Perfect breakfast! Myself and my daughter visited this quaint little cafe for breakfast and we weren’t disappointed. I ordered a breakfast sandwich of bacon and double eggs, never have I been asked before how I’d like my bacon! I asked for crispy and it came...cooked to perfection! The eggs were the best I’ve EVER had! My daughter opted for poached eggs and again they were cooked to perfection! Staff are welcoming and friendly. All in all a great find!!!!!!More

Popped in for breakfast, I had a full English asked to swap the black pudding for a hash brown but the man serving said not really as it’s a bit of a faff? So I got a extra slice of bacon😊. My wife had a...round of toast and jam. One small pot of tea and a fresh orange juice. The bill was £14:35 the breakfast was above average and the service was average.More

Small friendly team running this place. Fantastic breakfast, asking the details i have never been asked previously, only previously having to specify myself. Perfect experience. Cannot more highly recommend. Well done.

We saw this on trip advisor and decided to go on a Sunday. We were staying for the weekend for the xmas market and wanted breakfast outside. It was a small but very friendly cafe. We had full veggie breakfast and a breakfast roll. Fresh...orange juice and coffees. It was all cooked freshly so you need to wait a few minutes but it was worth the wait. Lovely breaky and just what you needed to set you up for the day. Great place to visit but as it's small it can get busy.More
