quiche was good, served with either salad or chips. Good honest fare. If you want a large cappuccino, ask for a double shot otherwise you get slightly flavored milk. Staff could have been more attentive, seemed a little disinterested .... paid the going rate I suppose.

Very poor breakfast, cheap food in a tatty looking cafe. I was the only one in and I know why! The staff spent the whole time moaning about everyone and everything including other customers!
