We stopped in here for a late breakfast. I would say it was good value for money, the kids iced chocolate drinks where to die for - the food was good and a good price, the staff where friendly and the atmosphere was comfortable. We where more than happy :)

Service was ok, food was ok. Wasn't awful but wasn't good either. Good value options but I would say try somewhere else! Not worth the visit.
