Consistently good little cafe. It's been there for a long time & its popular with the locals. Small & casual with both indoor and sheltered outdoor seating. The coffee is very good. In addition to the menu there is always a good selection of counter food. Their muffins are particularly good.

Had a flat white and a bran and date muffin. Still licking my lips. Fantastic way they make their scones which I would have loved to have tried. Coffee was brilliant.

Delicious breakfast. Ordered a good cross section of the menu with 7 pax eating. All dishes exceeded expectations. Big breakfast was so large we needed to share out the bacon and sausages. Eggs Benedict was spot on. Really great coffees too! Very nice waitress.
