Pretty ignorant staff, bad coffee and numerous bad reviews on here. This is a place that rests on the laurels of its location with no designs on customer service. Go to coffee #1 over the road instead

Lovely cafe in the park. And excellent value. But only complaint asked butter free and they put butter on it. So being British I continue and didn't say anything. And it is only minor. To be honest I didn't need the roll filling was ample. Giant sausage loads of bacon and egg. Yummy in my tummy

First off - food and coffee here is fine. No complaints at all for a visit on that basis. Staff mixed. Some great. Some not so much. Visited today, in the rain, after walking a baby to sleep for an hour. They were soon to close & an employee dragged a large bin across the floor next to said baby,... More

Called in a couple of times for a drink. Always find the staff friendly and helpful, always busy. Great location. Food always looks tempting and well presented. Take away trade is constant... a good advert ! Will be back.

Missed my breakfast and more importantly my coffee. Had to find somewhere on my way to work. What a setting, beautiful. Staff where very friendly smiley and chatty. My order was taken and 5 minutes later eating a fantastic chicken and bacon baguette with an americano. Only wish i started this side of cardiff more often.

Meal, atmosphere, service - all pretty poor and a genuinely unfriendly place. Rests on the laurels of it's location proudly serving some of the worst coffee in town.

This great little cafe. Has inside and outside seating. Good range of hot food, ice creams, cakes. etc. Price is pretty good too. I had the burger and me and my daughter both enjoyed it. Regular ice cream eaters here to. Good for pet owners as they have water bowls and treats for dogs. Good quick service.

My niece and nephew were visiting us for the weekend and we decided to stop here for lunch in between the planned activities. The staff were very friendly and it didn't take very long for the pizzas to be brought out. They were absolutely delicious and we sat in the back seating area. Such a great little place and perfect... More
