First impressions count a lot and our Village Walking Group's first impression couldn't be faulted. We had a warm reception from the staff and management, our tables were well-spaced, the service was spot-on and the coffee just right. I was impressed that I had two...calls prior to our visit to determine just what we would need in the way of food, so there would be sufficient staff - the first time we have ever had that happen in almost four years! Facilities and ambience were most appropriate. The only negative aspect was the difficulty in parking, but the café couldn't be held to blame for that! An excellent place to return to. Thanks LB&Co!More

Morning coffee at LB and Co has been an essential part of my day for the past 8 months. The staff are incredibly lovely and the coffee is great! - Vasco

Hands down, this is the best place to eat in the entire country! A calming space, with excellent waiter who demonstrated service I’ve experienced in 5 star plus service. The food and on both occasions was absolutely stunning. The mushrooms in particular (which I had...with eggs Benedict and creaming mushrooms of ciabatta) were cooked to perfection. We all have coffee, everywhere we go, but if you are able to call this cafe your regular, you’ll start the day impressed with the greatest balance of coffee anywhere else I’ve ever had coffee. A massive thank you to David, the chef and barista. Thank you so much.More

I would recommend LB&CO to anyone! I visit often, and every time am met with friendly service. Both the cabinet and menu food is always delicious! And the coffee (especially iced) is some of the best I've tried. Definitely check this place out next time...you need a new cafe to visit!More

I come by pretty much every day on the way to uni. They have the BEST Mochaccino’s, amazing coffee, as well as great service. Love the atmosphere, it makes early mornings so much more bearable, and every staff member I’ve met has been so lovely....Highly recommend!More
