The cafe decor doesn't do the great food and coffee justice. Its one of my favorites for a coffee catchup with friends.

I thoroughly enjoyed the stop at Mr Pilkington's. The choice of food is very, very good and includes pies, sandwiches (all types), cakes and savouries. I was very impressed and had the mussel fritter which was delicious - you distinctly taste the mussel meat. I...More

We have eaten here before, the food is always fresh, and appears to be home baked and with different variations than most places. The wedges with cheese were awesome, freshly made, great value and plentiful. The coffee is some of the best in town, not...More

I haven't been here for about a year. By the looks of things, the business has changed hands. I used to love the food from sandwiches to muffins to hot food. To be honest, I had to bypass my 'usual' cream-cheese muffin as it just...More

It's a large cafe with a great selection of food but most days it's full and is a nightmare to dine in there. The tables are so close to together that you can't manoeuvre through the place. There's no prices on anything and the large...More
