“Great REAL Food”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

The Market Cafe in Leek is a real find. It has everything I look for when buying food out. It buys it's stock locally, uses fresh ingredients and cooks everything in house.
I went in for lunch and had the pea and mint soup. It was fantastic, light, fresh tasting, seasoned properly and soooo delicious. I complimented the lady at the till and she said that the peas and the mint were from her garden. You simply cannot get better than that.

“She called me Hunn !”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

After a testing cycle ride, my tired body needed a friendly place to recooperate with coffee & cake. Refreshment arrived ( Illy coffee and choc cake) accompanied by a big smile and the words , "There you go Hunn". Small gesture , big impact, fantastic. And the bill £3.80...get out of here. Rob from Chester.

“Lovely cafe great staff”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

We come here for breakfast when we visit Leek Saturday market, a great cafe with upstairs seating overlooking the market. The staff are always friendly, the meal delicious and cooked to order, the coffee fab. Well worth a visit and great value for money.

“Best little cafe”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

Very friendly staff and really good food in this well placed little cafe overlooking the market place(a window seat upstairs is really good). A nice cosy atmosphere and home made food using as much local produce as possible. Illy coffee is served here and the proprietor make the best mocha I have ever had. Much better than any of the big name branded coffee houses! You also get a loyalty card stamped for every hot drink purchased. One of my favourite places in Leek.
