This is a little bit of a hidden gem. It is a cafe in the middle of a big park with some very nice and healthy food cooked with care, mainly based in a Greek/Eastern Europe base. So it is not a surprise if this small cafe is considered one of the best places to eat in the area, because... More

We have known & loved this cafe ever since it opened. The welcome, the food - the staff became our extended family! When my lovely husband died last month, there was only one place to hold the reception after his funeral. It could not have been a more perfect choice. The studio was ideal to accommodate the approximately fifty friends... More

We visited the park today and at the end of our walk visited the cafe. I have been before but have only ever had coffee and cake. The group decided to have lunch as it has been a beautiful day and very pleasant to sit outside and eat. It was busy but unfortunately we had to stand for 15 minutes... More

This is one of my favourite places. It's efficiently-run (e.g. the tables are cleared regularly) and looks good - (flowers, posters, attractive packets on display, pleasant toilets). The staff are lively and friendly and the overall atmosphere is fun. The cake display is particularly gorgeous. Very hard to resist! Many cakes are homemade and more interesting than the cakes you...

Wow, thank you for taking the time to leave so much information for potential visitors, we really appreciate it. We are so glad that you have enjoyed your visit. We do agree that 5pm/5:30pm can seem early. We did try and open until 8pm a couple of Summers ago but unfortunately it was just too weather dependent. Please do continue... More

Good place to pop into after walking the dog or having been to the nearby park. Sometimes quite busy so there is a long queue to the till. Food freshly prepared. Range of cakes very tasty. There is outside seating.

My daughter ordered a kids pizza, but didn't like it, we both tried it and had to agree it was pretty unpleasant. Our meals were average as well. We all left thinking that the cafe visit was the worst part of an otherwise enjoyable wet walk.

Hello I was very disappointed to read your review and we are really sorry that you did not enjoy your lunch. If you had told us at the time we would not have hesitated to replace it for you.

If only all park cafes were like this. Fabulous home-made food with a difference. Try the homemade bread !! Sometimes rather busy and service can be slow. Great if you have your dogs as you can sit outside with them. A couple of extra items on the menu would aid regulars !
