what the judges said (2018-2019)

There is a steady stream of customers drawn to Pickers Union – not least because the area is home to interesting vintage markets and the decor is simpatico with the retro feel. Pickers Union have nailed the hearty initial greeting. Whoever is near the door, on the coffee machine or one of the wait staff, gives a big hello and directions to your seat. This immediate and cheerful recognition is very welcome and menus and water were delivered promptly. Food was served hot and was inviting. In addition to the all-day breakfast menu and nice choices of lunch time offerings it was good to see a few specials on the chalkboard menu.   The all important latte was served at a good temperature and presented with pleasant latte art. The milk was sweet and delicious and there was a lovely sheen.

Special strengths

Good coffee. Good atmosphere. Friendly customer service.  All day breakfasts and luncheon specials. Good value for money.  Ample parking. Proximity to Vintage markets.
