This family owned cafe is a very special place to stop. The homemade soups are always wonderful, as is everything they dish up. The mushrooms are also very special. As an added treat, there is a pet rooster and a very mellow cat.

Visited this lovely place for the first time and loved the food!! Chocolate brownie was delicious and coffee was great. Loved the homely feeling with the rooster and cat. Staff were very friendly. I would recommend and will be stopping there again.

Breakfast and lunch menus excellent. Yummy milkshakes. Service was quick and friendly. Decor a little tired but outdoor area makes up for it
