I too like Cafe Nero @Seahorse 

I tend to drink latte when I'm out and about ... but, it's a bit too strong for me ... yes, I know I'm a bit of a wuss

I like their Millionaires caramel shortbread ... and, once when that was not available the knowledgeable barista suggested a lemon muffin ... it was lovely 

Like the logo on the back of their t-shirts

Best Coffee This Side Of Milan

 

Your reviews would really help me & I shall try the soya chocolate asap 

 

I live in Skipton, North Yorkshire

I havn't been into the town's Starbucks ... but, have been into Costa Coffee where the customer service was atrocious ... so, Cafe Nero it is ... great place to do a bit of people-watching if you can get a window seat smiling

oh avoid Costa then, the one in Rugby tends to be alright,  I must say. that's shame, anytime I've been back up north I'm reminded of how friendly my lot are, would have thought Yorkshire would be very polite. Can't win them all I suppose. 

 

I am from Newcastle originally, pretty much as northern as it gets before you hit Scotland!

 

I will put the review of the dish tomorrow as my daughter gave birth yesterday, it's been a bit hectic!

Caramelatte with Raspberry & Amaretti Crumble Cake

The all mouth and no trousers of the coffee world.

 

Sorry for the delay - moving forward if we can decide what drink to have each Wednesday as thats the prioity day it means as well i can post on the Friday per suggestions. 

 

Caramelatte

 

The idea is nice, who doesn't like caramel? Unfortunately, the caramel sits on the creme on the top of the coffee. What you are really getting is a latte with whipped creame on top with caramel sauce. Which, don't get me wrong, is nice but doesn't hit you in the face with a caremel-y treat as i expected. The contrast of the cold cream against the hot coffee was actually quite delightful. I would say this is not a regular order - perhaps on a down day or you fancy a little pick me up - I would advise an additional shot as the coffee itself if somewhat lost in the creame, et al. 

71873402_10162244256455548_2011545785597952000_n.jpg

I would have to give it a 6/10 - it's not a bad drink, but it's just not as good as it should be. 

 

  • contrast of the cold and hot was pleasantly surprising
  • lack of caramel flavour in the liquid itself dissappointing
  • caramel sauce on top was pleasant and ample
  • normal price of £3.65 seems unjust for a latte with whippy cream on top!
  • low temperate - it's gone in a few minutes, definately not a people watchers drink

 

Raspberry & Amaretti Crumble Cake

Now the cake. Well, I have to say it was the star of the show. Exceptionally moist and jam packed with raspberry flavour. The Ameretti flavour was sort of so sublt you couldnt really pick it out but over all it was blummin delicious. I will say if you are used to crumble, as in proper sunday roast pudding crumble, you will be disappointed. It is soft almost like oat flakes. Still very nice, just not crumble.

As a coffee counter part, its very nice. 8/10 for this cake.

 

  • very strong and yummy raspberry flavour
  • decent price, less than £2
  • ever so moist and squidgy 
  • on the downside you have to give a piece to your daughter so she will take pictures for you

I hope you enjoyed the review - this Cafe Nero is in Watford high street. 

 

Thanks for reading

Re: O2 Priority - Caffe Nero Menu Review

Thanks @Seahorse for an excellent review.

I`m not sure that I would choose the coffee but the cake looks and sounds like something I would go for. In fact, when I`m next in my local town I`m going into Cafe Nero and order the cake, which, in my view, is really quite cheap.

Thanks again for the review and I`m looking forward to the next one. 

Could I please make a suggestion? I`m not a huge coffee fan, although I don`t mind the odd cup of black coffee, so is there a chance of a review of a type of black coffee, or any type of tea which Nero serve?
