Used this place during a stay in Downton. Please visit. Staff are just lovely. Service is good and most of all the coffee and food they serve is just outstanding. Lovely, clean & modern inside. The owner must be very proud of this little cafe....More

Nice little cafe with quite a mix to chose from. Four of us all had something different and no complaints all round. They use local produce which is all a good standard. Plenty of seating and plenty of parking.

I visit this cafe whenever in the area (motorcycling) and always receive a friendly welcome and good quality food. This last visit I and a friend both had sausage sandwiches which were excellent (flavoured with leeks and available to buy from the butcher next door!)....More
