Visited here for lunch on a few occasions. The savoury afternoon tea is very nice, a cheese & chilli scone and a slab of cheese with some chilli chutney... They also do very nice soup and sandwiches. Great coffee too.

Heading north on the A140 Chilli Farm is on the left just after the sign to Mendlesham Industrial Park and just prior to the left turn to Mendlesham village. The food in the cafe is excellent, the staff are very friendly and the shop is full of delights. Well worth a visit if you are passing by.

We frequently stop here and have always found the food to be good, tasty and freshly prepared. We particularly love the home made soups. The deli stocks things we've not found elsewhere. Friendly staff.

I was famished and looking for a place to eat and all of sudden I saw a sign on the side of the road for this place. Such a cute and quaint place. Truly a hidden gem with quality food. They also sell tons of great goodies. Loved it!

Stopped by for lunch. Food was of a high quality but rather overpriced, nearly £10 for a ploughman's with some lovely ham and nice cheese but two small hunks of bread and chutney. We sat downstairs in the deli where it got a bit crowded with staff weaving in and out of customers whilst taking food around and collecting empty... More

Stopped for refreshments. Service was a bit slow. Had to chase up the cheese on toast! Shop and deli was interesting. Bought a few items. Plants for sale outside too.
