On the first day we got coffee from here and the food looked great so we went back the next day to get breakkiy. The eggs bene and the big breakkie were both delicious and came out fast and well cooked. The coffee was great all three times we went there.

Called in for lunch as it was highly recommended. Nice atmosphere and interesting decor. Staff were friendly. Chicken sandwich and steak sandwich were quite ordinary. Crepes looked good - I'll try that next time...

If in town make sure you visit this lovely little cafe. Friendly staff and great food and very generous portions as well. We went for breakfast and wished we had had time to come back and sample the lunch menu. Recommend.
