Love going here and having breakfast, the omelette is the best and lunch. Don’t recommend the new potato skins, they were pretty tasteless. But everything else is great!

The staff were very friendly and the atmosphere was ok but the food was very disappointing. We don’t mind paying for quality but $23 for seafood chowder which measured 1cm deep in the plate and had 1 mussel, 1 piece of surimi and a couple...of pieces of fish - total rip-off. The broccoli salad was swimming in an over-powering blue cheese dressing which spoilt the whole dish.More

Friendly welcome, decent coffee & a great cheese scone made this a great place for a driving break! We didn’t see the garden at first so sat inside but the outside looked like a nice place to sit.

We had an early lunch here. The outside garden area is lovely at this time of the year. 2 people had the scones. One savoury and one date scone. Both were nice but a bit crumbly and because the butter was so hard it was...difficult to spread on the scone. I had the GF frittata which was lovely and served with chutney. The tea was served in a lovely setting of tea pot and cup on a small tray. The iced mocha with cream and ice cream was awesome. Recommended if you’re in Cambridge and looking for a light lunch. They do have cooked meals as well.More
