I use David's coffee shop regularly and I can only say try it for yourself. If you are a good coffee lover you will not be disappointed by the product, the atmosphere and the wonderful staff. On Saturday eight of us booked a table for dinner and entertainment. The food was superb; try the fillet steak but go back again... More

David's has a no-children policy which makes it a very pleasant bolt hole especially during half term and other school holidays. Just off the market place in Sudbury so well located and popular for friends meeting up. Good range of food on offer and first class coffee.

Wish there were more places that adopted David's "No Children" policy; they would make a fortune. Now, please don't think I dislike children, I don't. It is just that these days so many parents seem prepared to tolerate bad behaviour and disobedience without the smallest admonishment of their little cherubs, and it always amazes that so many eating places in...

What a supprise and a real treat. Turned up on my own to find many familliar faces, settled down with some old friends.... More

My first visit, and I was really impressed. The tables are well spaced, so it never feels crowded. The food is really good and very reasonably priced. Good coffee, too. The deli sells all sorts of cheeses, so I'll probably be tempted next time I visit!

This is the place to recover from xmas shopping. Excellent Tea - I recommend the Ceylon, and coffee - cappuccino with froth to the bottom. The toasted tea cakes were just the fresh spicey flavour they should be. Quality newspapers and unhurried friendly atmosphere was just the ticket and completed the revitalising experience.
