“Hidden gem! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

Been here twice now, so far only had the breakfast (both times) cannot fault it, great value and a lovely looking place too with nice friendly staff. I went with a friend who also enjoyed it, were both chefs and own our own restaurant so can be quite critical but I'd definitely recommend giving this place a try. We'll definitely be back.

“Absolutely fantastic place to eat 100% satisfaction guarantee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2014 via mobile

My husband and I came across this cafe by accident after finding a clock shop closed. What an absolutely good find. Every member of this very well run place were exceptionally well mannered and gave every person great respect. The gentleman got my coffee right first time and that is a rare for that to happen as I am quite awkward with coffee. Our full English breakfasts were exceptional too, the eggs were exactly as I asked them to be done. Words cannot express how these people make a difference to Barnsley, people matter here and the food is exceptional. Next time we visit Yorkshire we are definitely heading straight there, nowhere compares to this place. Well done to you all on making your establishment a wonderful place to visit. ..............exceptional.........see you soon. Hopefully back in Yorkshire next week

“Surprise cafe in Barnsley”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2014

A pleasant surprise too. I discovered this cafe today at what I thought might be a bad time for lunch (2:00 pm) a bit late I thought. No problem whatsoever. Pleasant staff, great atmosphere, good food at a great price. Will definitely go back. A bit uncertain trying somewhere new (female eating alone) but absolutely no need to have any concerns. They've even got wifi!

“Top Top Cafe in Barnsley”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2014 via mobile

Discovered this cafe a few months ago, and are now regular visitors on a Saturday lunchtime... This cafe is a real gem, the staff are brilliant, friendly, attentive and very good at what they do. The cafe offers traditional, we'll cooked homemade food at a very good price. Homemade soup is fantastic, breakfasts vey good and the homemade cakes are sublime.... Always a pleasure to visit Cafe Ruelle
