The staff were lovely; helpful and friendly but not overly so. The food was overpriced and disappointing. My husband had a sandwich on ciabatta; the bread was dry and the filling lacklustre. I ordered the quiche, expecting a nice big chunk, but it was a...More

We go off quite often with my in laws, and all the food we've had here is consistently great. The menu often has something a bit quirky and different on it too. Last time we went I had a lovely blueberry and lemon cake. My...More

Hidden off the main road between Grindleford AND Hathersage, look for the round building. Tasty coffee and cake can be had in this tranquil spot, seating also available outside. Staff friendly and quality crockery as one would expect from this superb cook shop.

We have never come away from the shop without buying top notch items. Cafe great, super coffee, service always good especially if you sit outside with your dog.

For many years this cafe has set high standards for food and customer service - not any more! There’s been a wholesale change of staff and the quality and choice of food has been substantially reduced. In particular the cake quality and choice is poor....More
