“Always a warm welcome”
Reviewed 10 May 2013

Always a warm welcome from Racheal, Julie and their Staff in this friendly café in the centre of Stowmarket, serving breakfasts, lunches and cakes – all homemade and including a good choice of vegetarian dishes and specialist teas (and white hot chocolate!). Wherever possible, ingredients are from local producers – including the superb sausages and delicious eggs.

The seating downstairs is cosy and there is additional seating upstairs. Although baby buggies and wheelchairs etc could be tricky to move about, they are always easily accommodated by the friendly visitors this café attracts.

Well done ladies – keep up the good work!

“Nice food - needs some rearrangement of furniture!”
Reviewed 15 April 2013

Eaten here several times, with vegetarian and 'all day breakfast' friends and children and grannies. All been very happy with good quality of food, most of which appears to be freshly made (you can see cooking as you sit there) and the variety of portion sizes and options. Something for everyone.
Limited space but the area around the rather cramped till, where you order, and from door to till could be improved by getting rid of sofas and moving tables around a bit. Buggies, walking frames, baby seats etc are difficult to manoeuvre.
New decor is nice but please chuck out the dolls which add nothing! Generally this is a pleasant, warm place with good food and a variety of choices and daily specials at a variety of prices.

“Good food, shame about the service.”
Reviewed 3 April 2013

Good food, well presented. All the staff looked miserable and a bit rude so for that reason I wouldn't go back.
