Quick lunch here with friends. Good choice on menu, so much to choose from, so really caters for everyone (even vegetarians BenR!) Staff friendly and service good. Food nice, not exceptional but certainly no problems. Well priced.

This is a French themed restaurant so they don't acknowledgement a vegetarian breakfast. The waiter was very surprised when we asked but they came up with something of sorts. Veggie breakfast not on the menu.More

Do not like how Tripadvisor does not allow for a "Good" rating. I don't believe this Cafe is "very good" - so had to mark it (reluctantly) as average. Primarily let down by poor quality Sausage and strangely cooked mushrooms on a breakfast plate. BLT...More
