This is a great place to grab a coffee, breakfast, or lunch. Healthy, tasty food at good prices. We arrived when they were just closing, but the staff kindly served us.

Good food but nothing special. A local reccommended this restaurant so maybe we caught them on a bad night.

I had lunch here, it was nicely cooked, served with complimentary salad, and not too expensive. The coffee was hot and well made. For a quick, cheap lunch in clean , friendly premises, this is the place to go

After a disappointing wait in another cafe we found this little gem just up the street. Fun clean relaxed decor. A great selection from the chiller and a great menu. I had a smoked salmon quiche which had a Qwerky chutney on the side. Baffled at why this place isn't rated much higher!! We have found a little gem :)... More

Went to Cafe Blue for a morning drink, I ordered a milkshake and got a watered down flavorless lukewarm concoction. The barrister was unfriendly and couldn't even offer a smile, which is rather unfortunate. Overall the experience was average and I wouldn't go back as their service was average and the drink even more less appealing.

We ordered the big breakfast to share with scrambled eggs. Breakfast came out - food looked lovely - but with fried eggs which we don't enjoy. They were also undercooked with the whites still runny ok top. We asked if they could be redone as scrambled as we had initially asked for - and the waitress said the chef refused.... More

Crepes, bacon & banana were yummy but was disappointed with the eggs benedict; the hollandaise sauce was watery & tasteless and the eggs overcooked. Benefit of the doubt that the chef was having an off day as other reviews seem to rave about them. Coffee not too flash, need to ask for a double shot when ordering large whereas in... More

The Eggs benedict are great and they will even do half servings - I can't eat w whole one. Also their soups and pies are superb in fact most of their food is great.
