If you are in Chesterfield and you are a coffee aficionado then this is the place to visit. Been coming here for years and it doesn't fail. Pick your coffee beans, watch them ground and then drink. Superb. The food is excellent as well.

Great cafe, the sandwiches and cakes are fresh, reasonably priced and delicious and there is a huge choice of both tea and coffee. They also serve a very good afternoon tea, all in friendly surroundings with attentive staff. Would recommend it.

A wide variety of tea and coffee due to the nature of its main business. Nice place for a quick coffee and cake.

As soon as you enter the cafe, the aromas of coffee beans entice you to find your table and study the menu. Service is excellent by the very friendly staff. Drinks are served in proper china, tea is made with leaves, coffee in cafetieres ......More
