“Cosy wee cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

We read about this place in our guidebook & were very glad we went. Our timing was fortunate - a couple of people who came in after us were turned away. It looked like you can book ahead, so worth doing if you get the opportunity. The food was delicious & lived up to the descriptions on the menu. The menu offered a fair choice - impressive for such a little kitchen at the back. I read this place mainly uses ingredients that the team grow themselves. Given the food's provenance & the cafe's location it really is great value.

“Wonderful breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

Saw the rating for this place, and being a short walk from the hotel we decided to try it out. Got there at a good time, there was a table available immediately. Service was very good, the guy there was very attentive and friendly. Food was very good - lived the french toast and the homemade jams. Lively atmosphere, its very cozy and quaint. There's only a handful of tables though.

“Great breakfast in welcoming atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013 via mobile

We got there without reservation around 11.30 on a saturday morning and had breakfast with eggs. They use special herbs for the eggs, very tasty!!
The seating is limited but is very nice. Lots of locals as well - definitely a hidden gem we only found with Tripadvisor.

“Start your day right”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

This is a very popular place for breakfast but it's also very small so make sure you get there early or book a table. We had scrambled eggs and french toast. So, so good! They also have a great selection of tea and cake for dessert. This lovely little place is run by a couple who were very pleasant. I'd love to try their lunch next time.
