It's OK

Been to this café a few times, staff are just OK. s others have mentioned only order what's on the menu as getting an item changed is like asking for gold. I like my coffee to be hot but most of the time it's just warm. Not a café I go out of my way to visit but use it... read more

Went here 9th February at lunchtime (because our usual favourite - the café at the layby in Johnston was closed). The place was quiet - about five tables were occupied with about twelve people dining & the place was clean. Why then did it take 50 minutes to cook & serve two burgers & two coffees? And, as some other... More

I ordered a veggie breakfast, and was impressed by the amount on the plate. I had no complaints at the time, but both myself and partner felt ill afterwards. On reflection it was quite greasy and I shouldn't have eaten it all. Would i return? Probably not, but I have to accept responsibility for eating too much and making myself... More

Nice location, come along way since last visit, busy which is a good sign! Food was ok, could of been a bit fresher cooked, and a whisker warmer, tasted like if it kept under a hot plate! But drinks we're spot on, large clean place to be fair! Nice.

I think if you use the cafe regularly - then you must get treated differently to us incomers! The people at the next table to us were obviously local celebrities or something - nothing was too much trouble for the staff to run up and down for tham. Unlike us, my son asked if he could order another drink and... More

Have been here a few times, food is very basic, bland. One member of staff is very rude, ordered 2 breakfasts and only one came out! Went up to ask where the other one was, to be told I did not order 2! Very curtly! She was very argumentative, very unprofessional indeed. Cook came out and asked if I wanted... More

Cheap 'n' cheerful! Great value breakfast - the Traditional satisfied even my other half's appetite - and regardless of what other reviewers have said, you CAN swap your mushrooms for black pudding or an extra sausage and your fried bread for extra toast. Jacket spud was good - plenty of tasty cheese and the whole lot (including 2 mugs of... More
