A little gem, we popped in to warm up on a cold, but crisp day. Excellent service and beautiful home baking. We will go back. Highly recommended.

We asked in the pharmacy for directions to the best cafe and were told that we should go to Franco's which is at one end of the main street just beyond the CO-OP Supermarket. We only went for coffee and that is all we had although there is an extensive rage of pastries, scones and cakes to which many of... More

I was in need of a rapid snack. I was looked after quickly and got just what I needed even though it was not listed on the menu. Not only that, they were quick too.
