Very good breakfast

We visited as a family on a Saturday morning around 10am, plenty of choice of where to sit at that time. We decided on the mini-fry, it was excellent quality with a bacon, sausage, egg, 1/2 soda, 1/2 potato bread and 1/2 pancake. A bit disappointed at the value for money, in other places you... read more

A really nice place to have lunch with your friend's after a busy day shopping, or just because you want a catch up! Lovely food and friendly staff.

We were recommended by our hotel. The place was comfortable and the service excellent. The fresh coffee was exceptional as were the cookies. We had sandwiches made to take away and these were well filled to our requirements. We would highly recommend this eatery,

Although it's small, if you do go and try it, the foods really nice, the staff are pleasant, it's very clean, the prices are reasonable, and as a result of all this, we returned several times and will keep doing so. All I can say is try it once to see for yourself...
