We were attracted by the 2 for 1 offer on full English breakfast on Saturday and Sunday - fabulous food, a clean friendly restaurant. There is an interesting story behind the restaurant that explains the photo mural on the wall. Ten out of ten

A very friendly cafe with a great menu. Plenty of choice on the menu for food and drinks. Great staff, who couldn’t have been more helpful. Today was my second visit and I hope to return soon.

We were in Dorchester for two nights, staying at the Premier Inn, but wanted to breakfast somewhere a little more flexible than the PI restaurant. This cafe was just the ticket, I would recommend it thoroughly. Generous portions and friendly staff, serving food of quality.
