This is great spot for a tea or coffee while watching our kids play in the park. The park is beautiful in spring, even when it's raining. Great ice cream too, the kids loved the blue bubblegum.

Lovely cafe located in the park in Matlock. Plenty of tables just outside the cafe and also in the garden area. Very pleasant especially when the weather is fine. Good service, nice coffee & very relaxing.

Spent an enjoyable evening at the cafe's Thai bistro evening where we were treated to a lovely meal with a selection of starters, a Thai curry and a really yummy desert. We were looked after very well by the staff who were very attentive. We will certainly go to a bistro evening again!

With a lovely location, really friendly staff, amazing high quality food, value for money- prices and the ambience of a homely decorated heritage building, this cafe has got it all. We had lunch but the bistro evenings seem to have a popular reputation as well. Cakes, breakfasts, lunches or just a coffee this is a fabulous place to spend time.... More
