I visited here during the week with my mum and 3 year old son, such a delightful quaint atmosphere with mismatched china tea cups and furniture. The staff were so friendly and helpful we only had coffee and scones which were freshly made and delicious! What perhaps seems even more appealing to me was the extra little touches my son... More

On a sunny day, my husband and I stopped here for a bite of lunch, and were absolutely delighted by what we found. The specials board is full of inventive dishes - I had the crab meat croque madame cupcakes, which came in a little toast bowl. He tucked into the tasty lamb and roast carrot pie, which was juicy...

Fabulous little cafe. Stopped for lunch today and had a gorgeous bacon, brie and relish sandwich on crusty bread. The bacon was lovely and warm and melting the cheese - something you don't normally find. They have the biggest tray bakes I have ever seen in my life. I couldn't resist getting a fifteen to take home. The specials menu... More

We came here based on Trip Advisor reviews on a weekday, mid-March and got two mochas and a bun. Well priced and nice coffee. Came back and bought two takeaway lattes on Sunday 23rd March. I didn't see the girl make the coffee as I used the bathroom. Took them to the car and scalded my tongue on the first... More

We often go to olive bizarre when out for a walk on a Sunday. It has become a regular treat to ourselves and never disappoints. Their soups are always varied and unusual and a delight for a vegetarian.

Discovered this beautiful café while trying to seek some shelter from the horrid weather during the week. As soon as I entered I was made feel welcome by the staff and served some of the most delicious coffee I've ever tasted as well as a scrumptious slice of gluten free cake with fresh cream. Was so nice to sit and... More
