* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

An “excellent coffee and cake selection” (verging on the “healthy” side), supported by “interesting” snack lunches underpin the allure of this town-centre café – and “in summer you can retire to the courtyard or sit out front to watch the world go by”; “unfortunately the branch in Winchester has now closed”.

From “cheese straws and Portuguese custard tarts to die for”, to “excellent coffee” and light meals, the cookware chain’s “upmarket” city-centre outpost is a hit all-round; extra marks for the “pretty prompt service”.

“Really excellent coffee… delicious Portuguese custard tarts, and other stunning pastries to accompany it” – this packed city-centre branch of the cookware chain “has reproduced the excellence of the original Alresford store” and “it’s brilliant for a ‘pop-in’ brew or lunch”.

The “best coffee anywhere” is one of the draws to this posh and rather “cramped” café-deli tied to a city-centre branch of a local cookware chain – “but if you can get in, everything is top notch” (with the menu ranging from cakes and muffins to savoury bakes).
