Customer Reviews

As a regular customer I can honestly say that standards are maintained and this wasn’t a one off visit. All of our family choose this place first if we want to eat any item that contains bacon. Have it how you want and served with what you want with no fuss.
Staff are lovely and cheerful.


Sewards End

It’s my husband’s breakfast place of choice and has been for over 15 years. They serve lovely breakfasts and have many options.
The milkshakes are the best around so even if we don’t have food there we frequently pop in for a takeaway milkshake.



Mocha is a hidden cafe in Saffron Walden offering a very varied menu with plenty of seating. It’s 100 yards from Costa Coffee but they charge half as much money for the same thing. The atmosphere is cosy, the staff are friendly and the service is very good. They do a great fry up and do a roaring trade most of the time. There are 3 tables outside


Saffron Walden

Been swimming, want a bacon bap and a mug of tea? This is the place to go for traditional British food, in a pleasant, clean setting, well-cooked at reasonable prices..”
