A lovely cafe home made food absolutely delicious staff are friendly communicative will definitely go again when I am in the area

Great cafe with a cabinet full of too many scrummy choices, all perfection to eat. Only downside is the cafe is all hard surfaces so very noisy & echos & if there's a loud talker as when we were there the whole cafe hears their...conversation.More

I went to this cafe at about 7.15am and there was already several customers in there. There is a lot of food to choose from and the cabinets were full at that early hour. I had a savoury muffin which was real tasty and large....The food seems to be well priced.More

Great place to meet up with friends for lunch. A better selection of cabinet food you probably won't find, great coffee too. A mixture of food on our table from savoury to sweet,no complaints. Very pleasant staff, no wonder tables in this cafe fill up...fast.More

Lucky the other passengers in the car had been to this café before otherwise I would have missed it. The selection was impressive and generous portions. Nicely presented. I felt sorry for the staff member making coffees, I don't know how she keeps up, also...did the till and tables as well, Incredible service by her I say.More
