First visit to this cafe in several years and impressed at the changes by the present owners. I really like the art work of vintage local street scenes and this adds to the atmosphere which is friendly and busy. Delicious, fresh and well cooked food served. Good selection of sandwiches, panini as well as main dishes. Outside seating in good... More

There was 6 of us including 2 small children. The gentleman couldn't have been more helpful as he joined 2 tables for us so we could sit together plus it was very busy. We placed our orders and when they came he said "the children's hot chocolate has more milk so they burn themselves". It also came in cups with... More

Saw the 'Best Cafe' banner and dropped in for coffee and a cake despite the rather utilitarian look. The furniture is very basic and somewhat worn out, hardly comfortable- school cafeteria style would best describe it. The menu tells you to order at the counter. The coffee wasn't all that good, the scone was fine. In summer the outside seating... More

Went here for lunch today, had the 'soup & sandwich combo', of carrot and pepper soup, and a toastie, followed by a cappuccino. The soup was amazing. Toastie was tasty ! Cappuccino was as good as Starbucks ! Looking forward to coming back in February so I can seat here again !

Had a wonderful lunch in here. We were on holiday in the area and decided on a local cafe for some lunch. We were a party of 9 with two pushchairs and 5 kids in total.
