Great little cafe

Have been to this cafe a couple of times now - the food is very tasty and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The all day breakfast is really tasty and it has costa coffee. There is wheelchair access and the staff will assist you if needed. Very nice, will definitely use again

Went to the cafe in November 2015 and had one of the best homemade pies I have had full of chicken, ham and leek, real chips as well and a real cup of coffee at a great price. The staff were all very nice I gave it a Dave 5 Star!!!

This is obviously not a Michelin-starred venue but was perfect for our trip to the seaside - just what we wanted for a quick tea. M had a sausage toastie and I had eggs, chips, and beans. The two young guys behind the counter were friendly and everything was clean and tidy if a bit dated.
