A lovely find in the small town of Painswick. Ideal for a coffee and something sweet like apple pie, danishes, cakes. Seating inside and out. Pleasant staff.

Lovely cafe and food in a pretty location but we found the service to be slow, although not busy, and rather expensive.

We visited the cafe as we walked the Cotswold Way. We had coffee and warm apple cake with clotted cream. The assistant told us that it was great warm and how right he was. I think it was the most delicious thing I have tasted...More

My husband and I moved to the area about a month ago. One day, while exploring, we came upon this sweet, little restaurant. It was obvious that all the food was made from scratch and, as we hadn't had lunch, we decided to sample the...More

We had a late lunch, the food was excellent, side salads were delicious and perfectly dressed. The coffee was fabulous. Service was great, the only downside was the cost! 3 sandwiches, an aubergine bake, 2 coffees and 2 waters came to £45!
