The place was recommended by staff at the GVI Oncology around the corner. Delicious Full English Breakfast prepared to order. Very friendly and attentive staff. I suspect they will attract even more custom if they provide WI-FI to customers.

This little gem is situated in the centre of George and has plenty of free parking to go with it. The breakfasts here are devine to say the least, another one of those venues where you take your sweetheart for a wonderful treat.

I planned my birthday party here. All arrangemenys were done over e-mail. Renate was always prompt and professional in responding. The venue was perfect! It looked amazing. Staff were friendly as always. Food excellent. Don't look further for a special event or just a quick lunch!

We had the opportunity to eat breakfast at Travel Bug on two consecutive mornings. Both times, we had outstanding food (traditional English breakfast with several cups of excellent coffee) and outstanding service with Yolande (pardon the misspelling). The restaurant is comfortable, clean, and bright. The garden in the rear is a very nice place to get away from the street... More
