Always lovely to come here for a coffee or some food! Attention around peak times (especially lunch) as this place gets super busy! Got a nice play area for the little humans too 😊👍🏻

What a wonderful option to go here if you are in transit to the airport! It is literally just a 5min drive from the airport. There's a good sized car park there at the café. Lots of gorgeous and delicious items to choose from either...More

Had to fill in time before boarding a plane. What a lovely little café. And the fruit market beside it is really good too. Very good for coffee & nibbles or bigger meals. Worth a look.

We called in for a quick snack and coffee. Very busy but we were served quickly and the food and coffee was very good.

Just a quick breakfast before shopping, service was good and it was warm on a cold morning. Hot chocolate was great. Mushrooms on toast was very good, although I had expected something quite different (creamy mushrooms). Portion size was just right.

The meal was average and turned up cold so had to be returned. The food was tasty although the bacon was undercooked.

I went to buy avocadoes. Didn't get the avo's but did have a lovely flat white, which could have been a bit hotter, and a divine bowl of chia granola, yoghurt, fruit and lemon curd - really fresh and very yummy. Other menu items coming...More
