“Hot food on cold plates !”
Reviewed 16 December 2013

My friend and I had the all day breakfast, The bacon was barely warm. the sausage hot ( and very overcooked ) the poached egg was like a bullet , the mushroom was watery and the plate was stone cold. The toast was very dry too, It was no wonder that one customer left without paying, The good thing was the staff were very friendly which is more than can be said for at lot of these cafes where it is hard to tear some of the staff from their mobile phones.

“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.
