We went here twice over our stay. The date scones were really good and the coffee great. A good selection of home made cakes, muffins, salads, cheese rolls etc is on offer.

I went for eggs Benedict with bacon because it is my favourite breakfast for a treat. Service was prompt, coffee great and the venue cute and quirky. However the ‘main event’ of my breakfast was a let down. The eggs were slightly over cooked, which...More
