My friends and I have a 'girlie' lunch once a month and when we say 'where shall we go' the answer is invariably 'Café Max!' The menu is not large however there is normally a 'special' and the food is well prepared, served on modern white china. I am a non meat eater so invariably go for the fish cakes... More

Restaurant quality food from warm and welcoming staff. We've never had a bad meal here and have been regulars for a couple of years. Lovely people, nothing is too much trouble and the breakfasts are of the highest quality in the area. No cheap sausages here! Lovely outside area in the summer, would recommend to anyone.

Popped in there today for a spot of lunch, great service, great food (Cumberland sausage sandwich with a hint of English mustard!), very busy but quickly served, what's not to like?

There's always a warm welcome here. With a varied menu and specials board it's always quite hard to choose, although I must say the Eggs Benedict is my absolute favourite. There's a garden to sit out when the weather's fine. They cater for special occasions too.

A very good little find. Really relaxed atmosphere with excellent food. They even can deliver prepared food for parties.

Having frequented Cafe Max when living in the area, my husband and I headed back there prior to a family gathering. We arrived Sunday, around 1.30 as they were obviously near to closing, but they insisted we stayed and thoroughly enjoyed a light lunch, exactly what we were looking for. We were made very welcome and certainly not hurried. Yes,... More
