This is a local favourite. Lovely setting with quality food and atmosphere. Staff are great and should not be missed. Close to the Bus and Train Station. You will not be disappointed.

My wife and I visited this cafe a few days ago and were disappointed by the very average food (frozen baguette squashed and toasted doesn't really cut it as a panini, massed of roughly chopped lettuce and badly cleaned crockery, we expected China cups etc but alas we only got a cheap pottery version.

I must recommend the scrambled egg on toast! It is the best I've had! It's always a pleasure to visit this café as the staff are pleasant and the food excellent. Whoever does the baking, top marks!
