Busy breakfast, but very tasty!

At 9.50am on a Monday morning we were surprised to find it packed. We ordered coffee, salmon Benedict and banana and butterscotch pancakes. Service was prompt and friendly, food was delicious. Due to the busy atmosphere and several small children present it wasn't quiet, but for a tasty... read more

What was the big fuss about this establishment. True it is very busy but this is a student area and yes it is better than the beans on toast that some students call nosh (dinner). Ambience is great as you'd expect being busy with students and locals alike. Ordered the Balboa and business breakfast. My sandwich was a large portion... More

I don't know that i would say it was "very" good but it would be an injustice to say the Butterfly Cabinet was only average. We've been a handful of times while visiting family. The prices seemed very reasonable despite being told otherwise, however I am used to London prices & it was certainly a little less than those. We... More

Really good food. I would say slightly overpriced and no 'light breakfast' option eg croissants. But an enjoyable experience!

Huge selection on menu (made it difficult to choose), dunno if that's good or bad? Friendly staff and good atmosphere. I've been told by two friends about this eatery...and it is clearly popular with the locals :) i wasn't greatly impressed but I didn't have the breakfast, which seems to be the highlight :) will try again soon. Many thanks

I have only been for breakfast, but wow. The best pancakes In the north east. Amazing for breakfast. One small thing that I do like is if you ask for a glass of juice, you don't get some tiny little glass with about 100ml of OJ. You get a real pint. Can not go wrong with any of the pancakes,...

The queues are there for a reason! Brilliant food, large portions, low prices and a quirky environment. A brilliant birthday breakfast for my dad, thanks!

This cafe came recommended to us and I can see why now. Fantastic food equally for carnivores and herbivores. Good portion sizes.

One of my favourites, the USA breakfast is to die for. Ive returned frequently for the eggs and salmon theyre so good. The lunch menu, particularly club sandwiches (and homemade chips) are to die for. The specials menu are updated frequently, very good selection of cold drinks, teas and coffee. The vibe is very relaxed, excellent and authentic decor (more... More
