I would not recommend this cafe.I ordered soup and coffee this lunchtime.The mushroom soup was greasy and the coffee did not materialise.The man who appeared in charge,was rude and spent his time arguing and belittling his staff.I left very uncomfortable and left.

Just a few feet from the busy shops this was a haven for me and my dog. Had a cream tea which was quick to arrive and the scones were amazing. I loved the simple, down to earth environment and definitely coming back.

I love this simple, friendly cafe, good reasonably priced food. Vegetarian and gluten free food. Local art on walls etc. There are outdoor tables and take away. It does get busy at lunch when adult education classes are in session.

Nice and friendly with freshly cooked food, however the tables and chairs were very sticky and when I tried to clean one with a wipe (so baby could eat from the table) it was absolutely black with grime. Likewise the highchairs were filthy so I...More
