Had breakfast here a couple of times, it's nice to sit out front in the summer months while tucking in to a fry up, nice bacon from wrights butchers is always a winner 😀

We popped in here having moved to the Le Sokens in April 2015. We've managed to try as many local restaurants as possible and this place is up among the best. Popped in for quick lunch. The menu is not over burdened with too many dishes. We opted for the 2 course lunch special which was terrific value. The food... More

This is a great little cafe which is good for coffee, a quick snack or lunch/supper. It's a very busy place so if you don't have a reservation at busy times you may have a wait. The staff are very friendly and the food is excellent and reasonably priced. Nice atmosphere which is very family friendly.

My family and I were in this cafe yesterday and saw staff who were more than happy to go out of their way to help make the visits of everyone as seamless as possible. Seeing such attention to detail is a rarity and surely worth noting and reporting. The food is also delicious and those two facts simply compliment each... More
