Great fry up

Mocha is the best place to visit the morning after the night before! Their fry ups will fix any hangover! They also do yummy milk shakes for the kids

Staff were friendly but food not good. Everything comes with a side salad which is not a bad thing....... but who puts pasta on a side salad. Weird. Food was ok but waited a long time and was expensive for what we had.

Family owned and run for 45 years (it says so on a blackboard), this is a firm favourite for breakfast; and all is prepared in front of you, with good coffee or a home made milk shake to drink. The menu boasts burgers, fish and daily specials for later in the day too. Free wifi keeps you online too!

Popped into Saffers to peruse the market and shops, found several pubs and restaurants displaying a lot of nonsense on their menus before stumbling across this little gem down a windy side street hidden away a bit. A couple of expensive bicycles lent outside the window is always a good sign, and their jockeys seemed perfectly at home clip-clopping their... More

Ate here on the 28th of dec. ordered the big breakfast called the ganet and a 'thick shake'. The breakfast was reasonably priced with good fast service. Very friendly staff. All you could want from a local cafe.

You get what you pay for and its good value for money. They have everything from a salad and jacket potatoe to a gannet breakfast with the works along with 2 hot drinks all for £15. The only let down was you have to go out the front door upstairs to the toilets which are a let down and not... More

It looks very dark from the outside, a bit of a 70's throw back. Once past the fog of cigarette smoke where the smokers sit outside the service was good. The cooking can be very hit and miss, not consistent. I would use again, mainly they serve breakfast all day.
