Best breakfast I've had in a very long time. My wife and I stopped by for brekkie on a Monday morn and had great food, atmosphere, and service. Possibly the best eggs benedict I've ever had and the eggs and soldiers were epic. A must...More

I popped in for a sandwich at lunchtime and everything was fine until the waitress gave me a chocolate with an overly suggestive message on the wrapper. I had to add an extra sugar to my tea to get over the shock - potentially disastrous...More

Description
We're just a little family run local cafe
We're only small, but if you don't mind sharing a table, there's room for everyone
We don't have table service and we don't have paper menus. (our menus are written up on the wall and they change regularly)
The kitchen closes at 3pm, but you can still get coffee and cake after this time
We are not part of a chain, there is no CEO creaming off the profits.
We are just a little cafe doing our best, with the best ingredients we can get our hands on
