You can never go wrong with this place. I had the mushroom, spinach and poached eggs with hollandaise on the side. The husband had poached eggs with a side of tomato and black pudding. The MiL had the crepes which were light and fluffy with lovely fresh seasonal berries Great coffee too

Very busy so service was slow but the coffee was worth the wait. If you buy the chocolate coffee beans they won't last long!

Tasty meals. Fresh food. Delicious. Very popular place to dine so always busy and quite noisy however because of the excellent food you get there it is well worth a visit.

Always good coffee and friendly staff. A busy main road cafe on SH2. Take care if crossing or entering from the South.
