Poached eggs were over cooked and tasted of vinegar. Bread was very dry and one jam pot for everyone was very unhygienic. The coffee was Luke warm and I would estimate the entire brunch to be 20 per cent more expensive than other similar cafes in sheffield city centre.Service was slow and uncoordinated. Meals half eaten before drinks came etc. Will not be re visiting .

I went on my own on Easter Sunday for a coffee. Being alone, I was asked to sit around the corner, facing six waitresses and forced to listen to their loud chatter. The menu was asked for, and a flat white ordered. Meanwhile, the din from the till continued.

Waitresses finishing their shifts, helping themselves to a coffee at the till; a tray with hot coffee was waiting to be served, their socialising was at the expense of the client's hot beverage waiting to be served.

My coffee arrived; I was asked if I needed sugar; is it not natural to bring some sugar along? The coffee was frigid, not hot at all. I gulped it one go.

Meanwhile, another person who worked started chatting with two people sitting next to me. It would have nicer if they were a bit sensitive and kept the conversation to a minimum.

I wanted to have sometime on my own at an independent cafe. But the cacophony and the blaring noise from the speakers dampened the intended good spirit of the place.

Had breakfast here and fully satisfied with food, staff and decor. A varied menu catering for all and containing vegetarian and gluten free as well. Food seemed to be locally sourced and free range too. Homemade scones etc. Very busy and popular place to eat. Price wise a little more than some other cafes but quality speaks for itself

Very disappointed with the welcome and service at Marmadukes. Loving cafes and coffee, I couldn't remember why I didn't frequent this lovely looking cafe. However I now remember why. It's not a welcoming place.
No one cares that you're there supporting the business. They don't particularly care that you're there at all. Which is VERY rare in Sheffield, usually a warm welcome comes with the city. Won't be bothering to go back. Ended up going round the corner to Bill's where they are warm and friendly.

Amazing coffee, incredible eggs Royal and friendly service. The flat white was pretty much perfect in taste, size, temperature and aroma.
