As a local I have eaten here on many occasions and never leave disappointed. The food is consistently of a high standard and everything is freshly homemade. Special dietary requirements are also taken into consideration and these feature on both the savoury and dessert menus. The simple decor... read more

The menu is constantly changing using local, fresh, seasonal produce. The tiny kitchen can knock out plateful after plateful of very good, honest cooking; the waiting staff couldn't be more pleasant and... More

Love this place, great atmosphere, amazing food, good service. This place never fails to live up to my expectations, the salads are bountiful and everything is fresh cooked. How they do it is beyond me in such a small kitchen!

Always good and tasty. How they do it in that small kitchen is amazing. The quiche/pie is always delicious and its our number one choice for a quick lunch when shopping in PZ.

Popped in here today with my family. We were cold and hungry from a long walk around the coast path. The food was amazing. We had 3 steaming hot bowls of Dahl soup with garlic bread. Then to follow pear and amaretto cheesecake for us, and chocolate orange cake for my little boy. You can tell it was all homemade.... More

Whether it is just a cuppa and a wonderful piece of homemade cake or a freshly prepared lunch, this place is great. Nothing fancy, wooden tables and scattered cushions but delicious, well priced good food served by very pleasant, helpful people

Stumbled across this fantastic little café, a real gem. Looking in we saw all the tables filled (always a good sign) but fortunately someone was leaving so we jumped in. First thing that struck me was the bright airy room, large windows flooded with sunlight made it very welcoming. The next thing was the sight of their sweet trolley ...so... More
