Thought the pies not as good as a year ago. Mine lacked meat with too much gravey. Others in our group had a good pie. Excellent coffee very busy but nice outdoor seating.

...smoked fish in parsley sauce pies. Great salmon bagels too. And as for cakes, well, too many delicious ones to mention.

There are always plenty of daily newspapers so this is a nice place to... More
