The staff of this great little coffee house will probably cringe at my use of the cliché but I'd struggle to sum it up briefly without using the word 'bohaemian'. I'll add the words quirky and cosy, just to add insult to injury! What I can say is that you get an exceptionally good cup of coffee here. The effusively... More

Unique and atmospheric interior, very enthusiastic staff and good coffee. The tables are slightly wobbly so consider yourself warned.

We popped in yesterday for a bit of lunch and a hot drink. We sat down at a table but we're not approached about ordering or a menu. We figured out eventually we had to go up to the bar (the place is tiny and it wouldn't have taken much to tell us that!) The coffee menu is hard to... More

Thanks for popping in yesterday, Sorry that you felt the out guys were not up to scratch on the service front. We do pride ourselves on our great customer service and have just won an award for that very thing. I can assure you that we are a very busy shop so your observation about only a few customers in...

This is hands-down the best coffee and warmest welcome in Buckingham. The guys are always friendly and chatty, and ready to recommend coffees etc. The coffee shop itself is quirky and cosy and it's a great location opposite the Saturday flea market. Highly recommend.

A fab place to go for a coffee. Quirky, they really know their coffee and you can also get some great herbal teas that are really flavoursome. It's the sort of place you can go into by yourself and sit quietly with a book or chat to the other people in there. Really friendly. And dog friendly too!

We just dropped in for a snack at lunchtime and were pleasantly surprised at the unusual decor. The menu was different and the toasties an absolute dream. My flat white was the best that I have had in this country apart from the cafe on the harbourside at Nairn in Scotland. Terriffic sparky staff and good service. What more can... More

I really don't know anywhere else quite like G&G, and for it to be in sleepy Buckingham! The coffee is of course superb but that is only half of it. Perhaps the best way to explain is that i was once in there as they were finishing the bi-annual refurb before last and it really wasn't possible to tell who... More

I had heard about this cafe but never had been, so recently I decided to give it a try, its very unusual, but very homely, they serve a good cup of coffee at reasonable prices. It wasn't busy on my visit - so I hope they keep going, I will use again.
