I loved this little Cafe. The welcoming smiles and warmth were a pleasure. The breakfast is indeed lovely and will keep you going for the day. There is something for everybody and the cream tea is to be recommended.

Cosy friendly atmosphere. Standard fayre, but nicely presented and served with a smile. Reasonably priced with a good selection of beverages and eats.

Can't really say too much as only went in for a ice cream. The staff seemed pleasant enough. The place looked clean and tidy.
