If I hadn't checked TripAdvisor, I would never have known about it. A great little lunch spot. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The cafe is bright, clean and light. I had a hot minute steak, onion & mushroom sandwich which was tasty, and a nice lunch time size. I didn't really need the sweet potato fries - but... More

We go here regularly for breakfast and this is by far our favourite place. The staff are all really friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The food is also excellent and really reasonably priced. I can't recommend this place highly enough.

I think one or two people are getting confused here. This place is nowhere near the centre of Burnley. It's on Simonstone business park. Anyway, on to the food. 8 of us visited today (pre booked) with a variety of dishes consumed. They cater for vegetarians and also serve gluten free. All well sized portions & piping hot. Chicken goujons... More

Simply Classic is really worth a visit. Don't be put off that's it's on a business park. The atmosphere is so far from that of a business park canteen. It is simply (pardon the pun) a lovely bistro. Facilities are great, the food is always delicious with a good range to choose from. This is topped by the warmest, most... More

Went for lunch with a friend. First visit. Felt like a works canteen. Staff were lovely but didn't know one glass of wine from another and said so when ordering. They were actually the best thing about it though and that they left you alone whilst eating. Not sure if that's a positive or not as the food was average... More

Met here for a business meeting, place was bustling and so good to see places busy. Staff always friendly and the special burger was beautiful. Can not recommend this place enough!

We had family visit in May and wondered where to go for lunch. There isn't much choice in the town centre of Burnley and we had heard of this place from friends. It took a bit of parking as it is in the town centre of Burnley but when we arrived we were greeted at the door and seated at... More

Nice quiet bistro,good menu, great food and above all else friendly and helpful staff. The menu is very varied. I particularly liked the noodle dishes. They also cater for vegetarians and if you only want a quick snack the sandwiches are great value. Will definitely be going again.

Thank Arthur W
