Stopped here for lunch. Varied selection of sandwiches, soups etc. Food was good, service was quick and friendly even though it was busy. Prices were reasonable. Would eat there again.

We had arranged to meet a few friends in town and wanted to grab a quick coffee and tea cake. Really friendly people and even brought out fresh tea when our friend arrived late. Great service

What a find! When we next visit Lichfield, we'll certainly go to this 'damn fine' cafe. Even before we walked in, we could sense that there'd be a warm welcome and we weren't disappointed. The staff were so friendly, which we imagine is one reason why customers return again and again. Another reason will be their varied and reasonable menu,... More

Good cafe with a good choice of home made food rather than bulk bought stuff. Nice for lunch but does get busy.

Visited here twice for lunch now, the pulled pork sandwiches are very good. The staff are very helpful and efficient, the small soup tasters a good idea, costs little but pleases the customer. We will make it a regular stop in future, carry on with the good work.
