Best cheese scone for miles, good coffee and pleasant staff. Cafe was reasonably busy but coffee came out quickly. Nice relaxed atmosphere.

Popped in for brunch as discovered here though the entertainment book. Lovely staff, appreciated the blankets for customers to use. Toast with eggs on toast was tiny, very stingy. Absolutely nothing keto or low carb so I ordered from the sides menu (which apparently isn't...allowed but they let me) & was charged $15 for 'eggs on toast' even though my bacon, halloumi & hollandaise came to $12.50 on the menu. I argued it but to no avail, ridiculous.More

Hard to find something to say that hasnt been said before. Great food, friendly service, dog friendly and lovely setting away from noise of main road. Interesting collection of items in the store

What a wee gem. Lovely friendly staff with great food and a wonderful setting and atmosphere. Well worth the drive out of the city for a weekend brunch

Usually drive past but today we stopped for a late lunch. So pleased we did. Brick Mill Cafe has shot to the top of my list of favorite cafe's. I had the best ever French Toast. My partner had Eggs Florentine that he said was...very yummy. The servers and baristas were helpful and chatty and the venue comfy and clean. Go see for yourself, it is worthwhile.More

We booked a large table for a family birthday. The reserved sign was barely visible so two random strangers came and sat with our group table. We had to go to the counter to order - no service even though we were a large group....I ordered a toastie which was advertised with chips. After a long wait I was served two small very flat toasted sandwiches with no chips. After complaining, I was told only child toasties come with chips. The service was non existent and I’ll never waste my time going to this cafe again. The service and attitude were terrible.More

Service average, called in on mother's day, lots of empty tables only to be told bookings only which is understandable for this day. No sign out, no offer of cabinet food. It might be a good cafe but who would know as no offer to...serve us.More
