Called in for some lunch end of November during our visit to Henley. Friendly staff, lovely bowl of soup and some nice cake. Nice setting by the river. Would use again if in the area.

This was just perfect for a spontaneous afternoon tea after our river trip on the Thames from Caversham. It is in easy walking distance from the Thame side path. A very informal venue with cozy seating arrangements, our group of 6 was readily accommodated and we could order something delicious to suit all requirement, from tasty soup to our very... More

A lovely located cafe near the river with a unique hot chocolate range for any chocolate lover. I often avoid it though just because it is often so busy, particularly cyclists and other sports people on a Sunday morning, or just shoppers. However, on its quieter times, really friendly staff, nice coffee, good food menu, average prices. WiFi. Decor nothing... More

Excellent high quality cafe place. Cosy, with superb coffee and a big variety of cakes. The view is equally excellent looking the river.

Visited on busy Saturday afternoon. Messy floors and very noisy. And a little bit chaotic. Warm tuna and cheese melt, made in a pale (my guess is not completely cooked) ciabatta. The Granola bar had a nice taste of cinnamon, but far too sweet could only manage a quarter. Food arrived and the waitress realised our drinks were not out... More

We had a really relaxed lunch here on Saturday and decided to share the dessert plate... Which was 8 pieces of delicious cake! They are very happy to give you a box -which we did- if you can't manage it all... Saves the agony of choosing just one!!

Ordered coffee and cake for two, on a weekday afternoon. Was probably less than half full at the time. Coffees arrived quickly, but the waitress didn't seem to know what cakes were available despite us going to the counter to see. Cakes took a good 10 minutes to arrive after further prompting - the waitress had clearly forgotten. Sadly, this... More

My review echos alot of others on here regarding this Cafe. Visited on a cold November afternoon for a warming drink with my elderly parents and partner. No greeting when we walked in we sat down the older waitress with glasses looked over a few times. Not once did she smile or tell us she would be with us shortly.... More

Large eating area - rather noisy at times. Very popular with cyclists, family. Just across from the river opposite The Angel on the Bridge.
