The meat beatufully tender. The waitresses were very smiley and helpful. Good value for that lunch or jsut a tea and... More

My friend and I recently met for lunch and a catch up at this lovely cafe and received a very warm welcome. When we saw the extensive menu of tempting paninis, we decided to each order a different panini and share them; my friend ordered the chorizo and mozzarella panini, while I went for bacon, brie and cranberry. Both promptly... More

Excellent breakfast - set us up for a long day at the races. Good value for money.. Small venue that got quite hot and stuffy as it filled up.

Wow. Brilliant review - pulling no punches! Really pleased you enjoyed your breakfasts and hope you enjoyed your racing too. The shop is a bit small and can be tight when full which fortunately it quite often is. We are stuck with the space but will try to make sure that the food is as good or better the next... More

This wasn't my first visit to this lovely establishment, nor will it be my last. This however, is my first review of the place, its staff and food. As other reviewers have named it, this really is a little Gem of a place. It's nestled in a lovely clean,cobbled court yard, with a couple of other small shops too. From... More

Meeting up here with a friend for lunch couldn't have been a nicer experience. Cheerful, helpful staff, a great choice of light bites and delicious cakes, and a pleasant atmosphere. Definitely a venue we will be returning to in the not too distant future.

A small but lovely and cosy place, also with tables and chairs outside in the courtyard when the weather is fine. The staff are very friendly and there is a great range of cakes and light meals. The coffee in particular is excellent and their eggs Benedict is the best we have had for many years, certainly as good as... More
