Excellent value for money at this friendly cafe. How refreshing to find a traditional 'caff' still serving piping hot no frills breakfasts with steaming mugs of tea at traditional prices. A warm welcome to go with the meals, it was easy to see why the Cafe appeared to be full of locals. A little off the beaten track, but well... More

Fancied a full English Breakfast so went here based on other Tripadvisor recommendations, It's a fairly basic 'transport caff' with plastic tables and formica chairs. There's a small, medium & large breakfast at reasonable prices with the ability to customize by adding 'extras' like black pudding, extra bacon etc etc. Order at the counter and pay upfront then your tea/coffee...
