Great place for lunch

This is a great place for lunch, or just coffee and cake. Good food at a good price, a regular favourite!

This is the best place in town for breakfasts. They know how to make lovely soft scrambled eggs, served on a warm plate, with real wholemeal toast (not granary, unlike many other places, which is just white bread with seeds).

Enjoyed a wholegrain chicken bacon spring onion and mayo baguette (bread was warmed and crispy) and a piping hot sweet potato and peanut pie. Pleasant, relaxed, comfortable. Good service. Food was fine-a good choice for a cafe lunch.

With comfy chesterfield armchairs, local art and the best pop up locally grown veg shop on a Friday, this cafe has much to offer. A very limited snack and cake affair but just the job for a small business meeting, a place to feed baby and have a cuppa or tea with the ladies. All this and you get to... More

The breafasts are served till 11.30 and later on Sundays and are delicious,never greasy and well prepared. The menu contains many healthy lunches ,all of which are prepared fresh to order. My favourites are Goats Cheese and... More

We are so pleased to have found this little gem. The staff are amazing and the food is fantastic. They do delicious little specials that is often a topic of conversation when I phone my Dad who is a local (unlike us) and also loves it! Great value. Go go go!

Went here yesterday for lunch and was very impressed with both the service and the food. Quiche of the day was beautiful and obviously prepare with a skilled hand. Definitely worth a visit!

Brilliant food mostly cooked on the premises. Very tasty. Service can be a bit slow when busy but well worth the wait.
