We popped in to Simply Delicious for a drink and cake whilst shopping in Leiston. Good selection of teas and coffees and an excellent chocolate and stout cake

Vegetarian chilli con carne with baked potato. Friendly and efficient service. Would definitely recommend it.

We had a quite long walk from Aldeburgh to Leiston and trawled up and down the various streets of Leiston a couple of times before venturing into this tiny cafe. We had rucksacks, walking boots and various other gear but were made so welcome by the lovely lady behind the counter (who must have seen how tired we were as... More

A lovely little cafe, went for tea and cake and wasn't disappointed. Would definitely recommend the white hot chocolate, was delicious and actually tasted like melted white chocolate unlike Costa and their disappointing white water hot chocolate. The selection of cakes were incredible- didn't know what to choose but went for a scone with cream and was delicious.

Called here for lunch having read good reviews and the extensive salad menu on the website. We were surprised to be greeted by a not-particularly-welcoming lady who informed us that the website was from the previous owners and she didn't do that menu. She said that she'd be ill (TMI) and all that was on offer salad-wise was a seed/lentil... More

Such a shame that what use to be a very regular morning breakfast stop now feels unwelcoming. It has a changed ownership but does lack something now, have tried a few times but sorry you need to look at how you present yourselves.

We often eat in Simply Delicious when we are in Leiston. Two tables with a view of the street and papers to read. Also settees further back in the cafe. Loose leaf tea and very scrummy scones. We shall visit again when staying locally (oh and free wifi).

Stopped here for a brunch whilst visiting Leiston. Very nice tea and scones, all freshly prepared with nice cream and jam. A very nice selection of fresh cakes available. Not a big seating area, and was a squeeze with a buggy, but would happily go again.

I am not vegan or vegetarian, and also I am not 'fussed' about whether food is organic or not, This delightful tea-room (or café) caters for those who do care about these food matters. However, it provides a delightful ambience for sitting and passing the time of day whilst enjoying excellently 'brewed' coffee or delicious organicbeetroot juice, which I drank.... More

Soaked from cycle ride we were made most welcome. Best hot choc and gluten free cakes and savoury lunch items I've ever seen! Not the usual cheese salad! We went back a secound time and my son who can't eat dairy had a huge piece of dairy free chocolate cake! Reasonably priced considering home made top recipes and environmentally friendly... More

Hello! We are a small cafe specialising in vegetarian wholefoods and ethical trading, Fresh Fairtrade Coffee and Teas.

Apart from our fresh bread bought in from Woodbridge, we make our own food onsite and change with the seasons, in small batches, with an eye on special diets too.
Examples - Suffolk Blue cheese and Broccoli Quiche.
- Nichols Butcher Ham with our Apple Chutney Filled Roll.
- Quinoa Mushroom Flan, Gluten Free.
- Smoked Mackerel with Parsnip and Horseradish salad, Dairy Free.
- Whole Orange and Almond Cake, Dairy and Gluten Free.

All our food is to enjoy sitting in with us, to take away individually, or available to order as whole cakes, quiches, tray bakes etc and whole buffets.

Fairtrade, organic and Locally sourced and Alternatives are important to us, used where possible in our food and on the shelves of our shop. Ranges go from Local Rapeseed Soap to Weleda Shampoo, Mixed Peppercorns to Prunes, Aesculus to Uva-Ursi in our Herbal Remedy range.
