The loveliest food smells as you pass this place. The food is cooked beautifully, portions a little bit in the smaller side, all freshly prepared. The building however is too small, was virtually waiting for a gap to be almost sat on another diners lap you are that squashed in. Such a shame as otherwise lovely.

We just nipped in for a spot of lunch on a recommendation. Good menu with loads of healthy options and very reasonably priced.. Was quite busy but there were plenty of staff on and we didn't have to wait long. Good for food or just dropping in for a coffee.

It is a very small establishment and room is at a premium. I was unfortunately the person sat on the side of the table that backed onto another table when there were other tables at then end of the establishment between us, I had to keep moving to let staff through, and customers, to go about their business. We did... More

This is a lovely little gem of a cafe, hidden away from the main shopping centre but this by no means diminishes its appeal. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and the food is all cooked fresh on order. There is limited seating available but I have always managed to find a space to sit when visiting here. There...

Decided to try something different for lunch and mum suggested Continentals. I was unsure what to order as I really wanted to try one of the kebabs but am really particular about meat. I decided to risk the lamb and was so pleased I did. Very lean and tasty. Mum had a platter which looked delicious also. I am sure... More

Been here a few times. This is an excellent restaurant with great food and lovely people. Situated in Burnley centre, it's easy to get to and the prices for what they serve are fantastic. If you've never been, do yourself a favour and try it out. Highly recommended.

Thank Peter H
