Salmon and scrambled eggs served with cold but over cooked eggs - complained to staff on duty as I paid on the way out but no offer to reduce bill etc. Better choice would of been the more traditional cafes/coffee houses on the same street

We called in on the off chance of having a early evening meal, the staff were friendly and courteous, a table was found and had a lovely meal, the roast salmon was cooked to perfection. Well worth a visit.
