Just had breakfast here with six friends, I had the small breakfast which wasn’t small at all, it was well cooked and very enjoyable. The large one was enormous. Lovely place and the staff were very friendly. We will be back.

Staff very pleasant although they forgot our order. Food came quite quickly although unfortunately alot of very burnt cheese on the panini (like charcoal). Not sure about the cafe being part of the local shop. Also quite pricey for the quality of food. Little issues...More

Stopped for lunch on the way home, warm and friendly greeting from the staff. There is a good small menu choice plus a specials board and if it is not on the menu the ladies seem more than happy to knock it up for you....More
