We very much liked the cheery “good morning” on entry to this café. The coffee was made just as I like it. The place is bright and clean and has plenty of room for pushchairs and people. Nice selection of cakes and pastries.

Popped in for a couple of scones to take to a friends for afternoon tea. Only cheese scones left and I was charged £1.50 EACH. Regular size, nothing special, in fact they were dry and tasted like they were left over from the day before.More

This is a small cake and coffee house with the bakery at the back so you can see where your food has been made! It has a few tables outside in summer. All scones, cakes etc are baked on the premises.
