A great choice of teas and coffees. The main meals and the cakes are really tasty. Lovely decor in the café area.

Chillie B's is so gorgeous! It has a seating area or alternatively a grab-and-go bar, as well as a garden at the back I believe although I have never been out there. In my experience, the food is a little bit oily but still delicious. I would recommend not going at peak times if you can help it (for example,... More

tried this for the first time on a very busy Saturday, found a seat perched in the window, was offered all sorts of combinations to cater for vegan and veggie diets, had the special flatbread (without cheese and with other things added) and it was totally delicious, great food, buzzy atmosphere, pretty place and really nice staff - nothing to...

Always friendly service from Bill, Sharon and their staff regardless of if you are eating in or taking out. The American pancakes with bacon, blueberries & maple syrup are fabulous for breakfast and the Texas Chainsaw is my lunchtime favourite

Have visited a couple of times now and really like it here. Limited seating so does get full up very quickly. Food is excellent quality and there is plenty of it. The pancakes are delish and the club sandwiches are huge and served with homemade coleslaw. Staff very friendly and smiley. Will certainly come back.

I get my lunch here at least once a week. Nevada desert sandwich is my favourite but you can get all sorts in here. I'm not a fan of the coffee though but that's a minor thing.
