Visited here this morning for a late breakfast . What a lovely cheerful cafe. Welcoming friendly staff, delicious bacon and egg sandwiches on the tastiest bread. Service was brilliant and all the staff smiling and professional. Thankyou all for a delicious breakfast.

Friendly, helpful staff serving delicious food. The sandwiches are filled to the brim, the soup is home made and piping hot. The toilets could do with more thorough cleaning.
