A busy restaurant with lots of tables. Taken to window table and order promptly taken. Service fast and efficient. Staff all appeared to know their role and was able to deliver. Food excellent, reasonably priced. Will definitely return.

Never lets me down with prompt service, freshly cooked breakfast and the best coffee. Sometimes go in later for coffee and scones or even lunch and am always very well pleased. Can’t be beat for quality, great staff and great service.
