We visited on a Saturday morning and expected it to be packed from the reviews, but was surprised when it was quite empty. We sat in one of the back rooms which was nicely decorated as is the rest of the place. I went straight for the large breakfast with no tomato and no beans (which was adhered to perfectly... More

Always have a fabulous meal here, but have finally had enough of the really miserable manager who really needs to learn some basic manners and basic people skills. Honestly if you don't like your job then get out of the kitchen or get on some anti-depressants!

This place gets very busy, you can lounge on a leather sofa or sit at a table. The food is very fresh and nicely plated, and not a bad price for what you get. The staff are very cheery and helpful. It is obvious how popular it is as 7 people were waiting to be seated. If you can't get... More

Have been in here a number of times for coffee and for lunch. A nice friendly service in quite a busy atmosphere. Prices are good. You can even pick up a bag of used coffee grounds for your garden!

Lovely cafe, perfect place to stop for cake and coffee. I would say though, the younger staff were amazing all smiles and willing to help. An older man (who I can only assume is the manager) was rather stressed and was getting a bit irritated with the staff trying to help him. As we were seated close to the door... More

Went for a light lunch and as the place was busy were told to wait by the counter, another party came in and were seated before us!! Ordered the fishcakes as shown on the specials menu. After waiting for a while the waitress told us that they had finished, there was nothing else that suited that day as most of... More

This cafe boasts an impressive variety of beautiful homemade cakes - we had one involving pistachio, coconut, and orange, and a peanut butter chocolate brownie. The chocolate and Guiness one also looked very special, we shall have to come back to sample more. Very reasonably priced. The main menu looked interesting and tasty too. I accidentally left my phone down... More

Very nice coffee shop which is nicely furnished and decorated. Nice staff and good coffee. A nice place to sit and relax. Seats outside for when the weather is good and plenty of room inside. Would return.
