What a fab find! We were looking for a light lunch & this place was just the ticket. I have food allergies & they were so helpful. They do vegan cakes too, which was a bonus. Well done!

Friendly waitress service, both in the cafe itself and also in the area outside in the covered part of Duchess Court. Lots of delicious home made food and sweets. Food can be eaten in or taken out.

A really relaxed vibe. Staff were friendly and looked like they enjoyed being at work. The food was delicious as were the cakes. Lovely tea served in china cups and saucers.

We popped into Janie's for a spot of lunch after we had been to Broddick Castle. The small cafe was busy (which i think is always a good sign) but we were able to get a table. We ordered sandwiches and drinks, our order was...More
