I had a really tasty hotdog

My wife had a fantastic chicken and butternut squash soup with a crusty bread roll.

Would recommend that they sell recipe cards for their soups

A very deserving charity, so tipping is much appreciated

… we were served incredibly quickly, staff were busy, direct, polite, and happy. Tables were filling as quickly as people left, and yet the staff were still getting out top notch food at speed, and doing it without showing signs of stress. Definitely going to be my first stop next time I find myself in Lincoln.

The soup at the « Rising From The Rubble » café in Lincoln is made by Allison, who possesses magical fairy powers. The soup is so brilliant, so deep in flavour, so full of « je ne sais pas quoi » that although you may visit the cafe at first due to general interest in the concept, you keep returning for the blinking marvelous food!!
Brilliant value for money, brilliant staff, brilliant customer service, brilliant food.
What else to say???
I was hesitant about posting this review because the cafe may become too busy to able to easily get a table. However they richly deserve the recognition.
Go there (or don’t! I’ll be able to still get a table!).

Taken for afternoon tea by my daughters and couldn’t fault it. We chose one traditional and two Mexican plates all to share, and everything was lovely. The food was amazing, the service brilliant and great value for money too - what’s not to like!?

While you’re there, ask one of the volunteers about the concept and programme too - an inspirational story.

For taste, value and simply a lovely lunch experience, the Rising Cafe is an absolute must. A simple and very effective ordering system, a really quirky (in the nicest possible way) décor and time/space to chat, relax and enjoy the food. My wife had the Churchilli dish with avocado, while I had the souperb of the day, sweet potato, butternut squash, coconut and chilli. Delicious! And for £7...unbeatable!
