“Step back in time!”
Reviewed 7 February 2014

Amazing 50's cafe! Breakfasts to break any diet. If you want to experience a bit of nostalgia and a no frills, hearty breakfast, this is the place. On a Sunday mornings, whilst the rest of Shaftesbury is either sleeping or in church, 'The Peel' is full of people soaking up their breakfast experience. It should be preserved as a 'Historic Site'.

“Warm welcome, great fry-up and coffee”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

Was walking through Shaftesbury on a damp January afternoon and I fancied a fry-up. Saw a sign in the window for all-day breakfasts so I tried this place out. Got a very friendly welcome from the older gentleman on duty, who helpfully described the menu options to me. I was half-way down my supersized inclusive latte when a fantastic freshly cooked fry-up was delivered to my table. Can't fault the place, sorted me right out!
