Visited on Saturday morning with friends. Been before many times. I had their delicious pancakes with maple syrup and crispy bacon. It was so delicious and I enjoyed it very much. Lovely staff. The only thing I'd say that my latte wasn't hot enough. It was only warm. I should of asked for another one but all the staff were... More

This was our first visit to STW and I look forward to many more lazy Sunday breakfasts here. Despite arriving early on a Sunday all of the inside tables were already full, but as it was a mild morning we were perfect comfortable outside and made use of the available blankets. We ordered lattes, buttermilk pancakes with bacon and eggs... More

Another trip to our favourite local cafe but our first with our 16 week old puppy - a puppuchino and some wonderful cakes mean we will be going back (again)! Always worth a visit any time of the year for great warming food (though get ready for that sugar intake...)

One of the best eggs Benedict I have had and the porridge with honey and berries is amazing and then there is the cakes🍰. This is not the place to go if you are not hungry.

Very nice and cosy place for a morning coffee and breakfast with warm and welcoming atmosphere. Even though there are no more crosaints still worth a visit as often as possible:)

I visited with a friend on a cold Saturday morning for a coffee and snack . We didn't want too much but what we had was delicious. The coffee is very good ,I'm fussy about it and had no complaints at all. I chose a scone which was huge ,and my friend a thick slice of sourdough toast. We both... More

Often busy, and therefore service can be a little slow, but food is usually good and all freshly cooked. A good place to take a friend or older family member. In a good position on Leigh Broadway.

Cakes look amazing but haven't tried them. Had Welsh rabbit which was the best and bubble and squeak was really tasty. Definitely recommend here.

Best place in Essex for a lazy Sunday brunch. Always busy but happily take your number and call you when a tables free (can't book ahead). Really good food and you can always take a slice of cake home with you for later.
