Popped over to Scunthorpe for a change of scenery and was in need of a post shopping pick-me-up. The Columbia Cafe has a good location just off the main shopping area. Went in fancying just a coffee...but then saw the cake selection and my wife...and I had to have a piece. I had a succulent carrot cake, and my wife had a Nutella/Cookie dough cake. I also decided to have the Latte Supreme [which has whipped cream on the top as well]. They cakes were very tasty - and the caffine and sugary treats gave us more energy to hit the high street again.More

My partner and I nipped in for a quick breakfast. I opted for the poached eggs on toast. I was appalled to receive two poached eggs that had clearly been made in one of those horrible microwave containers! No runny yolk, no fresh egg white,...just rubbery, over-cooked microwave eggs! And all whilst under new ownership- not a great start. Will certainly not be returning.More

The Columbia is the best koffee shop /cafe in Scunthorpe,forget Starbucks or Costa coffee, they serve expensive mud compared to the Columbia.

Great little cafe in the middle of the town centre. Coffee good and the cakes are fab. Often designed around kids chocolate bars (dine bar cake, caramac cake etc etc) However, worth a stop for lunch too - jacket pots are nice as are paninis....Always very clean and staff are all very pleasantMore

We decamped to the café having been badly let down (for the second time) by our usual meeting place. We were given the upstairs, plenty of room along with excellent coffee and cakes. The group have decided to meet here for future meetings. The welcome...- 5 stars, coffee - ditto, cakes - ditto. We'll be back.More

Relax in the cosy coffee lounge or sit outside and enjoy a meal. Upstairs is a lovely area with sofas and more tables. The staff cannot do enough for you, despite it being constantly busy. Different savouries, paninis, sandwhiches, salads and more. The sweets are...divine and substantial. It's easy to spend far too much time there. Go and have a look, you won't be disappointed. The girls are lovely, consistent, friendly and efficient.More

Stopped for a coffee and some cake with a friend whilst shopping. A decent menu and large piece of cake (caramac) which we shared but it was very sweet. The staff were helpful enough but not overly friendly or welcoming, none seemed particularly happy in...their work. It is only a small place so not very good for a private conversation as you are sat quite close to each other.More
