“Madly cheap and cheerful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

This is a totally unpretentious little café with eight tables, open seven days a week and serving good honest 'grub' of the 'builder's' variety (pic). Not for those of a delicate constitution, or seeking an elegant dining experience perhaps but certainly good home cooked food and very, very good value (full breakfast at a mouth watering £3.40 ! ! ).

The staff were warmly welcoming, busy and cheerful. No waiting and meals cooked immediately for each customer. Good product knowledge with a sound allergy awareness policy in place. Parking is free for one hour nearby. No hygiene certificate prominently displayed but the kitchen and counter area seemed to be well cared for and clean.

Decor, although perhaps in need of a lick of paint, is fun and of course 'mad hat' based (pic) so look out for the gas mask (pic), not that you will need it.

There is some outside seating on the traffic free pavement for the warm months (pic).

We will happily return.
