Coffee was average at best if honest. Food was okay but quite expensive for what it is. Atmosphere was good but staff looked disinterested

Happy to go back for another break. Relaxing music, pleasant service , spotless in every corner and the smooth smell of coffee playing in the background . A place for friends to gather. (20/11/16)

Went to Chester on Saturday and was in need of a good coffee! Found Cinderbox on my travels and can't fault anything! Max, Liam and Nicole were all fantastic, brilliant coffee and great hospitality. Will definitely come again!

Visited and reviewed here before and it really is my fave Chester coffee shop. Popped in today (Sunday) and was surprised how quiet it was at the height of lunchtime. Even so I enjoyed a cheese and chutney pannini and a coffee. Coffee is really great here one of the best I've had anywhere. Nice staff nice atmosphere. Instantly working... More

Sat outside with my friend ... Ordered an Americano with milk on the side, a flat white, a Danish and a bacon sandwich. One coffee arrived with no milk. Next coffee arrived five minutes later. Danish had been heated up and had tissue paper stuck to the bottom ( that's because the cold Danish I swapped it for was stale!)... More

Me and my partner came here for a drink and some cake. I had a cup of tea and a piece of Victoria sponge cake. My partner had a hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows and a carrot cake. Total bill was £10. Great little coffee shop and good prices. The only thing I would say is the hot drinks... More

Firstly, the staff were friendly and helpful when we enquired about rearranging furniture with our large party of 9 people. They accommodated our needs very quickly and our drinks all looked great. The hot chocolate was a hit! Danish pastries, tiffin and other cakes were all delicious. Only downfall was a waitress forgetting one drink but that's to be expected... More

Popped in for cake and coffee during a 3 day visit to Chester. Very helpful staff but the aerosol cream took the shine off what would otherwise have been great coffee!... The cakes were far too sweet but I accept this is down to personal taste.

Thank DavidandChrissyS
