What a great place for breakfast or lunch. Slightly quirky but great atmosphere! I liked the old ornaments/appliances from forgotten times that adorn this cafe. Great value for money!

This place is great! I had the omelette and my wife the pancakes and both were incredible. It’s only 8:00 am on a Sunday and I can’t believe the place isn’t packed. It should be.

We had breakfast, both of us loved it. You had to get your own coffee, which wasn't always hot. Service was good, but not always the fastest when they are busy.

My partner had the chorizo frittata and loved it! My bacon benny was undercooked- slimy eggs despite ordering medium. The hash browns were a combination of dried up potato skins and undercooked potatoes. Very disappointing! Loved the signs posted throughout the restaurant!
