Lovely little café

Lovely little place. Lovely food, lovely service and the staff are amazing. Really impressed with the programme they run here for people who struggle to get into work. Well worth a visit and will visit again.

We now try to eat lunch here at least twice a week. The food is really great, all freshly cooked and the portions are generous. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed. Well worth seeking out if you fancy a real treat for lunch. Save some room for the cakes/scones. They're delicious!

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). Also highly recommend the chocolate cake with a latte, best cake in town IMHO. Nice place to meet friends or... More

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.

This is our regular Saturday lunch spot. The food choice is great and the cakes are to die for. Welsh Rebbit is a must!! Always clean with friendly helpful staff. Defo worth a visit.

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

This has to be my favourite place for Breakfast , Lunch and Tea. A busy but cosy place to meet up with friends. 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
