Superb Veggie breakfast ! Very fresh and tasty, it's a clean and light cheerful place. Go on a Saturday when there is the vintage fair and plant man outside ! Really nice vibe. Lots of old cameras and vinyl for sale too on Saturdays.

Went here for a hungover breakfast and ordered the big one (£8.50). Worth every penny. Very good quality food and service with a smile.

Absolutely loved the vegan brekkie, some great tastes in there! I know my husband was a little gutted that there was no white toast with his full English, but our fault really for not checking it came with white bread not granary bread I suppose!...More

I have been on The Post Box many times with my social friends to have social conversation with coffee and cake. The decoration of books inside this cafe looks unique and impressive. It looks busy and nice place to spend couple of hours.
