Been popping in here over the years and has always remained the same. Service is quick and cheerful, food comes out piping hot and with a smile. They are quick to fill up the sauces, salt and pepper. Only downside, is that you order and pay before finding a seat, which can be a pain when they are busy. Dont... More

Called in for breakfast one Saturday morning, the first time in about two years. We weren't surprised to find the quality, quantity and great value has not changed.

My daughters fave place! Good old fashioned greasy spoon. But they also do a big range of salads, lasagne etc... It's often our Sunday brunch place. Big plate of well cooked full English breakfast (with chips or bubble!) Always busy, but always manage to get a table. Well worth a visit if you want an old school fry up!!

Staff attentive, always quick with service, food always hot & delicious, ex value for money. Toast to come with breakfast not 10 mins before would be better.

Regular customer here. Serves amazing food, just goes to show by how busy it is every time I go, but they still never fail to serve up as fast as they can. Big portions all cooked to your liking and also at great prices.

The food here taste OK, nothing fancy. The atmosphere is ok, If you want food that's worth the money, go to cafe1 in bury park. The food is proper over priced and I could make better breakfast than them.
