Popped in for breakfast on a Saturday morning, both of us had veggie breakfasts, couldn’t fault them. Lovely meal, friendly and helpful staff, and decent prices. Will definitely visit again.

This is my go-to place for a GF lunch when in Lichfield as they are very allergy aware. One of the few cafes I know that can do a GF sausage sandwich. Popular so be prepared to wait but it's worth it.
