The Mint Cafe is under new management (2019).


We offer every customer a warm welcome and friendly atmosphere, and celebrate the finest fresh local ingredients.  We are passionate about supporting our local suppliers.  Our bread is baked fresh daily by Dorringtons, and we serve amazing local sausages from the Churchgate Sausage Shop.

Located in the bustling village of Sawbridgeworth within Bakers Walk, our clean and cosy cafe has 5 stars for hygiene and we serve sustainable and ethically sourced coffee.

As effortlessly chilled as they come, we'll make you the coffee of your dreams – everything is intended to soothe, our staff are lovely, our breakfasts and lunches are great, and our cakes are nigh-on irresistible. Partnered with a perfect espresso, it’s a guaranteed cure for those rainy-day blues.

We also have a clean and quiet outside seating area - with heaters & blankets!  Dogs are welcome within out outside area.

We're a little bit biased, but we believe that our coffee and food is pretty much perfect. Our cafe is unpretentious but attractively decorated, with a soothing colour scheme and jolly pictures on the walls, some of which are provided by local artists and photographers. Fanatically skilled but socially casual, our staff will always aim to go out of their way to make sure you are satisfied. We love our staff.  They make the place buzz with their evident enthusiasm for coffee, catering and customers.


You’ll almost always find a mixed crowd, right down to babies and toddlers. With outstanding baked goods and freshly cooked plates of food, our regulars reckon our breakfasts are irresistible. Sandwiches are equally good. And the coffee? Well, if you like espresso, you’ll love this place – heaven in a tiny cup, using sustainable beans. The baristas tend their machines as if they were Maseratis, and that attention to detail pretty much sums up everything that Mint Cafe does.

We can't wait to welcome and serve you!
