We were looking for a cafe for breakfast and decided on this place. My wife had a great breakfast and I had a fantastic Croque Monsieur. The menu was quite extensive and there was a great range of cakes. A nice surprise.

1 meat and one vegetarian full English breakfast. Both tasty and served reasonably promptly by polite staff in nice surroundings.
