This place reminded me of my mother's kitchen. Wholesome Food at it's best. Great breakfast menu, served until well after 12 midday. Other items on the menu also looked good. Good value for money. Tea in your own teapot like Granma used to make.

Had an impressive (huge) omelette and chips here. Fast service but food all properly cooked. Cafe is pleasantly quiet being outside the main drag of shopping areas and lovely informal feel to it. Nice.
