“Cream tea heaven”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

You must try the Yorkshire Scones - Served with lashings of jam, butter and cream on a slate big enough for two, delicious ! Perfect, sat outside watching the boats and swans in the canal basin, staff go the extra mile to please :)

Love this place. They work so hard and go the extra mile to please with passion and commitment. Nothing is too much trouble. Food cooked fresh. If you want fast food go to McDonalds!!

“Very nice cafe”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Visited twice for breakfast. The breakfast rolls are very well filled, piping hot and tasty. If you aren't from Yorkshire you might want to ask for your bacon crispy as it never seems to come that way here! Coffee and tea were also very tasty. The service was really good...genuine and friendly. A tiny improvement point....the sauce bottles and table covers could have done with a bit of wipe down!
