We have eaten here dozens of times. Always for breakfast or lunch. Food is flavoursome, consistently cooked perfectly and in good portions. Service is friendly and polite. Not many know it's here cause it looks like, well it is, an old house converted to a...More

Cafe is always busy and on the day we went none were free inside so we had to sit in the garden. It is a lovely setting, sheltered and quiet. We had a lovely meal and the chocolate mud cake was dark and moist and...More

This is such a great spot for a quick lunch. The cabinet food looked good and I had a salmon quiche with fresh salad. The coffee was strong and hot. Nice on a sunny day to sit outside

Really friendly fast service with great eggs. Ive eaten here previously and the food is always consistent. The coffee is also great. Pop next door to buy plants for your garden on the way home. Lovely outdoor seating on a sunny day

Excellent coffee and cafe food. It's not fine dining, but they do quality cafe fare just so well it might as well be. Everything they use is good quality and well sourced (delicious bacon). Prices are quite reasonable. Service is great - very attentive. They...More
