5 of us arrived just after 10am on a Sunday. The reception was not the warmest and we were initially turned away as we had not booked. Then as we were walking away a group of six got up to leave, as there obviously was space now we were offered the table. Then we were told the five of us... More

What a wonderful family breakfast we enjoyed at not bread alone. With varying diets they managed to feed us all with our plates evidence of this. The coffees were deliciously hot and so good we all had seconds. Can thoroughly recommend this wonderful cafe.

We stumbled upon this cafe by chance, we were in the area looking for a costume & for no ourselves hungry so we stopped in here.

Have been a few times as we live quite close to not bread alone just to give it extra chances to make sure it wasn't just an off day for them. Each time we went the coffee was terrible and food not much better. I also got a take away coffee once and the coffee shot was pre poured.... Won't... More

Friends found this place for us after recently moving in to the area so we popped in for lunch. The staff were great and the service from them was too. There are lots of nice options on the food and wine lists. All 4 of us enjoyed our meal. Nice in winter in the sun out the back. A nice... More

The service is excellent -- the owner is a gem, and her wait staff are marvelous. I am less enthusiastic about the food. It's reasonable -- nothing more.

Came here on a cold winter morning for breakfast, had the pancakes with maple syrup, the maple syrup was very nice. Also had the corn with bacon, wasn't my favourite as I have a sweet tooth...

Extremely BAD customer service from the apparent owner of the place, wait time extremely long and till date never been to a place with such a horrible service. Do yourself a favor and go somewhere else, plenty of other places in that vicinity. The owner needs to get some basic speaking skills.
