What a great place to meet for lunch...! Very popular so had to wait for a table but really worth it.

An extensive choice of lunches, snacks, amazing cakes and pastries so I need to go back to work my way through the menu..!

I had the bubble and squeak with grilled chorizo and it was just delicious. Thoroughly recommend going to this little gem of a place.. Staff extremely friendly and happy.

I will be back

Having read that Stop the World was voted in the top eight cafes for breakfast in Essex Life we decided to give it a go.
We were not disappointed. The menu is extensive with such interesting choices it was difficult to decide what to order.
We tried the full English and Buck Rarebit, the former was of high quality and as much as you could eat, the latter although rather bland in it's presentation was delicious. The choice of teas was extensive and varied and very tasty.
The waitresses were friendly and helpful and the service was quick despite being almost full.
The prices for really good quality food were very reasonable.
We can understand why it received such good reviews and will certainly re-visit to try more dishes for breakfast and lunch. The display of cakes were very inviting so will probably have to try these too!

I have been here a few times and have not been disappointed. The food is lovely and they are very generous on the cake portions. I especially love visiting here around Christmas time when it is decorated - it has a very lovely, cosy atmosphere.
Very friendly staff.

Lovely place, it's like a fantastatical fairytale land of cakes and sweets, the cakes are enormous, the tea and coffee beautiful, the atmosphere is lovely although it's often rammed with ladies who lunch (no offence to ladies who lunch). The buck rarebit and bubble and squeak are my favourites.
