This is one of our favourites in Durham. Lovely selection of meals, breakfasts, homemade pies and quiches and fabulous cream scones. All at a very reasonable price.

My boyfriend and I go here regularly for breakfast. The full English breakfast is excellent and reasonably priced, the atmosphere is lovely (especially on the quieter mornings), and the waiting staff is wonderful!

Homely little cafe, was a little noisy and seemed somewhat chaotic. We had a lunch of homemade quiche with salad and soup. Cakes looked good although didn't partake. Nice little place for a reasonable priced homemade meal.
