Lovely veggie brekkie with a proper cuppa!! Lovely service with a welcoming atmosphere. The setting is tucked off the high street and has a wonderful uniqueness. Will always be one of my favourite places

On two occasions now I've got back to the office with my order only to find I've been given someone else's. I didn't say anything the first time however called to let them know on the... More

I popped in here recently for breakfast which for a full English is around £8ish. The food took quite a while to come out but when it did I was disappointed. The bacon was like rubber with more fat than bacon, the toast was stone cold and the egg just covered in grease. My coffee was also bitter tasting. The... More

We went for breakfast, I ordered the full breakfast and my husband ordered eggs benedict with two cappuccinos. My fried eggs was cold, the sausage was dry, as though it had been cooked the night before and warmed up, the bacon was dry. I asked for white toast and got brown. My husbands eggs were hard, the yokes were solid,... More

Lovely content to the traditional English breakfast. Best menu around. Shame the plates are always cold. By the time plate reaches the table the food is all cold.

Friendly and spacious independent coffee shop just off the high street. Nicely decorated and decent collection of cakes and lunches. Very popular at lunchtime which is unsurprising by the quality of food and friendliness of all staff. Loved it.

This cafe is quirky and lovely food but you pay nearly £3.50 more to eat the same food there instead of taking away. I appreciate you pay for the seating, atmosphere etc but there are lots of other places just as nice that are loads cheaper.

Description
We, Jo & Lisa, individually had the dream of running our own businesses one day.. That dream was united via a mutual friend.. With a love for food and all things natural, Eden was established in July 2006 and we've never looked back!!! What makes us special? Well, we believe in running a succesful business that makes everyone of our customer feel at home the second they walk in.. Our suppliers are local small businesses where possible and we insist on using quality fresh ingredients without compromise.. In June 2009 we relocated to a larger premise just 2 doors up with the capacity to seat 60 people! As from April 2010 we are licenced!! Just another string to our bow... In 2011 Lisa took over Eden .. Missing Jo but she has made herself into super mum!! Please do come in, and try our yummy food and homely relaxing atmosphere!
