Enjoyable lunch break here in this quirky, homely, cosy cafe. All staff really friendly. Latte was lovely - and a generous size. The goats cheese and gooseberry jam toastie was to die for and the salad and coleslaw accompaniment were tasty. As delicious as the...More

Fab lunch very helpful staff answered allergy questions without any fuss and with a smile on their face. Plenty of food, good quality, well prepared. Offered to refill my tea with hot water without being asked, which was great. I would come back.

Friendly (and dog friendly) service. Excellent food, including vegetarian options. Drinks and cakes consistently superb. Only problem might be finding a seat but worth waiting for. Menu is more interesting than many cafes.

Dropped in for a light lunch while in Eyam. I ordered a goats cheese tart and my (meat-loving) partner a toasted sandwich. Both came with house slaw and a mixed salad. We were both totally delighted by the care that went into everything, particularly the...More

Super little cafe perfectly located in the heritage village of Eyam in the Peak District. We bake gorgeous cakes and cook tasty savouries 7 days a week for you to enjoy, using fantastic local produce. Our coffee is Fairtrade, organic and rainforest certified but above all is expertly made and tastes great, and we do our bit to maintain the superb environment we are in by recycling and encouraging less packaging for our take-aways.So pop in before or after your walk, or if you're really organised phone ahead & order a posh picnic, crammed with goodies to enjoy on your walk. We'll happily fill your flask with our gorgeous soup on colder days.Free wi-fi is available, there are treats for your four-legged friends, so join us at VG for a warm welcome and a spot of heritage on the Eyam trail.
