Clean plate no grease, hot and fresh. Very very good. Only down side is the smell of cooking will linger on my clothes. But there is seating outside. Excellent customer service.

Not been here for many many years. Polite service. Food pretty good. Sat upstairs - not really very cosy - could be made more ‘inviting’.

Not the best cafe in the world but certainly not the worst. The cooked breakfast is ok but the brown sauce is the worst. It's like really vinegary water and not pleasant. The fresh made coffee is good though and reasonably priced.
