After reading reviews we decided to give this place a try! What a lovely little place. We were warmly greeted as we entered and casually sat down. Very clean environment. I had a Kentucky Panini with fries and my husband has a Philly Steak Panini. Both were absolutely delicious, tasted very clean and fresh, followed by a very well made... More

The food here is fantastic value for money, it's very filling and so incredibly tasty. The service is fast and if you can get a seat it's a great place to eat. I wish they had more seats, but it's still worth getting it as a take out!

I used Lunch to deliver some corporate catering to some clients of mine as a Christmas treat to thank them for their business. The feedback I received from my clients was amazing! They all raved about the food (which I know is all freshly prepared with passion). The service to organise the deliveries was excellent too, so it was great... More

Been here many times - every time excellent food! Today I had the Philly Cheese steak panini, which I would recommend. Prices are extremely reasonable. 'Normal' sandwiches are similar to greggs prices, but much tastier.

I have been to 'lunch' before and my husband and I visited before the cinema and Xmas shopping. We both had the normal sized ,breakfast which whilst taking a little longer was brilliantly cooked and hot and everything tasty. Lovely sausages and bacon and the bread used for toast is lovely. I ordered a cappuccino which arrived with no saucer... More

Arrived and sat at an un-cleaned table, moved.....to another un-cleaned table so wiped myself. Cappuccino nice but metal spoons would be a lot nicer to use than wooden take away stirrers especially if eating in. The Chips,chicken and chorizo was nice but have the owners tried eating out of their plastic baskets which keep tipping unless you try eating from... More

Thought this place was just a cafe but it's a cut above that. Amazing menu, so hard to make a choice from. My fussy niece was with us and they made her a fried egg sandwich, even that was gorgeous. I had a burger which had a layer of pulled pork as well as salad etc. My homemade burger was... More

Came in today for the second time, and as always the food is amazing! Portions are massive and at a good price, and service is quick too. The only downside was our waitress who seemed a bit miserable- maybe we just caught her on a bad day. However the staff on our first visit were incredibly friendly and helpful, so... More

Lunch offers quality home cooked food in a relaxed setting. We are proud to have been the first place in Colchester to offer pulled pork and its popularity keeps increasing. Such has been the success of the business we are now proud to offer gourmet burgers and have just introduced fries with our own secret recipe seasoning.
