This place does the biggest and best breakfast I've had in a long time. Lovely little place with nice staff and querky set up. We can't wait to return. We had the full breakfast but word of warning you won't want lunch!

I'm a vegetarian and have never had a problem here. They are always willing to cater for all tastes and if you ask them they will always do you something not on the menu.
