Stopped for coffee and a cake. Great coffee, decaf latte. And a very nice gluten free cake. Worth a visit. Very friendly staff.

Generous serving of very nice bacon, bacon makes you happy! Just a bit greasy on the bacon cooking but good all the same. I would go back.

Such a cute place. Animal friendly. Outside. The prices are reasonable. It of a High standard. Staff are friendly and offer suggestions. The coffee is worth stopping for. Didn't feel crowded in as the place was full of people enjoying a meal
