We got here at 9.30 & got a table - the cafe was full by 10am! The Apprentice breakfast was yummy, & the latte lovely and smooth. Good value too.

I am a regular visitor I have never had a bad meal. If I had to be critical, it can sometimes be a little cramped, that's only because the place is so popular.

We've been to this café quite a few times for breakfast, and it's quite nice. It's nothing fantastic or extraordinary, but nice enough, and it's handy for me as it's a local cafe. However the staff are only so/so, and it's not a reasonable prices, it's expensive for what you get. You have to wait ages to get served, usually... More

My partner and I always head to the Curious Cafe for celebratory breakfasts (birthdays, anniversaries etc) and have never been disappointed! Their veggie sausages are amazing and their steak breakfast keeps my boyfriend happy! Love this place!

If your looking for a top quality brekky then this is the place. Always a good atmosphere. The outside seating at the back is really nice place to enjoy a quite breakfast.never had an issue always enjoy it. About £10 for a big breakfast but worth every penny !!

Stopped in at the Curious Cafe for brunch on a Sunday morning. The place was pretty well packed which is always a good sign. We managed to get a table and despite being really busy, our order was taken promptly. Coffees arrived quickly and were HOT (yes!!! not something you can always rely on) and good. Our breakfasts (traditional bacon,... More

Well what can I say. Stopped off prior to a long bike ride and smashed an egg and bacon butty. Super fresh bread. Bacon and egg cooked to perfection. Friendly staff and quick service.
