Becoming a regular haunt for breakfast and lunch. The pancakes are delish and the sandwich portions are huge. Highly recommended with great staff too.

Fabulous little cafe, if you sit outside your fur friends are welcome and are giving water. They have amazing cakes. They make a fantastic chicken,stuffing and cranberry mayo roll which is a personal favourite. Very nice staff.

Have eaten here several times - the food is really excellent and well priced, with friendly and fast service. It is small with the tables close to one another, but other than that there is nothing to fault it. A great breakfast choice!

Recently enjoyed Sunday brunch here. Had to wait a while for a table as it's very popular and a fairly small place but it was worth the wait. We had the lovely fry and the soup of the day with tea and coffee, all excellent....More

Great coffee. Very friendly and prompt service. Lovely food (duh!). Try the Eggs Benedict and if you’re really hungry start with the fresh fruit smoothie.
