Food is good here, but my breakfast was cold when received it. I took it back and the chef, to test the temp prodded the sausage with his fingers. Happy it seemed cold said he would make me another breakfast. I dread to think what would have happened if he disagreed with me. After the second attempt, which was fine... More

I took my very nervous dog here today to get him used to a public environment. It proved to be a little noisy for him so we didn't stay too long. I got to have a lovely coffee and Honey got some sausages! Extremely friendly and attentive staff. Cute and quirky decor, and a bright, welcoming space. Will be back... More

Fantastic choice of breakfast...we opted for 2 full Scottish breakfasts, 2 porridge and one homemade pancakes. The full breakfast was excellent. The porridge was huge, topped with toasted seeds and berries and yogurt with honey on the side. The pancakes were delicious with maple syrup and bacon. We had flat whites and a big pot of tea. We really enjoyed... More

I love this place - it's quirky, friendly, warm and individual NOT another anodyne chain! The food is always high quality (fabulous bacon rolls!), the prices are very very reasonable, and the smiley staff seem to be happy to be there. I must add, that I very rarely enjoy a cup of tea anywhere, as I'm so bloomin' fussy -... More

I love piece box. From breakfast, to brunch, lunch or just coffee and a cake it's always a treat. Family friendly, dog friendly, friendly staff, great decor and the most amazing food. Plus you never feel rushed out the door. Smoothies, nachos, French toast, brownies are all personal favourites but I've never had anything that wasn't fab.

Great little place to wile away a couple of hours and get some great food in the process. Staff were friendly and didn't rush us off our table which is always appreciated.

We go often. It is lovely. All the food is good and the servings are very generous. But it is the cakes that make this such a treat....they are fantastic! One slice between two is maybe a good idea!
