Excellent cafe with great coffee/tea and lovely home cooked food. Full breakfast was excellent and you were given more tea that you could drink.

I went here with my mum the other day for coffee. The experience was great. The staff were lovely and the coffee was magnificent. But the cheesecake was best of all. I will definitely be coming back here the next time I'm in town.
