Lemon Splits all round for Mattioli Woods

Hi to everyone at Brucciani’s. Our bun day is very special and brings both new and old memories for me having been a very happy and regular customer since 1965. Thanks to you and your team!

−Ian Mattioli

I'm writing to say thank you for the welcome and help you gave to myself and a group of Mums and babies who used your Cafe this morning ... I want to complement you and say thank you as we could not have received a better welcome. Staff were happy to give Mums who came in the downstairs entrance directions to where we had gathered upstairs, they helped mums upstairs with pushchairs and carried trays of drinks upstairs for Mums with toddlers... I am sure that many of the Mums, including myself, enjoyed a very sociable morning in your cafe and will use Brucciani's again in the future.

Hi, I am a tea drinker most of the time and I am happy to visit anywhere for a cuppa! But when I fancy a coffee your place wins hands down! I just ask for a mug of coffee nothing fancy and it comes filtered and the staff add hot milk - it's the best ever. I have tried coffee everywhere, and I thought I didn't really like it till I had yours .My question to you is "do you sell the coffee beans in your store? as I think it must be the blend you use that is the reason I adore yours so much.I would like to buy some so I can drink it at home too.


We just want to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to every one who was part of getting our cake as perfect as it was. I personally was so pleased with the cake when we saw it on the big day. It was better than I ever imagined it would look. And it tasted so good too! Everyone was so complementary of our cake and was amazed at our Minnie & Mickey cake toppers. Thank you again, for all your help. You made sorting the cake out a pleasurable job. You were very helpful and made me feel at ease knowing the cake was being taken care of. We hope you enjoy seeing the pictures. We definitely enjoyed the cake!

−Stacey and Christian

I would like you to know how much I appreciate your two coffee shops. I go to the Fox Lane one and the service is first class. The Manageress is a delight to talk to as are all the staff. Nothing is too much trouble, the food is excellent, and the premises are spotless. The same may be said of your Churchgate shop, another first class place. Well done!

−Miss R Pratt

Good morning I e-mailed you a few weeks ago to enquire about the possibility of buying a fruit wedding cake with no icing or decoration. You advised me to call into your Churchgate shop to discuss it with them. I did pop in and I have to tell you that the service I received was just wonderful! They were lovely people and really helped me out, especially Michaela (not sure of the spelling so I apologise if I have got it wrong!) She was so helpful and saved me, in my ignorance, from buying a cake to feed 5 times more people than intended! I felt I had to let you know what an asset she is to your Company. Thank you all for your help.


Hi! ........ I remember your ice-cream being the best ever, once tasted never forgotten

A good friend in Leicester has sent me a page of the Leicester Mercury reporting on your 75th anniversary and I wish to add my congratulations. I am a ‘Leicester man’ of 80 next birthday and live now in France. I spent nearly 40 years living in Australia returning to the UK about every 3 or 4 years – but every time I did I made a point of visiting Brucciani’s simply to have a coffee and one of your unmatched Lemon Cream Buns. I suppose one might say that I am somewhat of a world traveller, largely by career requirements, but I can safely say that your LCB’s are indeed totally unmatched anywhere I have stayed. I am pleased to read that you are are still going strong because when I visit Leicester again, which I surely will (DV), I will again make a b-line for my next LCB in one of your establishments – please keep going!

−Doug Collins

I am a long time customer of Bruccianis. Whoever had the idea to branch out with all these delicious loaves needs a pay rise! They are fab each and every one. I have tried one of your nut and cinnamon ones today I hope they are a great success for you

−Diane Regan

Just a brief note to say thanks to the staff at your Fox Lane cafe; I took my mother there yesterday as a treat for her 82nd birthday. It may not seem much, but she used to regularly visit for a malted milk and a cream cake with my Aunt on their shopping trips into Leicester, but ill health and a difficulty in walking has made it impossible for her to do this over the last few years. Your staff were all very friendly, helpful and in good humour. And the malted milk and cream cake were, according to my mum, as good as ever. While she was enjoying the cake, my mum told us that when she started work in Leicester - in the 1940's - she worked in Northampton Street, and used to go to Bruccianis for lunch. She seemed to think she went to the same cafe we were in yesterday. Amazing! Truly a Leicester institution. Long may you continue.
