This is a lovely little gem of a cafe, hidden away from the main shopping centre but this by no means diminishes its appeal. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and the food is all cooked fresh on order. There is limited seating available but I have always managed to find a space to sit when visiting here. There...

Decided to try something different for lunch and mum suggested Continentals. I was unsure what to order as I really wanted to try one of the kebabs but am really particular about meat. I decided to risk the lamb and was so pleased I did. Very lean and tasty. Mum had a platter which looked delicious also. I am sure... More

Been here a few times. This is an excellent restaurant with great food and lovely people. Situated in Burnley centre, it's easy to get to and the prices for what they serve are fantastic. If you've never been, do yourself a favour and try it out. Highly recommended.

Continentals is really good during the day and at night. We also get it delivered to work for a Friday lunch. They have loads of different options and they are different to the usual places in town. Really good for a tasty healthy lunch!
