Delicious coffees and baked goods served on a lovely patio by the river. Very reasonably priced. Didn't try the egg dishes, but they looked delicious. Definitely the place for breakfast.

Glad we consulted Trip Advisor when we were looking for a nice cafe. Bakery on the Water just hit the spot! Lovely cup of coffee and warm, fresh scones with jam and cream. Nicely decorated too.

Would highly recommend the cream tea here so much better than small Talk tea room which was the worst cream tea ever. Definitely choose this place. The people are very polite too.
