“Lovely little cafe and a bit different”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Popped in for breakfast instead of having the hotel breakfast and it was a good choice. I had the full breakfast which was lovely, especially the sausuages, and at £3.95 great value. The wife had the special of eggs benedict which she enjoyed but the poached egss were slightly overcooked. Nice Latte.
Loved the atmosphere of the place though with the murals etc.
Recommended.

“Lovely Breakfast”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

Having been to this café many times when visiting from London, I had to write the review. Breakfast is superb as is the owner Ken who is always smiling and ready for a chat preferably about Fulham football club. You wont find a better place for a reasonable priced breakfast, go and find out especially if you are staying at the Premier Inn who charge much more.

“Great little cafe.”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

We were staying in the nearby Premier Apartments and discovered this little gem quite by accident on our way into town. Sometimes you get a feeling about a place when you enter and this had an instantly nice atmosphere. The décor might be described as retro modern. There is a huge and very intricate mural titled "Under the Mersey Moon" inspired by a Jimmy Rae song, which takes up most of one wall. When we asked the very attentive waitress about the painting she produced two free postcards of the mural which was a nice touch.
There is a good choice of food but a speciality is the all day breakfast which is really tasty and at about £3.50 ridiculously cheap. There is free WiFi and reductions for students. It was a real treat to eat here after a few very disappointing and quite expensive lunches in several other city centre restaurants. Highly recommended!

“Great Little Cafe...”
Reviewed 4 November 2013 via mobile

Love going to this cafe when in that part of town. Great breakfasts at very reasonable prices and their lunch menu is very good too, a simple selection but always done well. Have always received a warm welcome and friendly service on each visit.
