We had a very pleasant lunch at Elizabeth's. The Goats Cheese tart was on the specials board and made too order, very good portion, the pastry was I believe pre-cooked, a shame but understandable in a busy Cafe. Very good service and yummy homemade cakes....More

Average tea, and nothing special about the cakes, though efficient service and clean premises. Only takes cash, so no plastic either which seems odd these days.
