Its not often you find a cafe anymore that makes its hollandaise sauce from scratch. With an added extra of delicious rosemary potatoes and a generous portion of bacon The Roosts Eggs Benedict was one of best i have ever tried. The coffee is very generous ( their med is actually a large ) and a large open space so you dont feel like your eating out of the laps of other customers.

We stopped here for lunch. Asian staff who served, could barely speak any English. Everyone's food was served with burnt tops. Both pies had burnt pastry on top. The crossiant was also burnt on top, however grated cheese was still unmelted & ham was cold. Need to lift their game I'm afraid.
