“Slow, good food though”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We ordered 4 breakfasts, we were told it would be20 minutes. It was almost an hour. That said the food was good.
Waitresses don't help. They spent most of their time chatting, they didn't clear our table of part of the last people's breakfast, didn't do the coffee until we prompted them and brought the cutlery after the breakfasts. They were generally disorganised.

I hope they cope better when they are busy, otherwise it would have been a 3 hour wait.

“Good local cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

My son and I stopped here having walked around the local lake for lunch. It was friendly and the light lunch was excellent.

“Nice little stop for coffee on route from north Wales”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

A very nice roadside cafe bigger than it looks from the outside, coffee not too bad...looks like they did meals although did to see any brought out. Service a bit slow for two coffees...

“Cafe feel, simple menu, small portions.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

They seemed a bit confused to be honest, ordered two identical meals one came out with 4 sausages and one came with none. Fried potatoes consisted of a few sliced pieces buried under something else.

The "giant 3 egg" omelette wasn't that giant but its ok because i had 4 slices of toast (way too much).

Ok if you're not expecting much, alright value but expected portions to be bigger. Just a bit average.

“Not so good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

I'd become a bit of a regular at the cafe, but I have to say I won't be in a hurry to return after my last visit. The food was bland and only lukewarm, and service was pretty poor - there was no attempt to clear the table after our main course and no-one asked if we'd like anything else. The whole place looks in need of a good fettle!
