We are a small, friendly, American diner style cafe serving delicious homemade dishes. Our quiches and paninis are renowned in the area as are our fabulous cakes and pastries, all handmade by French owner, Richard. Snacks include bacon and/or sausage sandwiches, fruit teacakes and a fabulous selection of homemade fruit or cheese scones. Our special blend of coffee brings customers from miles around and receives daily compliments from all nationalities. Fancy a cold drink? Why not try our frappes or healthy yet delicious smoothies, the ever popular thick shake (huge choice of flavours - all colour and additive-free) or one of our chocolate bar shakes. All available to take-out also.
