Have been regularly to Max Cafe over the years, and twice in the last 2 weeks. Visitors to our house insist on a visit. Orders taken promptly by efficient staff. Karin always makes time to have a chat. Mark rustles up some tasty dishes. Yesterday we had Salmon fishcakes, battered Prawns, and Piri Piri Chicken, all served with nice accompanying... More

Had a light lunch with a friend. Greeting was friendly with advice on specials. As I was having poached eggs on toast, I was offered choice of bread and plumped for granary. Eggs were cooked perfectly, no hard yolks! Green tea was served in lovely large cups. I have eaten here before as it is only 10 minutes drive and... More

I visit this café on a regular basis and always find the food good. I would advise people to avoid it though if it looks busy as that is when the service does slip.
