“Great Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

Came across this place by accident, but went in for a late breakast, very continental and great value for money. Not suitable for pushchairs.

“cheese society”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

This is a lovely place to eat, don't forget folks they do breakfasts too! It does get busy at lunch time but if you go around 2ish the early lunchers are departing and you can usually eat in peace. The food is great, the puddings yummy and there is always a warm welcome. They cannot accomodate children under 10, this is also a plus!! I hope it never changes.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2012

I had the Macaroni Cheese with chilli flakes and it was easily one of the most fantastic meals I have ever had in my life - no kidding; and I am 48 and from London (like that matters)! The service was easy and attentive and the house wine very tasty. We went there a couple of days later and the food was equally fantastic - but no wine that time as I was driving.... If you are in Lincoln at lunchtime then you absolutely have to go to the cafe - you won't regret it!

“Great service, great cheese”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2012

A very small cafe which is a temple to cheese. No reservations but well worth the wait. Tables quite close together so be prepared to share a conversation with your neighbours!

Staff all very friendly and very keen on the cheese! The menu is still quite broad, will lots of specials, but the cheese is the heart of it all. Nice cheese counter too. All well priced, small but adequate drinks selection.

If you like quality cheese, you can't beat this place in the county. More of this please Lincoln!
