Yummy breakfast

My husband and I went to the AM Cafe for breakfast, it was very nice. I had mushrooms and tomato on toast and the flavour was delicious, my husband had a full English and thoroughly enjoyed it. Would return again.

A very, warm friendly, relaxing environment. Wonderfully caring attentive staff. A great selection of food, and have not experienced a more delicious plate of fish and chips ever, cooked to perfection time and time again... A thin light batter, soft melt-in-the-mouth cod, and chunky hand-cut chips. Their coffee is a real highlight and have enclosed a photo to illustrate, as... More

There ought to be a "not bad" category for little cafes like this. Busy, slightly chaotic and with an eclectic menu, if it doesn't manage to exactly put joy on a plate, it does provide satisfying and perfectly edible dishes with a difference. Was that pomegranate and grape in the fruit crumble ? Good coffee.

Cafe is attached to a small shop specialising in fresh fish and vegetables and these are the ingredients that appear on the menu. From staples such as fish pie or smoked haddock, creamy mashed potatoes with spinach to more exotic Pad Thai noodles with prawns there is something for all tastes. Everything is freshly prepared and tastes delicious. We, like... More

The AM Cafe has been closed until recently following a fire. We went on a busy Bank Holiday Monday for brunch and were pleasantly surprised. I had simple but delicious toast and excellent coffee. The rest of my family had kippers - deemed delicious- and granola with yoghurt (unfortunately the compote was extremely sour). I will definitely return for brunch... More

Ate here on a recommendation and really glad we did. We had swordfish on spicy noodles which was delicious and seabass with garlic potatoes, equally as good. Fresh home cooked food, good portions and friendly service. Just a shame they only open for dinner on Saturday's.
