“A proper Full English”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

Just as you like it, delicious and filling, with all the trimmings and cooked to perfection. Lovely small place on the Canals, nice ambience, friendly staff.

They also serve all day breakfasts, Devonshire cream teas, burgers, sandwiches, eggs and have a great selection of cakes, teas and coffees. Service may be a bit slow but well worth the wait… really!

“Wonderful Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

I had found this little restaurant on trip advisor, thought i would try and find it, it's hidden but worth finding, the breakfast was lovely, really freshly made. The staff were very pleasant and helpful in every way.
They open at 09.30 am i recommend you get there for when it opens because 5 mins after and they are packed, it's only a little place but worth waiting for and eating at.

“Sublime breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

It wasn't the best weather, and inside was absolutely packed, but when we said we were ok to sit outside they brought us some dry chairs and wiped down the table and gave us great service.
The latte was really delicious - properly made and fresh coffee. The breakfast omelette was very tasty as well, with mushrooms, spinach and goats cheese, served with a side salad and we had extra portions of sausage and bacon, both of which were also really good quality and tasty.
The service was spot on - very friendly waitress who actually cared that we were enjoying it but didn't pester us, and we left feeling very content.
Will definitely be back.

“Always lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

Been here a couple of times in the morning. Coming from a Brit, the English breakfast is fantastic. Sure, the portion is a little dainty but this is not a greasy spoon and you shouldn't treat it that way. The place is always packed which is a testament to its food. We sat outside once as there was no room inside. It was a cold October day but they provide lovely warm blankets and it's on a gorgeous street by the canal so we enjoyed watching the world (cycle) by. We also never once felt forgotten about as can sometimes happen when you sit out.
Highly recommend! I'm sure we will return once more.
