During the week, they offer a good consistent coffee. It's not too bitter, watery or weak as it can be at other places. The girls are always friendly. Well done!!

Good coffee and tasty country-meets-town food. Great cheese rolls, a local speciality which are perfect for the kind of cold day we struck.

A while since I have been here but would always recommend - good food & coffee - can sit at a table, in the window on stools or in more comfortable chairs. A small space is available outside on the pavement in good weather. Also do takeaway coffee & have a coffee card :-). Not a big café so pays... More

Nice place for a lunch stop with plenty of choices from the counter. I enjoyed some warm roasted vegetables which was a nice alternative to the typical cheese sandwich a vegetarian finds in many of the take-away cabinets.

Loved the great food. Awesome atmosphere & excellent coffee. Obviously a local favourite cafe as it was really busy. That didn't slow down the service any though :-) Highly recommend!
