Lovely place but a little overpriced on some menu items. I consider myself to be fairly savvy about how much stuff costs & how much effort it is for staff, and as such I'm usually somewhat lenient... but my cacao bowl was expensive, no question.

...bloody lovely though.

I have been to Evelyn's a few times now and sampled almost everything on the menu; it's all delicious. The service is always really friendly and it's a chilled, relaxing environment.

Nice relaxed atmosphere only a few strides away from all the branded stuff and hustle and bustle of Market St / City Centre. Good menu with something for everyone so great choice for a mixed group - we were in at 5pm for a pre-theatre meal. Food was really tasty and a little different , good value making the whole package a bit special.

Lots to chose from - nice extra touches like strawberries in water for anyone who wanted it.
Would definitely recommend.

Great service, excellent food and drinks (their white mocha is amazing, but their hot chocolate with mint was not), and all around very chill place for a Saturday brunch, whether you were with your significant others or friends. Would highly recommend.

I’ve been to Evelyn’s a number of times and it’s one of my favourite places for brunch for dinner, however lunch menu isn’t enough choice and this particular time the service wasn’t great. Not sure if it was just a bad day for our waistress, moody, zero smiles, and just overall unhelpful. Not disappointment as a regular customer.

Our food and drinks were delicious, we all really enjoyed our meals. The service was a little abrupt, our food was brought to our table and the staff were so quick we didn't get the chance to ask for some more drinks, or the condiments we wanted. We then had to wait to catch someone else's eye to order what we wanted. Other than that a very pleasant experience. It was a busy Saturday afternoon and I think the service reflected that, we felt quite rushed.

Overall a nice restaurant but we had long wait to order. We ordered a small plate starter which never materialised. Diners who came after us got their food before us. The food was OK but not outstanding. Nice ambience.

What a find! Had an absolutely lovely meal at Evelyn’s with a colleague. The ambience was spot on- soft lighting that wasn’t too bright, but bright enough to see, real plants adorning the wall and window space, friendly and relaxed (yet attentive) service, and a creative (yet reasonably priced) menu. Will absolutely be visiting this restaurant more often going forward!

Excellent decor and atmosphere. The ambience is great with the rustic tables, and combination of wood, metal and plants. Staff were very friendly and accomodating especially as we had a 7yo and a baby and buggy with us. The breakfast was delicious; the fluffiest pancakes ever, lovely meaty sausages and excellent crusty bread. Food was halal which was a bonus as we rarely find halal places in the city centre. Will be visiting again!

Service was very slow, for the second round of drinks I had to ask 3 different waiters. Food was average and portions are small - compared to other bars/brunch places in the area it's definitely one of the worst for value-quality-money

Second time I’ve been here for brunch and I’m sure it won’t be the last! Food is amazing, juices and coffees so imaginative and delicious - definitely recommend the rose and cardamom latte. Booking is a must as Evelyn’s is always in high demand, but it’s definitely worth it!

I would recommend Evelyn’s for the choice on the menu and the quality of the food. However, we had to wait about an hour for our food. The waiter did acknowledge this and was apologetic, but it was far too long to be waiting.
