I haven't had a chance to eat in the cafe yet, however I regularly buy fresh bread and other organic groceries here. The bread is beautiful and tasty (I usually go for the half and half). They have a good selection of groceries and all at reasonable prices for the quality. The staff are always very friendly, even when I... More

Most often I have soup here and it is fresh good and served with bread of your choice. It feels like a healthy choice for lunch. They also sell some organic veg just outside the cafe.i

The food here is so fresh, healthy and delicious always served with freshly baked bread. The cafe is cosy and bright and a very pleasant place to have lunch. I can highly recommend the salads and soups. They don't have a coffee machine, so only serve filter coffee, but have a good selection of teas, both ordinary and herbal.

Thank you for your lovely review. Though I would like to clarify one thing about the coffee. We do in fact serve a full range of espresso drinks. It just so happened that our trusty old machine that has been with us for over a decade decided to have a bit of a holiday. We went a few days without... More

I personally have known all the full time staff and owner for nine years and never once have I seen any evidence to suggest or indicate your opinion.... More

Have been a regular for years, but never thought of writing a review until now. The food is always excellent and the wheaten bread is the best, proper old fashioned, coarse and crumbly unlike the commercial stuff that the supermarkets and most home bakeries are doing now. The staff are always pleasant and nothing is too much trouble. The selection... More
