Enjoyed a hearty English breakfast, great coffee and baked goods. We sat in the rear porch which was fully covered and heated as it was the start of the colder months. The wait staff was very polite and helpful.

I haven't been to this lovely cafe before, but will easily go back. Such an array of wonderful desserts, coffee was good and the risotto was so plentiful, with big chunks of chicken and mushroom. Fantastic value, couldn't eat dinner that night.
