“Disgusting toilets, dirty floors. Food was good.”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

If food hygene is anything to go on based on cleanliness of toilets, stairs and floors of this cafe then customers should look further around the place.

We were very pleased with the food and coffee we had lunchtime last week. Please give the toilets a coat of paint, and a good clean. Then wash the floors and stairs.

“Great food and service”
Reviewed 14 April 2013

Lovely cafe with lots of choice. Nice surroundings and the cakes are so tempting. We went in the morning and ordered a full breakfast. It was really delicious and not greasy at all. The bread is nice here too.
