Very nice food, my second visit. Could you please give your staff a pay rise as this might make them happier and smile more.

We had the cafe burger which was beautifully seasoned with layers of flavours throughout and a very nice chicken Caesar salad. Friendly, knowledgable staff member and reasonably priced. What more can you ask for ?

Really nice cafe with super lunch menu choices & superb cake selection. Had the tasting platter (quiche, mini club sandwich & open salmon sandwich) which was delicious. Followed up with bounty cake which was really good. Excellent food with great service.

Went in here for breakfast one morning and found a great choice on the menu at very reasonable prices. The food was very good and very well presented, a real find. The only downside was that the staff seemed really glum and didn't say hello...More
