"Most of what we ate was far better than OK. Those devilled kidneys were pert and soft and proper pink at the centre and came with a spiky sauce and a thick piece of sourdough toast. A truffled rarebit may have been light on the truffle bit, but the rarebit bit was all cheese and mustard and punch." READ REVIEW

"...it’s blatantly attempting to sell the hipster ethic, pushed through a corporate filter, back to the hipsters – right in their heartland. Sadly, they appear to be swallowing it wholesale: you can’t see the food for the beards." READ REVIEW

"Market Café is so perfectly aligned to the area that even if the food was terrible, locals would probably fight tooth and nail to keep it open - probably as a defiant act of self preservation." READ REVIEW
