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

Food quality is great but on occasions the staff are miserable.. the lady behind the counter never smiles and gives you the impression that she's doing you a favour. Plus need to pick your times when eating.. To avoid the screaming kids.. Little angels 😄

I haven't tried the Turkish restaurant that is here in the evening but have had lunch here several times and the food has always been excellent. Really good value for money. I love the scampi and the jacket potatoes and hamburgers are great. The tables are pretty close together so it's not the place to go for a quiet meal... More

My daughter and myself visited here today to try the all day cooked breakfast. Having read the reviews we were not disappointed. Generous portions of toast and tea/coffee included with all set breakfast options. We opted for the vegetarian which came quickly and was fresh and hot. Friendly service from all staff no sticky tables or dirty stained cutlery. Clean... More

They did not accept gourmet member card despite us calling in before asking about it as the person took the call was not there. Did not offer any discount apart from 5% which is standard. Then said the card machine not working so had to cash. The food was average
