A beautiful location which is completely forgotten once ordering food which is basic at best, staff are unfriendly and not obliging.food is expensive, only go to the shop for produce anything else is a disappointment and will leave you still hungry and unable to buy...another meal elsewhere.second time this has happened.never been charged extra for scrambled eggs due to an extra egg? Wake up Florence?More

A lovely place to relax and enjoy excellent food. We had pain au chocolat and pain aux raisins and coffee. The best we've had outside of France and the cafe is a great place to relax with a nice atmosphere. The owner, Sharyn, is lovely....Really great products in the Foodstore too!More

Both the Eggs Benedict and 3 Egg Omlete were delicious, hearty, and excellent value. The service was friendly and efficient. We sat outside in the garden, with our well behaved pug in tow, who was welcomed heartily. This was a big plus for us. A...big thumbs up!More

I was initially ignored then served abruptly by the “rude” staff member also. Love the store but won’t be returning.

What a great spot for lunch on a cold July day. Food was simple and delicious, staff really engaging and a great wee shop attached as well. Good value, nice atmosphere, highly recommended!

I visited with my nephew James and his wife Francesca Voza and was very pleased with the high standard of service from the staff, the delicious cakes and English tea and selection of various Jams, pickles, mustards, wines and other hand made delicacies. Another little...gem.More

We struck a women with grey hair pulled back, wearing glasses, (if she wasn't the owner I'm stunned that they would keep her on) taking the food orders, when a friend asked for Bacon & Eggs, scrabbled or pouched he didn't mind, she rudely said..."Read the Menu" then looked at me and said can you order for him, I was taken aback but knew what she was wanting, so I said "could he have eggs poached & and add bacon" which was exactly what she wanted him to say, at that stage I should have said don't worry we will go elsewhere. This attitude has obviously rubbed off on the staff we met, as they were pretty frosty as well. Not to worry we won't be back and will certainly advise others who don't wish to be insulted to stay away too. Food was ok but not that amazing that you would agree to be insulted to get it.More

We have no one with red hair who works here and there are locks on the toilet doors - are you sure you have the right place?
