Passing through with our grandchildren we stopped here for a light lunch. It was very pleasant and well presented. The children wanted different things and different drinks but all was accommodated without any problem. Nice coffee in a decent size cup.

Milkshakes!! I visited a few months ago with some friends. The layout of the place is lovely, very open and spacious, and I had a great milkshake, one of the best I've ever had. The food was also great, very impressed overall.

Friendly staff, good food, generous portions. This cafe also does Sunday lunch which I'm told is very enjoyable although I haven't tried it myself. The cakes are delicious and lunches too with specials on the blackboard.
