I like this café, the staff are friendly and a good quick service. It’s not too expensive but usually quite busy.

We both had the mac n cheese with chips. They were both very pleasant but nothing startling. Chips nicely cooked, mac n cheese was nice, plenty cheesy creamy sauce, we don’t like it served stodgy which it definitely wasn’t. Would have preferred a stronger/punchier cheese...More
