I stopped here for a "quick" lunch with my family. While the food was pretty tasty, it took an hour to arrive after ordering. For lunch, this is just too long and we feel we should have been warned about the wait time when we...More

Have been in here twice for late breakfasts and food was very good both times. However if you are in a hurry it might not be the best option around as it is all very laid back and unrushed which is great if you are...More

I've been to Glastonbury several times, but today was the first time at the Lazy Gecko. Reasonable sized seating area outside, as well as in. The tea and cake were both good. Shame that the grass is artificial, though I understand the practical necessities.

Lovely cafe, lovely staff very friendly and helpful. The veggie breakfast was a bit lame though. Beans are not expensive and there were but 30 odd on my plate. The sausages were warm not hot and was given half a tiny tomato, nice toast &...More

It was after 2 pm so a lot of restaurants are closed and many that are still open are packed. We're quite lucky to have found seats at this place. It has quirky and colourful arts and decor. I love a place that has personality....More

Great breakfast. There are more places catering for vegan than omnivorous diets in Glastonbury, so it was good to find somewhere selling a full english breakfast, that and the eggs benedict were both delicious. Service was great and loads of interesting art (for sale) on...More

Been to Glastonbury many times and loved this cafe but yesterday (20/04/18) was obviously not welcome. It was about 3pm and I needed a quick bite to eat and a drink (I’m diabetic and walk with a stick) so went to my favourite cafe The...More

We were looking for somewhere to have brunch, and chanced upon this cafe. The staff are a mix between completely laid-back, and very anxious to please; but all were friendly, and our food was delivered promptly. The Eggs Benedict and Eggs Florentine were both exceptional...More

We dropped in looking for a place that would give a flavour of Glastonbury. It did from the decor to the hot chocolate. It's odd yes lots to look at and the menus has a twist but very nice twist. We will go back again.

Lovely outdoor seating opposite the Town Hall, but a little in the way of other pedestrians, so not as peaceful as other places. Ordering coffee seemed to be fairly complex as the staff seemed a little muddled and confused. The coffees arrived separately as the...More
