Description: out walking and found this cafe it has only just opened april 2011. Would like to say what a lovely find it was. The produce was beautiful and such lovely staff. I think they deserve to suceed. Everything was good and it wasn't expensive. They serve cakes hot cold sandwiches, soup jacket patotoes.

This only a small place but the food and service are of a high standard. Ok so we had to vacate our table for the next customers due to the size of the place, but we were given a free bottle of wine to share on the front terrace and we had all but finished. Well worth a visit but... More

Went for coffee with my wife and 2.5 year old son- manager told us there was no space anywhere and that the place was fully booked. I would have believed her but the fact that there were only 2 customers there! Went to the pub next door and after 30 minutes there were four people outside. Why then say no... More

I have visited this cafe frequently over the last 12 months of my maternity leave and up until my visit yesterday have always really enjoyed both the food and the atmosphere. Yesterday however I was very disappointed with both the service and the food that was served. My vegetarian breakfast consisted of a pot of beans, 2 fried eggs and... More

Great place, great staff and a good menu choice. They didn't have available what I wanted but came up with an excellent alternative. The chunky chips were great Very comfortable and great atmosphere.

Very well presented but we have only ever been here for breakwarrr. The vegetarian one is my fave and the worse half prefers meat in her mouth, although she said it does not have quite enough beans on the breakfast. I wouldn't know, I do not eat beans. Eggs in order and a lovely amiable warm service is provided.

this tastefully decorated cosy cafe has it all.Delicious, locally sourced food at reasonable prices, perfect location for lunch or afternoon tea following a walk around beautiful Newmillerdam country park and an outside seating area. It is ideal for dog-walkers who can tether their pooches to the rings outside or bring them into the patio area. Clean water bowls are supplied... More

We visit newmillerdam quite regularly, but have the café over the road and the nearby pubs have never really appealed. Just as we were about to return to the car we noticed a small board pointing us in the direction of the cafe – it’s slighty out of view, just round the corner from the water, next to the Toby...
