Not a greasy spoon!

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... read more

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.

We were visiting friends nearby and went to Saffron Walden for a look around. Found this cafe and decided to stop for breakfast. They had a good menu & you order food and drink at the bar. Breakfast was well cooked & a reasonably priced.

I have live in Saffron Walden for 20 odd years and didn't know this place existed! Met some friends there at the weekend for brunch. Don't expect the usual airs and graces of a Saffron Walden cafe. It's much more down to earth than that. What you do get is a buzzing town centre unpretentious cafe that does great "transport... More
