This is a really nice café above ground level in the rows and I am pleased that we found it. I had a cream tea with my wife which was enjoyable. Service was very friendly and the whole experience made us want to return next time we are in Chester.

I have used this cafe numerous times and it never fails to please. It is a little hard to find being on the rows in Northgate Street just up from the Cross. It is a little independent cafe serving very tasty home cooked and home prepared food. Friendly service and truly a little hidden gem in the centre of Chester.... More

A stumbled upon cafe, hidden on the rows. Extremely friendly and accommodating staff. Lovely lunch, couple of freshly made panini's which were packed with fillings and delicious. Huge pot of tea to wash it down and a very reasonable bill for central Chester. Clean, fresh food at a decent price. Would definitely recommend and return.

We stopped off here for a late lunch and were really impressed. The service was great, the staff were extremely polite and the food was spot on. The building itself is interesting too in one of the oldest parts of Chester, there's some nice history to it. Being 6'3" I needed to duck the beams though so watch out if... More

This small tea shop is on the upper row of Northgate. It has three outside tables, perched on a raised platform and overlooking the street. The staff are very helpful and friendly. A great little spot to have a coffee and watch the street below

We came as a big group of 11 and were accommodated well. Given that we initially tried to go for afternoon tea in Grovenor hotel (it was fully booked) this initially appeared as a disappointment and a poor plan B. But we shouldn't have worried. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the service is second to none... More

Visited today for the first time, we were looking for a light lunch and the menu met our expectations with a good assortment of sandwiches and soup but what made the visit especially enjoyable was the courteous and friendly staff, very pleasing to find such polite service, thank you and keep up the good standards and we look forward to...
