Plenty of choice and good portions. We were served quickly despite there being a lot of customers at the time. Would recommend checking the opening times before turning up though - they seem to be closed most evenings.

We shared a meatloaf sandwich and were glad we did as it was huge. We also stopped here the next day for coffee which was made to order and delicious as well.

We had the best lunch! Try the BBLT (bacon blue cheese Lettuce and tomato). Chips come with your sandwich and don't forget to get a cookie too. Fast friendly service.

Trinks has amazing meals, coffees and teas, and excellent bakery items! My favorite is the breakfast, but the dinners are also super amazing. They have added many new healthy options too such as the Lentil Breakfast (and Lunch) bowl, and the veggie burger, and gluten...More
