This place is super, food is amazing and freshly cooked. Really friendly staff and quick service. Waffles are divine and children are very welcome, high chairs are available. The restaurant has places tables inside and outside. Booking is advisable. Highly recommend it.

I've been before and rate the setting service and waffle based menu highly. However, today a friend ordered a hot savoury waffle. The cheese ham and mushroom were hot but the waffle itself stone cold. Can that be right?

We have been here twice now and both times the food has been amazing! The first time we went we had a sweet waffle and the second time we went first thing in the morning for breakfast. I would gladly go back here again!!

Family and friends love this place. Great to support a local independent restaurant. Both sweet and savoury toppings available. Lovely unique setting. It's always busy and sometimes there is a bit of a wait for a table. Well worth a visit

Yes you can if you eat/stay in the patio area. The dogs need to be on a short leash and stay off the tables & chairs. The restaurant are happy to provide a dog bowl with water.
