We like to use this cafe for lunch when we are in town. It's an independant. Food is always freshly cooked. I recommend anything that has the sausages or bacon as Mr Bird, the proprietor and chef, uses Powters Newmarket sausages and Wiltshire Bacon. My...More

Had a family meal, and 3 baked potatoes and a panini. Really quite average, and lacking in flavour. Seemed to be overstaffed, lots of people stood around watching the customers eat.

The wait staff were disinterested, the tables were greasy, the food was boring. The coffee was so bad! Never again. Try the Scandinavian Coffee House instead!

Awful place. I think the owner has to rethink his concept of customer service and employ some other people. Rude waitress that acted like we were inconveniencing her ! WE are giving THEM business. Nothing amazing inside and food wasn't anything out of this world....More
