Popped in here recently for a quick bite while shopping and the food was delicious. It's in such a handy location. Will definitely visit again for a proper lunch as the selection all looked fantastic.

I love this place, staff are very friendly and efficient, food is always fresh, home made and tastes great. Its a wee bit expensive though. I think they should do evening meals too :)

Food very much overpriced, quality of food disappointing I would describe it as a salty cheese mess, wouldn't recommend and will not use again. Friendly staff though. .
