Visited with my sister and our babies yesterday. We take up a bit of room and cause a bit of chaos sometimes with two buggies but the lady working couldn't have been more helpful, she really is lovely. The food was lovely too :)

Visited here twice, once for breakfast takeaway and once for sit in breakfast. First time was unwelcoming with middle aged assistant more interested in talking to her friend than accommodating customers. Bacon roll was dry and coffee lukewarm. Visited second time and experience and fare...More

Jimmy, Sorry for the delay in responding to your comment. I am really disappointed that you were not delighted with the food and the service. We spend quite a bit of time training to make sure the service is good as with the food and...More

We ordered two baked potatos & both were raw. If none were available they should have just said rather than serving food that wasn't really edible. Nice service & cafe otherwise.

There is nowhere better to be put at ease before taking your theory test than the Cafe Caan. The lass that serves us our delicious Mocha and Coffee with our breakfast rolls was chatty and engaging without invading our space. So good we had another...More

Popped in for a warm cause it's freezing out side. Really nice and warm inside, very cosy sofas. Coffee was very nice and you get free wifi. Well worth a visit on a cold frosty morning. 10/10.More
