Stopped off at Evie's for some breakfast after seeing the £5 sign outside and I have to say it's well worth every penny and then some. All freshly cooked and came with a drink also. Lovely staff, very welcoming. All in all, a very nice cafe.

Very surprised to find that our feelings about this tea room are not shared by the majority. Perhaps they were having an off day. However, when we were there only one other table was occupied and the waitress spent a lot of time talking to them and ignoring us. We learned about her recent holiday and various domestic arrangements but... More
