Great and friendly service, freshly prepared using fresh products. Looks and tastes great, just look at the home made cakes. Take away service and good prices with a warm welcome.

Good hearty breakfast, great value. We were staying elsewhere but didn't fancy breakfast there at £12.50 each, so were glad to have found the CC.

I took my daughter out for shopping and lunch trip, we decided to go to this cafe, the service was very friendly, lots of options for food not just set items so we could choose exactly what we wanted. Freshly cooked and sensibly priced, i would recommend this cafe.
