Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

So nice to be out of Level 3 lockdown and to be able to enjoy a nice lunch with a girlfriend again at one of my favourite local cafes. Lygon is under new management and the new team is more than meeting the well-established high...standard. Couldn't resist taking one of their delicious yoyoes home for a treat for my husband. If you're dying for a piece of Louise slice just like Granny used to make, this is the place to find it.More

The staff were friendly and the decor is pleasant although not particularly original. We found the menu a bit limited. The usual big breakfast type of meals and a lot of different versions of hot chips. There was a Greek salad on offer and various...filled baps. Our meals were a good size and over all fine, although my husband felt the poached eggs in the eggs benedict were over cooked. If you're shopping in the area and need a hearty lunch this is a good place but I wouldn't make a special trip.More

Well, I didn’t like the coffee. Food was average and the staff seemed a bit miserable. So my rating would be about 2.5

Nice fresh food, clean and tidy presentation. Is on the expensive side for what you get but is on par with other lunch bars in the area.
