“Help needed”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

I love popping in to the Lime Tree for a coffee. It is always busy and has a lovely atmosphere, On Friday it was exceptionally busy and the lovely waitress, bless her, was doing her best. It would makes sense to provide assistance during busy times. The waitress was extremely professional and polite despite the lack of staff at the front of the shop. Improve this and get a better score next time.

“Appalling service”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

The service at The Lime Tree is usually pretty slow although the coffee is good. However, today the service was at a different level. I was halfway through my order for some cheese with the lady serving me about to cut some cheese, when someone came in whom she knew and without saying anything to me such as do you mind, she proceeded to take his order and take it to the kitchen! She then returned and again, did not say sorry and obviously thought this was very acceptable to interrupt serving one customer for another.
There are 4 coffee shops in Thames Ditton and I really think the Lime Tree has to up their standard.

“Friendly little place with great coffee.”
Reviewed 8 November 2013

The shop is small and around school run times it gets busy with local Mums dropping in for respite. The coffee is very very good and available to take out, as well as drink in at scrubbed wood tables. There are yummy cakes and imaginative sandwiches of the interesting cheese, basil and pesto sort. Children are welcomed and may be very happy with a rainbow cookie. For something more substatial there is homemade soup.

That's not all, there is a deli counter to pick up something for supper and an array of good chutneys, pestos biscuits and so on.

Recommended for a stop off in this pretty little village

“Lovely waitress made my day”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

I went in on a Tuesday and had a delightful visit, there was a lovely dark haired waitress with a lovely smile .She made me feel very welcome and the coffee was amazing. Today the lady wasn't there who is quite miserable and her husband who is equally as bad. If visiting you must get a sandwich, super high quality made with extra care by some lovely ladies. A Must visit in Thames Ditton.

“Good quality food.”
Reviewed 31 May 2013

My wife and I had a light lunch here today. The service was polite and helpful. The range of food was very select and clearly of excellent quality. We each had a baguette with mozzarella and parma ham which was served on a wooden platter with soft drinks. Great ginger beer. We followed this with excellent coffee and some delicious cakes. The place is spotless, the atmosphere friendly and the food excellent.
