Massive Q

Must agree with most other reviews. Very good cuppa tea, coffee served in mugs, and excellent cakes. Meals looked good too, but we stuck with drinks & cakes.

This is our favourite coffee stop. An excellent location and excellent service. A local cafe where people actually recognise you as a valued customer. Lovely food. Highly recommended - especially the flapjacks and scones.
