Lovely choice of food, menu is a nice size and always have a large selection of cakes. Visited a few times with family, they are always nice and busy on a Saturday creating a lovely atmosphere.

Situated in trendy Leigh and catering for ladies that lunch, couples, singles and young mums with babies. Trendy old fashioned cafe with lace table clothes and nine china tea cups. Very busy at lunchtime. Order taken fairly quickly as was delivery of same. However, omelettes were rubbery and poached eggs were hard boiled. Jacket potatoes looked quite attractive.

Just a perfect start to the day we had the smaller full English brekkie and a lovely strong pot of tea for two! It was served with smiles on lovely mismatched fine china that so perfectly complemented the decor. Delicious herby sausages, a really deep smoky bacon, mushrooms, a perfectly soft cooked fried egg and little crisp saute potatoes with... More

I have visited many times. Food delicious. Service great. Have a gluten free menu which is very good. Have gluten free cakes and sandwiches which is also fantastic.
