“The best coffee and welcome in Romsey!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

Being local to Romsey, we've tried most (if not all) of the coffee houses & cafes in-and-around the Square.

We have however found ourselves recently returning to Linekers on a more frequent basis - but also recommending to family & friends.

Positioned off the main drag, you can find them between the Nationwide & Aldi. They advertise that they serve the best coffee in Romsey and a friend of ours, who is notoriously fussy, had to agree. Their barista puts a great deal of care in ensuring that every cup is presented like it was for himself.
Its not just about the coffee though. The food, which ranges from sandwiches (both hot and cold), jackets, omelettes and full-English breakfasts is first class. It has always been delivered piping hot and with a smile from their server. The prices are just incredible value too.

If you have room for a desert, or just want a cake, their selection is wide & varied. Clearly home baked and made with love, I believe you can even buy some for your own celebration.

Sometimes we have had to wait a little while for our food but judging by how busy they can be, this is totally understandable. It is popular for a reason.

If you are in Romsey I highly recommend a visit: you won't be disappointed :-)

“Best coffee in Romsey”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

.. We go there every Saturday for lunch before we shop, as we find it’s the best coffee in Romsey or anywhere else. If you want a nice relaxing lunch in this family run restaurant it’s the place to go. All the food is reasonably priced and of good quality for around £5 and under.

“Excellent family run coffee shop.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2013

Went in recently one Saturday. Had a breakfast which was great value at only £5 ish. Staff were very friendly and welcoming would definitely go back next time I'm in Romsey.

“One off bad time?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013

Popped in on Saturday as was in Romsey doing some shopping and thought would try this place rather than the branded outlets. It took ages for the food to come and when it did the food was quite poor. Really cheap ingredients and not much off it. My wife's mushrooms were served almost raw.

The staff constantly apologized about the wait and they all seemed mega friendly. Loads of local people in there so we might have caught them on a bad day, Next time though think we might go to Costa's
