I came into this place before either was officially opened (the website says 8.30 it its actually 9am) but I was still allowed to sit and order. The service is really friendly and the porridge was good and very reasonable. Would come back.

Friendly, helpful staff serving delicious food. The sandwiches are filled to the brim, the soup is home made and piping hot. The toilets could do with more thorough cleaning.

From great espresso to homemade Italian cuisine and great efficient staff this is by far the best cafe in the Lincoln area. Recommend their homemade Tuscon pork, lasagne or raviolis. Great stuff!
