We had read the reviews and sorted this cafe to go to. It was fairly full and looked nice but we were dissapointed with the food. The omelette was thin and cooked at too high a temperature so was brown and crispy and the mushroom filling was very sparse. The chips were, I believe, oven chips, nice and crispy but... More

Margaret, do you know what, i am disappointed that you have chosen to damage our reputation with this summary. I don't actually think you know how upsetting it is to read this, because do you know, nobody that works for us has had any feedback recently, and every customer new or old is asked how they enjoyed everything. So why... More

I've lived in Daventry for a year now and every week me and my friend are 'ladies who lunch' and I'm gobsmacked that we have never been into the courtyard cafe. The smells of home cooking as you walk through the door will add pounds on your waist line and you will defiantly be spoilt for choice, the prices are... More

Just in the right place to pop in after a visit to the library. Good coffee, nice atmosphere and reasonable prices. A pleasant place to sit and chat with friends, not as hectic as some other cafes!

This is not an easy place to find!! After walking around most of Daventry town centre looking for a good place for coffee and cake, I thought that I would have to resort to Costa until finding this cracking little coffee shop tucked away in the courtyard! The coffee isn't barista quality, but is of a reasonable standard but the... More
