Given the other reviews here we must have been on a bad day. The coffee was ordinary, the eggs were watery and the service was gruff.

Great food - for lunch, brunch or dinner. Always fresh and clean. Try the French Toast mmmmmmm! Great Iced Mocha - remember to ask for blended, it's best! Also have a stall in the market in town - great for fresh pastry!

Very slow breakfast served with a smile. Happy and friendly waitresses. Tasted nice when it finally arrived. Lovely blueberry & chocolate muffin. Takeaway is probably a better bet unless it was just a bad day:)
