I often visit here with my grown up children. Never been disappointed. The staff are friendly and attentive and the food is excellent. They have started serving savoury crepes which we definitely need to investigate!

Really good value breakfast and drinks. Even a free biscuit with tea. A few outdoor seats, albeit on a busy road. Friendly staff. Basic, a bit dated, cafe decor inside but who cares at those prices. Good food too.

This is a great friendly cafe, when we are back in the country we always find time to drop in. Food is always ok, seemed a bit short staffed today, but there was 9 of us. Always very happy and friendly.

Cracking local cafe that also serves Polish food. Good quality ingredients cooked well. Really nice full English, great bacon and sausages not your usual low grade catering stuff. Really nice decor and lovely people. Fantastic place to take the family on a Sunday morning.

Love, love, love this little cafe. Favorites are the full English and sausage sarnies. Staff are attentive and friendly. Parking can be a bit problematic but it’s worth it!
