Used to be our favourite coffee shop in Chester but sadly not any more after yesterdays visit. Ordered the usual, morning special- drink and bacon sandwich. First thing we noticed was the price had increased, fair enough, but then the bacon sandwich arrived. It used to be gorgeous, lovely thick bread, crammed full of crispy bacon, now it was thin...

After arriving in Chester after a 2 hour car journey we were desperate for a nice brew and some cake. The Cinderbox really took our eye and im so glad it did. The staff couldnt have been nicer and nothing seemed too much trouble. We sat at a recently vacated table which was cleaned almost immediatley for us. We ordered... More

Just popped into cinderbox coffee to make a change from my usual (the jaunty goat). Its not as cool as the goat inside but its nice enough and clean and light. The coffee choices are the standard fare with an excellent choice of cakes and pastries (I didn't indulge but really really wanted to). The coffee was good, the staff... More

Was going here every Sunday for a while with my parents for coffees. We always asked for our pastries not to be heated up but fairly often they were served to us hot. We felt bad to send them back and so, most of the time, just ate them anyway. The coffee cups are so large that when it comes... More

Staff were friendly . I ordered a bakewell slice and it was unpleasant soggy and under cooked . The tea cake wasn't toasted properly and cold and my friend didn't drink her coffee as it was bitter and burnt. I wouldn't go again.

Was staying on Lower Bridge Street so Cinderbox was handy for breakfast. Nice atmosphere, modern decor. One of us ordered porridge with fresh fruit, the other bacon sandwich and myself scrambled eggs on toast. The porridge came with tinned fruit - who eats tinned banana? - and had to ask for milk, the bacon was very fatty and not very... More

Stopped off for breakfast one morning. Only had toast and a coffee but it was pleasant enough. The staff were very pleasant and polite.

Normally visit a well known chain of coffee shops in Chester most Saturday mornings. Lately have been fed up with the awful coffee served there. Called in here and greeted by friendly staff which really does make a difference. It was early in the morning, so still very quite. We ordered two coffee's and two Danish pastries. Lovely large cups... More
