“Great little cafe”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

We are in here 2 or 3 times a week for coffee and a snack or lunch. Very good food, competitively priced and the staff are incredibly friendly.

“It's good but.......”
Reviewed 17 July 2014 via mobile

Been lunching here for years and love it. Good coffee and food, if a bit overpriced. But please stop changing the menu. Too many specials and less of the old favs. No ciabatta bread anymore!! Also often come (came) with a vegan but now nothing for him so he has gone elsewhere and I am now joining him as it's difficult to socialise when in different cafés!!! However it is now very easy to get a table unlike even a year ago.

Thank you for your comments, which are duly noted, we have tried to change the menu format, so we can introduce more local seasonal food to our menu, so we have reduced the fixed menu and have increased the Specials board, Please ask if we have Ciabatta as we often have them as a special still, they are just not always advertised, I hope you keep coming and find the food you like.

Me and my partner often go here for lunch and it is always really good food and reasonably priced! Constantly busy but never experienced a long wait on food

Thank you for your review, and keep on coming for lunch, we try to design the menu around the capability of the kitchen to allow for when we are full, which is most lunchtimes, as we cook the food fresh there is sometimes a small wait, but never longer than the time to enjoy a good chat with your dining friends, I am glad that you enjoy our food and service
