Lovely venue for breakfast or lunch, home baked cakes and always happy to help

This is a restaurant/cafe that I use frequently with friends, and have done for years. They are always welcoming, you're able to reserve tables, there's an outside area for the warmer months and the food is always lovely. Personally, I love the breakfasts and paninis, these are always served to... read more

It's been 2 years since we last visited...so decided to give Cafe Max another go. This time we were acknowledged promptly, served our drinks and then left... whilst tables around us (some of whom arrived after us) ordered and we're served their food before we'd even been asked what we would like. It seems these were regular customers...but surely you... More

Cafe Max is an excellent place to eat, whether it be for breakfast, lunch or just a nibble in the middle of the day, fast good service, good quality food, and the best customer service for miles, after just a few visits the waitress remembered us and even what we like to eat, the staff will open and close the...

Came to Cafe Max again today. Asked for smoked salmon and scrambled eggs - not on the menu but they made it for me anyway. Owner is a trained chef - not just a cook, and it shows in the quality of the food. The staff are all so welcoming, I've yet to find a cafe that's beats this one.

Love trying new places so decided to visit cafe max today with a friend. Was a beautiful day so we sat outside to eat. We ordered a duck hoisin wrap, a salad and some sweet potato fries. The food was amazing as well as the service. Cant wait to revisit 😆 x

Came here on a saturday morning for breakfast.. It was very busy and i now no why. Staff and service were great. The food was very nice. You can alway tell by the sausages and bacon. These were like what you would get from your favourite butchers. Will be back.
