Haven't been here for a while as I don't live in the area, pleased to say it's just as good as ever! Great breakfasts, love the milkshakes. If I had to find one thing to mark down on it was the bread hardly had any butter on it, but I'm not going to mark them down for just that. Friendly... More

A great place to have quick breakfast with a lovely hot drink! Been here many times and they have always been good - both food and service... I had dinner once along with my wife and that was good too... Additionally, they have decent veggie options..

Truly good value, pleasant surround although I found the tables a bit small. Lots to choose from the menu at very good value. The staff were polite and explained their menu very well.

Born into a south Indian family that too really south of India which is Kerala and again south of Kerala, breakfast was always a tasty affair typically vegetarian. My personal favorite being "puttum payarum parpadakavum" a divine trinity i should say. Our cousin took us to this Turkish restaurant for an "English Breakfast" and it was good. The even had...

Normally I would get a take away from here. But today thought why not eat in for a change and was the best decision we made. Visited with family food as always on point cooked fresh and full of flavour. Other local restaurants should learn from Cafe 104 especially the service always friendly and welcoming. This place is a must... More

I don't know about the recent negative reviews, but I visited in June and again tonight (ok I don't get out much) and the food and service were as good as ever. It is definitely not as busy as it used to be, you can now get a table in a Saturday night, but it is just as friendly as... More
