3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Breakfast of pancakes and maple syrup. The kids loved it. Great decor, spotlessly clean and stylish. Shame the waitress couldn't raise a smile.

“Steve”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

I popped in with a friend and received a very warm welcome from the owner. There was a very wide range of snacks and a good range of drinks. It is well worth a visit if you are in the area even if it is just for a cuppa.

“Great place to stop whatever the weather or time.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012 via mobile

Really glad I persuaded my friends to have lunch here. Warm welcome, great decor and ambience. Food was quick and very tasty too, I recommend the five stace half and half pancakes - but then everyone else's looked good too.

If you like something cool, friendly and with a hint of vintage and biking then this is your place to stop by.
