Nipped in here for a late breakfast...clean, friendly and close to the centre of Leamington Spa. Basic cafe environment serving great food. Could be rated as cheap eats, depending on what or how much you order. Bacon sandwich full of bacon and 2 coffees were £5.

This place is a cross between the morning after breakfast and the builders breakfast type cafe. It serves up one of the best full English breakfast's and many other variants and also some of the best cup of tea you could possibly wish for. The staff are really great great with the kids and very kind and thoughtful when serving... More

We went here for breakfast and it was very very busy. Food was very good. Staff varied from being ultra helpful to not very helpful. We were upstairs and they didn't really seem to have enough staff to cover such a busy period. Maybe it's because it's small but busy and just not enough room.

Been here on two occasions now and definitely will return. They make a truly great breakfast which is super tasty. Very reasonably priced. Coffee is pretty decent as well. Only area they slightly drop the ball is tinned tomatoes? Surely fresh could be better.

We popped in yesterday morning for a sausage sandwich and a cup of tea. The sandwich was freshly made from thick white bread, and the tea came in a large mug. Perfect. It was exactly what we wanted, and very good value.

So, a challenge, when you don't eat breakfast when *everyone* eats breakfast e.g. after 2pm and you are hungry and looking for an oasis of food to satisfy the need, then don't despair! We found it...in this off-the-main-road little den of deliciousness. We asked for and received two *very* tasty breakfast sandwiches, enjoyed at a table outside on what was... More

My wife and I popped in for lunch because we'd heard that they operate a Pending Meals scheme and we wanted to support that. When we got there service was friendly and quick, and their 'famous' milkshakes lived up to the promise. The food (I had an all day breakfast) was great too. We'll definitely be going back

Four of us had the most amazing value lunch here. Just like your Mum or favourite Auntie makes food... cooked and served up by a wonderful team. Incredible value for money and a nice choice of food.
