Perfectly placed cafe in town square with a view of the comings and goings of Montgomery. Friendly service, drinks promptly served and a word that food would be a little while, but that is what I would expect when food is freshly prepared to order. The tuna salad was imaginatively presented with grapes, apple and celery as well as all... More

This attractively located cafe should do a good trade but the actual menu seemed to bear no relation to the chalk board lists, resulting in more people walking out than eating when we visited. A pity; what was served was very good value - assuming it was what you wanted.

We had breakfast and they used a microwave to heat my sausage roll. The sausage used in the breakfast my other half had tasted really cheap. It is not expensive but the quality isn't great. 3stars I feel is fair.

Ok, so I don't normally have negative things to say about small businesses doing their best. After all, you can't please everyone. However, I have to say that after having breakfast with my cage fighter boyfriend - I was very dissmayed. Despite his skills, he has a calm disposiation - and doesn't kick-off very often. In fact, the last time... More

Unusual cafe that my OCD nature wanted to blitz! However, the cake was generous and lovely. Unfortunately my partner said the toilet needed some attention as the seat didn't stay up. A detail the all female staff probably wouldn't appreciate! Go for the cake, not the toilet!

Popped in for a snack. It is a quirky place, full of art, books, greetings cards etc. The cakes looked great and indeed they were but we ordered two lattes which seemed to be made with instant coffee. Others were having lunch which looked great.

The cakes are lovely and fresh, made by the staff who work there. The place is quirky, parking is free outside. The only downside I felt the staff were a little rude when we walked in, perhaps because we weren't locals. I would visit again but just for the cakes.
