If you're looking for a substantial breakfast which is reasonably priced and fair of quality, out can't go too far wrong here. Friendly staff too.

This is pleasant cafe. With a good choice of light bites, paninis, jacket potatoes etc. You order from the counter and they are always friendly.

Ordered cheese and onion omelette and couldn't actually eat it. Was far to much cheese that it was greasy, really greasy! (some might like this though). I also think it's quite expensive here But my husband does like it.

Went with my mum and brother and kids again for a quick lunch. Great selection. Great prices. All had different meals and all happy. Especially recommend the burritos and quesquadillas. Good choice of baguettes and my daughter loved the cheesy chips. Nice location close to the embankment for a nice stroll.

Overpriced. Poor customer service. Inconsistent food. Some of which is barely edible. I don't know if they've changed chefs but this place used to be far better. Whoever does the cooking shows no attention to detail. I can only guess that it gets so busy as there is little choice in Wellingborough. I certainly won't be returning. And would advise... More
