Very welcoming atmosphere as soon as you enter. Food was delicious, a slightly limited menu, but it was definitely top quality. We'll definitely be back.

Each time there’s been a fantastic menu, offering up a new selection of fresh food and fascinating flavours. It’s never easy to decide what to have – most days I... More

What they serve at Thyme Square Cafe takes things to a new level. Delicious light pancakes, not sickly sweet; thick rashers of tender bacon nice and crispy at the edges with lashings of... More
