We decided to visit the garage lounge after reading mixed reviews. Firstly the way which you place an order is strange. There is no indication that you have to go up and order at the till until you try and catch somebody's attention. Once the order was taken from the person in front of us the staff member disappeared to... More

Seriously yummy breakfast. Eggs florentine is delicious with homemade hollandaise sauce and plenty of smoked salmon. Milkshakes are really really good too. Wish the pots of tea were a bit bigger and came with more milk!!!!

This place has a wonderful vibe and does indeed have great cakes and very good, hot and cold food which is quite different (for example, eggy bread) on a rather limited menu, but it's not pretending to be a restaurant, so what it does, it does brilliantly. However, I, too, (see TMolS' review) was stunned by how small my acai... More

I couldn't believe it would cost £3 for one cup of tea , and then be told that we couldn't have an extra cup with it , the pot of tea was enough for two people but this tight business wanted us to spend £6 for two cups of tea ?? Utterly over priced , and the food was also... More

I went today and I wanted a smoothie - waitress said it's all pressed fruit done on the spot so I went reading the menu; they had two really interesting combinations that stood up from the others: blueberries, acai and pomegranate & banana, coconut and pinapple. "Weird", I thought.. "Innocent Drinks, the coca-cola company sells the same particular combinations".. Anyway;... More

Great food, great ambience. Can sit inside or in the garden or watch folks go by at the front. Lovely for lunch or a snack or takeaway. Particularly the cupcakes and home made cakes! I'm a repeat customer.

Never been to this cafe before thought i'd pop in and grab a bite to eat. I had the breakfast which consisted of Heinz beans. Bacon, chorizo sausage, toast and a fried egg. I had this with a cup of tea which was a lovely meal well presented and the tea tasted like tea unlike some other cafés that I... More
