good food at the right price in the right location. A popular place for 'ladies what lunch'. Its worth a visit.

What more to spend a lovely crisp sunny morn than sitting at the Marina, watching the boats and enjoying a pot of coffee and ham and cheese toastie? Service excellent, food excellent and surroundings simply wonderful. The inside of the cafe is quite large (you wouldn't think it from looking outside). Clean and tidy and the toilets are immaculate. Well worth a visit.
